Last week Patrick asked me to make his favourite side for his birthday. What’s a girl to do? Giddy up! To make the job easy I used my mandoline slicer . I don’t have a deep fryer, so I use my cast iron pot. I like to slice up the potato (I used 2 white potatoes), and then transfer them to sit in an ice bath for 30 min. This seems to really help make a frite with more body.
Be sure to pat dry in tea towell before you put in hot oil otherwise the water will spatter…not good!
I do small batches, drain on paper towel and add sea salt as they come out! Yum!!!
Variations*** add freshly grated parmesan cheese and thyme, fresh pepper, truffle oil…
