Old Bay French Fries are a great and simple snack to make. Say when you are binging your favorite shows on Netflix. Which I do often. Most days. Practically daily. Okay I would be lost without Netflix and On Demand. I grew up in the 80’s but now cannot imagine a time when we actually had to be in front of the television to watch our show. Often I fall asleep by 7:00 pm. If I make it to 9:00 pm then I have stayed up longer than ever. I would never be able to see my Shondaland shows crashing out that early. Signs I am getting old. But I digress.
My fiance’s grandmom gave me a crinkle cutter a few months ago and my first thought was “Oooh fun cookies.” I am sure it would still make fun cookies but it wasn’t until I had a hankering for Old Bay French Fries that I realized the cutter was most likely to cut up potatoes for crinkle cut French Fries. That baby was sharp and slid right through the potatoes. She also gave me a non-serrated one I have yet to use. If you don’t have a serrated knife no big deal, you can cut the potatoes with a regular kitchen knife. The only difference is the Old Bay French Fries won’t be crinkle cut fries. That is how I made mine before being gifted the knife I used.
You can dip the Old Bay French Fries in whatever dipping sauce you prefer. A restaurant near me famous for these fries has a creamy cheese sauce to dip the Old Bay French Fries in. I mixed Sriracha with BBQ sauce to create a spicy BBQ dipping sauce for my fries. These Old Bay French Fries have enough flavor that they really don’t require any sort of dipping condiment, but we all know I am Sriracha obsessed. If there is a way to add it to a meal, I am on it.
