If you’ve never made your own hand cut French fries, you’re missing out! Theres nothing better than crispy, salty boardwalk fries from the convenience of your own kitchen. And it’s pretty simple too!!
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F
- Wash and Dry four Idaho potatoes (serves two)
- Slice each potato in half vertically (lengthwise)
- Slice each half vertically into six (or more) 2 cm pieces
- Spread the cut pieces out on a lined baking sheet with salt and olive oil *spacing is key
- Bake for 45 minutes (you can flip them half way if you choose)
If you’re anything like me, once you’ve had duck fat fries, there is nothing else that can compare. In step five, replace the olive oil with duck fat- you can find this in almost any grocery store in the baking aisle with the other oils. Duck fat makes the fries more crisp and savory without making them greasy or oily.
While the duck fat fries bake, you can start to prepare the garlic aioli. When it comes to aioli, I like a the tiniest bit of garlic with a hint of dill. Plus this recipe is super easy to make, you just mix all of the ingredients in a blender!
1 Egg yolk
1 Clove of fresh garlic ( I usually choose the tiniest clove)
1 Tbs. Lemon juice
1 tsp. Mustard or Dijon Mustard
1/2 c. Olive Oil
S & P to taste
Sprinkle fresh Dill
Blend all ingredients together until it forms a thick consistency and refrigerate to set. I like including this aioli recipe in my Sunday meal prep because it tastes amazing with Chicken too.
Level up and add an egg sunny side up- you’re welcome.

While we attempt to navigate life in a new city, life in a new home and life in a global pandemic- our days look drastically different than they did six months ago. While one of my favorite things to do is frequent local restaurants, we have had more time on our hands to create unique […]
I feel like- if there’s one fact everyone knows about me solely from social media, it’s that I’m obsessed with chocolate and cheese. Seriously, if I’m not posting about eating chocolate, I’m posting about eating cheese. One of my favorite gifts I have received is my Swiss ceramic fondue pot made for both chocolate and […]
Jon and I recently moved across the country (again) and this time it was during a pandemic. All things considered, the move went pretty well- but it definitely was not easy to adjust living in a new home and in a new city during “lockdown.” When we left Texas, we left a lot of the […]
