How to Make Curly Fries

By Sondra Crane

Curly fries are fried potatoes with a twist. They might be a kin to French fries, but they don't look like them. Curly fries are one of most sought-out munchies at any fairground. They also can be found at many of the well-known fast-food eateries. They can be enjoyed as a side to a burger or as a meal when dipped into a cheesy sauce.

Make Curly Fries

Step 1

Fill a large pot halfway with water, and add 1 tsp. salt. Turn the burner to high. Turn the burner to low once it boils.

Step 2

Use a twin-curl cutter to cut your potatoes, and immediately place them in cold water to keep them from getting brown.

Step 3

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Step 4

Spray the baking sheet with a light coat of oil and set aside.

Step 5

Put the egg substitute in a large mixing bowl, and stir in the flour, paprika, cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder and the remainder of the salt. Stir it until it is completely mixed.

Step 6

Take the potatoes out of the water and place them on a paper towel. Put them into the seasoning mixture, and using a fork turn them until they are completely coated.

Step 7

Place the seasoned potatoes on the oil-coated baking pan in a single layer. Lightly spray them with the oil and put them into the oven to bake for about 20 minutes. Use a spatula to turn them once.

Step 8

Remove the potatoes when they are crisp. Serve with cheese or dip of your choice.
