These were perfect and easy to make! Just make completely sure you pat the fries dry before deep frying them! I made that mistake one time and they came out very soggy. As long as you follow the directions and make sure you pat them dry of the water and let them cool before deep frying them again they will turn out perfectly crispy and better than any restaurant fries!
