I cooked up a batch of chicken fried chicken a few weeks ago, and deep-fried the chicken in bacon grease, then made sawmill gravy. YUUUUUUMMMMMMM!!!!!!

Remove potatoes from water and dry off all excess water. Cook potatoes for one minute and remove. Allow oil to go back up to 350 degrees then place potatoes back in oil and cook until golden brown. Remove from oil, drain and salt to taste. (Even though they tastes good just like that I have a fry salt that I use which I mixed garlic pepper seasoning, sea salt, paprika and cayenne to taste)
sounds yummy. I try not to fry too often, might haveto make an exception though.... love MD fries over BK!!!!!

It's been a few years since I read the article.
I thought it was pork lard, not beef. Who knows....

ha ha.. That was funny on your side. Well, you are hoping to get the fries without any potatoes.. lol.. But that was a nice way to prepare french fries. I just hope that they would really taste like McDonald's French Fries. If they really would, then one can easily have them prepared at home and no need to go to McDonald anymore.

I haven't tried this since I don't make fries at home.....too messy and just not worth the effort to make a small batch just for me. Pre-fry the potatoes and then cool them in the fridge or even freeze them. Supposedly the cool fries stay nice and soft and moist in the center; but get very crispy on the exterior.
