a post about french fries….

Do you love french fries?  Dumb question, right?!!! We all love them…I have basically given them up because they just are way too fattening…so with that in mind I want to share with you my newest discovery…I am at the Lakehouse with Nick and I wanted to try out one of our Christmas presents…here it is…a Hot Air Fryer…have you seen this?  Hot Air…not dumped in oil!!!photo copy

You can make a bunch of things in it…I not only bought it for the fries but also for all the fish Nick catches…I like baked and  broiled fish but there is nothing like a good ol’ Wisconsin fish fry…but again…too many calories in that oil…so I can’t wait to fry fish too…I also got a new french fry cutter…Shown here, UnknownI have 1/4″, 3/8″ and 1/2″ blades….then I had to soak my fresh cut potato fries in water for 30 min…pat them dry…toss in a tablespoon of oil and then place them in the air fryer…here is how they turned out!!!

Let me just say….they taste as good as any restaurant fries from all those good places we eat out at on the road…when I steal a few of Nick’s of coarse….The only downfall I can see is I may need another one so the fish and the fries can be finish at the same time!  I also can’t wait to try homemade onion rings and cheese curds…are you hungry yet?

I purchased all of this from William Sonoma in case you feel the same way I do about the sinking your fries and fish in the old “hot tub”method.  Plus all the gallons of oil we used…No guilt now…Thank You God for making people so smart that they can figure these things out so we all can enjoy  fries now…have a great Saturday…I am going to stitch now while enjoying the sunshine coming through the windows…LBphoto

  6. Those fries look amazing!! What a great invention….hoping the price comes down some. Always looking for ways to enjoy my food while helping my cholesterol numbers. Just recently brought my total down to under 200. Of course, I am not always a good girl when it comes to my diet lol…being good isn’t much fun.

  7. Wow — I cannot wait to here how the fish and cheese turn out ! I wonder how it would do with chicken ?

  8. AHHH, and sweet potato fries, legal potato fries, mushroomsmmmthe possibilities are endless. 🙂 Thank you for the heads up Lisa .

  9. I love it when you share your great finds! I usually agree with you! I received a gift card from WS for Christmas and have not used it. I now know what it will be used for! At the moment I am in Texas sitting at my lake house as well, getting ready for my quilt group to show up tomorrow for a 4 day retreat. We will look forward to seeing you in Houston in October! Take care and you will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.

  10. that is so cool.

  11. Wow! Those look delicious!! Enjoy! Thanks for sharing Lisa, isn’t modern technology is grand. 🙂

  12. Ok Lisa you got me. As I am a William Sonoma snob and I never eat fries because if the oil I am in on this one. Will place my WS order asap. PS great to see you both at AQS show. BTW I did break my 10th rib when I fell during set up. Starting to feel better so now back to sewing.  Hi to Nick.

  25. Thanks for sharing this! After all the snow we had this winter (which equals too much comfort food and not enough exercise)… We need some low-cal options (and soon)… I’ve never met a potato I didn’t like… lol! 😉

  26. I’m a Wisconsin girl living in Iowa… I crave a Wisconsin Fish Fry almost every Friday night… nobody does it like the Badger state!!!
