Seasoned Homemade French Fries

Introduction: Seasoned Homemade French Fries

 Everyone LOVES french fries. When made perfectly, they are  crunchy on the outside, soft & warm on the inside. What I don't love is all the "junk" added to those delicious fries from fast food places to the frozen kind you buy at the store. I am going to show you how to make those delicious fries from simple ingrediants, most likely already in your kitchen.  Add some homemade dipping sauces, such as,  ketchup and/or homemade BBQ sauce with those amazing home fries and you've got yourself ... " The Best Snack". It's atleast worth a hug, kiss & a" thanks mom", if you've got  kids. And well... that's worth it!
