Some recipes for hot potato fries include homemade crispy seasoned French fries and quick and easy home fries. To make seasoned French fries, peel and slice 2 1/2 pounds of russet potatoes into thin sticks, and set them in a bowl of cold water.
Heat 1 cup of vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of garlic salt, 1 teaspoon of onion salt, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of paprika. Add enough water, about 1/2 cup, for the mixture to have a light batter consistency. Dredge the potatoes in the batter, and place them one at a time into the skillet. Remove the fries when they are golden brown, and set them on paper towels to remove excess grease.
To make home fries, cube 3 medium russet potatoes, and rinse them in cold running water. Add 3 tablespoons of butter or margarine to a frying pan over medium-high heat. When the butter or margarine melts, add the potatoes, and season them with salt and pepper. Cover the pan, and allow the potatoes to cook for approximately 10 minutes. Cook the potatoes for an additional 10 minutes without the lid. Turn the potatoes continuously to brown all sides.
