Crispy Homemade Fries

Do you remember that feeling of excitement when you’d rush to the local diner after school to savor a plate of perfectly crisp and golden fries? Recreate that magic at home with our Crispy Homemade Fries recipe. These fries are more than just a side dish – they’re a trip down memory lane.


  • 4 large russet potatoes
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Salt to taste


  1. Start by washing and peeling the russet potatoes. Cut them into evenly sized sticks, about 1/4 inch thick.
  2. Place the potato sticks in a bowl of cold water for about 30 minutes. This helps remove excess starch and promotes crispiness.
  3. Drain the potatoes and pat them dry with a clean kitchen towel.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or a large heavy-bottomed pot to 325°F (165°C).
  5. Carefully add the potato sticks in batches, ensuring not to overcrowd the fryer. Fry for about 4-5 minutes, or until they are pale and slightly softened but not browned.
  6. Remove the partially cooked fries and place them on a paper towel-lined plate. Increase the oil temperature to 375°F (190°C).
  7. Return the partially cooked fries to the hot oil in batches. Fry until they are golden brown and crispy, about 3-4 minutes.
  8. Remove the fries and drain them on a paper towel. Immediately season with salt while they’re still hot.
  9. Serve your Crispy Homemade Fries hot and enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce!
