Super Homemade Fries

Homemade french fries

I like fries as side dish for steak, burgers and hot dogs, and as a salty snack. My 6 year old still insits we have them on Friday. Get it? He says it’s because Friday was named for fries. ;)

We dubbed them ‘Frugal Fries’ since they cost so little to produce.  The amount of time it takes and forethought makes it a bit too difficult for everyday. I needed a lazy way to make awesome fries, so after some trial and error here’s the method and recipe for Super Fries!
