If you’ve never made your own hand cut French fries, you’re missing out! Theres nothing better than crispy, salty boardwalk fries from the convenience of your own kitchen. And it’s pretty simple too!!
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F
- Wash and Dry four Idaho potatoes (serves two)
- Slice each potato in half vertically (lengthwise)
- Slice each half vertically into six (or more) 2 cm pieces
- Spread the cut pieces out on a lined baking sheet with salt and olive oil *spacing is key
- Bake for 45 minutes (you can flip them half way if you choose)
If you’re anything like me, once you’ve had duck fat fries, there is nothing else that can compare. In step five, replace the olive oil with duck fat- you can find this in almost any grocery store in the baking aisle with the other oils. Duck fat makes the fries more crisp and savory without making them greasy or oily.
While the duck fat fries bake, you can start to prepare the garlic aioli. When it comes to aioli, I like a the tiniest bit of garlic with a hint of dill. Plus this recipe is super easy to make, you just mix all of the ingredients in a blender!
1 Egg yolk
1 Clove of fresh garlic ( I usually choose the tiniest clove)
1 Tbs. Lemon juice
1 tsp. Mustard or Dijon Mustard
1/2 c. Olive Oil
S & P to taste
Sprinkle fresh Dill
Blend all ingredients together until it forms a thick consistency and refrigerate to set. I like including this aioli recipe in my Sunday meal prep because it tastes amazing with Chicken too.
Level up and add an egg sunny side up- you’re welcome.

It’s been a minute since I lived in Texas and I’m finally getting around to publishing my travel guides. We lived in Austin, which is a pretty centralized location in relation to the other popular cities like Dallas and DFW, Houston and San Antonio. We have visited each of those cities a number of times […]
Although I really miss living in Austin, one of the things I love most about our move to Ohio is how centralized it is in location to a lot of fun things. In Texas- you could drive for 9 hours and still be in Texas. In Ohio, you could drive for two or three hours […]

I love to research bars, restaurants and attractions- but one of the greatest parts about being a local, is finding […]
