Baked Battered Fries. Eye-catching, no? They certainly were to me. I put them on my list of things to make because I love french fries and little man loves them too. I thought they would be a nice change of pace from settling for McDonald’s french fries.
I’m a sucker for a good french fry. They’re best when they are fresh, piping hot straight out of the fryer or the oven or wherever they have been cooked. Mr. H doesn’t tend to care one way or the other about french fries. And C-Man prefers them over most other things he can get from a fast food restaurant, not that we give him fast food enough to know the difference.
I haven’t come across a homemade french fry recipe that I like yet. So far, I still think the best “homemade” fries come from the freezer section.
I saved this recipe because I thought it would be fun to have fries the size I wanted. I also liked the idea of adding a little flavor to my potatoes. (I’m a big fan of well-seasoned french fries.) Originally I planned to make these with another chicken recipe but got lazy and made them with our Super Bowl Sunday wings, which turned out to be a great idea.
The spices give the fries a nice flavor. I couldn’t tell much for it being a batter though. And I think I would have preferred these to be cooked in the fryer as opposed to the oven. Mr. H agreed with me on their method of cooking. The batter didn’t make quite enough for all m potatoes despite using the amounts in the recipe, so keep an eye on it!
Neither of us were blown away by these fries and the baby wouldn’t try them. However, I do think they can be altered and made better to try again. I will put these on my list of things to mess around with and make better!
