My coworker got in a car accident, she is okay, but prayers for her would be appreciated. I’m covering her through Monday and as such I won’t be posting anything for a bit. So here’s a quick recipe.
- Butter, Bacon grease, or other desired oil, 2 Tablespoons or so.
- Salt and pepper
Wash potatoes, peel if desired then slice crossways into 1/4 inch slices or thinner. Thinner will be crispier, thicker will be more french fry-like.
Melt butter or bacon grease in a skillet or saute pan. Make sure there is enough to cover the sides of the fries, but not the top.
Place slices in the pan, be careful when putting them in to avoid getting hot oil on yourself. Salt and pepper to taste.
Cook on medium high heat, turning occasionally until golden brown.
Remove fries from the pan as they become as brown as desired, drain on a paper towel. Fries will be very hot.
Serve plain or with condiments, as a side or as an (unhealthy) indulgence.
Try not to eat too many and I will see you when I return.
