Chicago Diner Burgers, French Fries

Dinner 10/29

Chicago Diner Burgers

French Fries

The recipe for the burgers is here (via VegTimes, er... "Greens"?)

French Fries

Peel and cut four russet potatoes into 1/2" thick fries, drop them in ice water for 30 minutes. Drain and rinse the potatoes.

In small batches, blanch in 275F peanut oil for 6-7 minutes (they'll get opaque, don't let them brown). Remove and let rest for at least 15 minutes.

Place the potatoes back into the oil in small batches, deep-fried at 375F for 2-3 minutes.

Drain on paper towels and add salt (or smoked paprika) immediately. Serve hot.
