cooking french fries

Post  brocklesby on 16.01.10 23:40

Cooking french fries/chips can be quite difficult. I have tried oven chips which are basically pre cooked dipped in oil and frozen. You will have to put them on a tray to cook them. best to do this on the top rack on 200c and watch them and check from time to time. they should cook quite quickly.
If doing them from peeled raw potato's chip them, par cook them in the microwave oven, then brush them with oil on the tray and cook them on 200c and keep a watch on them.
These cook very well this way and you are using less fat/oil. Again it is a trial and error curve but eventually you will get it right. If you think of the way you do your roast potato's doing fries is basically the same.

I cooked chips (thicker than french fries) for the first time yesterday and they were gorgeous! This is what I did:
Preheat oven to 250C for 6 minutes
Slice potatoes into chips
Spread out evenly in a 9" non-stick baking pan
Toss with a small amount of virgin olive oil (you can omit this but makes them crisper)
Reduce oven heat to 200 and put pan on high rack
Cook for 10 minutes, turn them over then reduce temperature to 180 and cook 5 minutes more. Perfect!! My next experiment is to try cooking fish at the same time.

Cooking chips

Hi Mo,

Hope you don't mind, I have copied your recipe for chips and put it into the Favourite Recipes section.

That way more people will see your method and its really useful for others. I bumped into someone who uses the forum today - she never posts anything but uses the section on Favourite recipes for ideas and said she doesnt look in this part.

Hope you don't mind me doing that

All the best

Absolutely fine, John, glad if it helps someone. I've only had my Halogen about a month so I'm glad of all the tips I can get too. Best regards, Mo Smile
