  • 4-6 russet or sweet potatoes, peeled & sliced
  • sea salt to taste
  • canola oil for fryer


1. Pour canola oil into deep fryer and heat to 265 degrees.
2. Slice potatoes into fry-sized pieces.
3. Working in small batches, cook all potates for 3-5 minutes or until they are tender. Remove from fryer and lay on newspaper or paper towels. (Fries will be limp, greasy and pasty-looking. This is normal!)
4. Once all potatoes have completed the "pre-fry" process, crank the heat up to 375 degrees.
5. Again, cook potatoes in small batches and fry until they are golden brown. Remove from fryer and drain on paper towel-lined baking pan. Sprinkle with sea salt. I'm pretty sure you'll devour the first small batch while the second small batch is cooking!

**Beware, while this recipe is a favorite with friends and family, your house will smell like a greasy diner, maybe for days, when you're done! **
