6-8 potatoes peeled & cut in long slices
oil for frying
1/4 c sugar
Put sugar in water. Then peel & cut your potatoes and soak them in the water until all of your potatoes are peeled and your oil is nice and hot. Cook about a handful at a time. Take the potatoes out of the water and dry them off on a towel, then put in oil and cook 5-6 minutes or until golden brown. Place them on paper towels in a pan to soak up the oil and sprinkle with seasoning salt (or regular salt). Place the pan in the oven on 300 while you cook the next batch of fries. This keeps the fries warm and crispy. Continue the process until all of your french fries are cooked.
1/2 c ketchup
1/2 c miracle whip
Mix these ingredients together. You could also add a little Tabasco sauce if you want.
These french fries where a quick and easy addition to our dinner one night. We were having hot dogs and I didn't have time to make a potato salad so this was my substitute. They turned out great.
