How to cook french fries

There are several ways to cook frozen French fries, depending on your preferences and available kitchen equipment. Here are some common methods:

  1. Oven-Baking: Preheat your oven to the recommended temperature (usually around 425°F/220°C). Spread the frozen fries in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Bake for 15-20 minutes, flipping them halfway through, until they turn crispy and golden brown.

  2. Deep-Frying: Preheat your deep fryer or a large pot of oil to 350-375°F (175-190°C). Carefully add the frozen fries to the hot oil and fry for 2-3 minutes until they're golden and crispy. Remove them from the oil using a slotted spoon or tongs, and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.

  3. Air Frying: Preheat your air fryer to the recommended temperature (around 400°F/200°C). Place the frozen fries in the air fryer basket in a single layer. Cook for 15-20 minutes, shaking the basket or flipping the fries halfway through, until they are crispy and cooked to your liking.

  4. Pan-Frying: Heat a non-stick skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat. Add a small amount of oil (vegetable or olive oil) to the pan and spread it evenly. Place the frozen fries in the pan and cook for about 8-10 minutes, flipping them occasionally, until they become crispy and golden.

  5. Grilling: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Place a grill basket or foil packet on the grill grates, and add the frozen fries to it in a single layer. Grill for about 10-15 minutes, tossing them occasionally, until they are crispy and cooked through.
