Curly Fry Recipe | How to Make Curly Fries

How to Make Curly Fries: I was being lazy one evening, and mostly busy, thus didn’t feel particularly like peeling potatoes. As I’m washing them, I look up and spot my sturdy hand cranked apple peeler/corer/slicer on the wall… hmmm… what the heck… so I plop one of those suckers on and voila! Curly fry heavenliness! We didn’t want all the fat of deep frying (or the mess), therefore, we baked them, just like we do our wedge fries.

This is our recipe…
