How To Make French Fries

French fries have become an American’s favorite style of potatoes. The classic meal of a hambuger and fries brings back fond memories of the good old days of sock hop diners and drive-ins. The hearty tubers have become pervasive in American cuisine. Potatoes can be cut into batons or wedges, or if you have a mandoline, even waffle fries. For a healthier alternative, bake the fries rather than deep frying them. This will significantly reduce the fat content and creates less of a mess as well. You can season your fries to taste with traditional salt, kick them up a notch with some Cajun spice, or even load on some chili and cheese for a finger-licking treat. In this video, Chef Mark will show you how to make crispy french fries in a few simple steps. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
