Sounds made up? I'm not sure what you mean.

Also...another notch...heat some butter on the stove with a bit of fresh chopped rosemary and garlic in it - drizzle that over those fries - heaven!!!

Also, the best time to salt your fries is right when they come out of the fryer. The best way to "drain" your fries is on a cookie cooling rack. It keeps the air circulating around them to stay crispy i.e., they don't get soggy.

I like to soak the spuds in ice water for 30 min. to an hour...It's strictly an option though.. If you like the flavor of bacon...add a little bacon fat to the oil...or just fry a piece of bacon along with them...Lastly save some beef fat, and add that to the fry pot as well.

Yep - sorry about that. On the first frying you are only partially cooking the 'taters by frying - hence par-fry. If you were partially cooking something in boiling water, it would be par-boil.

These have nothing to do with McDonalds but they are a fav in my house!

BallPark Fries

12 ounces Ore-Ida frozen Golden Fries or Country Style Fries
1/2 T. Butter
1/2 T. olive oil
2 t. minced fresh garlic
2 T. fresh parsley-finely chopped
2 T. shredded parmesan cheese

Bake or deep fry french fries according to directions on package. Melt butter, olive oil, & garlic in small saucepan on low for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly to mellow garlic a bit. Place hot, crispy fries in medium sized bowl, drizzle with hot butter mixture and add fresh parsley & cheese over the top. Toss to blend.

I actually just bought a rosemary plant at a local farmers market, I will try that! Thanks :) Rosemary and basil are staples in my home! My DF would put rosmary on anything at least once to try it! ;)
