Happy Thursday to ya! I hope everyone has been having a great week. Mine has been full of online shopping, Christmas decorating, and eating. Lots of eating. I feel it's that time of year where you can indulge and not feel bad about it. YOLO people!
The smoke detector was going off, the kitchen was full of black smoke and my husband was running around trying to figure out who had let off the smoke bomb in our house. There was no bomb. I had just burnt the non-existent feathers off the chicken. Ever since then I've been afraid to try deep frying. So when I decided to try this recipe I was actually nervous about it. But I put on my big girl pants, rolled up my sleeves and got to frying. This was so easy and so delicious. Here's what you'll need:
4 potatoes, peeled
About 1/2 Cup vegetable oil
1 Cup Mexican Cheese
1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese
1 Cup milk
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp corn starch
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp pepper
For potatoes: Cut potatoes into thin 1/2 inch strips. Heat oil and place potato pieces on a paper towel to drain off the extra water. Add two potatoes to the boiling oil and cook until they turn golden brown. You know the oil is ready when you put a drop of water in it and it spatters. Transfer to another paper towel to allow extra grease to fall off and put in the remaining potatoes. Sprinkle with salt. If you have a big enough pan to do them all together, go for it. Mine wasn't big enough.
For sauce: Combine all ingredients for the cheese together in a pot on medium heat. Using a whisk, stir ingredients continually until it's all melted together. Add on top of fries. Dive in and enjoy!
When your salty craving starts calling what do you go for? What's your favorite thing to deep fry? I'm ready to try my hand at frying again. Would love ideas!
Thanks for stopping by!
