The Fries at Five Guys: Cut the potatoes then soak them in ice-cold water until the water runs completely clear. This will wash away all the excess starches that could lead to soggy, limp fries. You will have to drain the sink a few times to achieve this, but if you skip this step you will be disappointed with the fries, I guarantee it! Regular Fries: Sea Salt. Cajun Fries: Sea salt, pepper, paprika, chili powder, white pepper, and 'spice.' Fry Russet potatoes in 100% peanut oil.
These beer-battered fries can be kind of a hassle... but they are SO delicious. If you just feel like chillin' in the kitchen for a couple hours and then getting compliments for the next 2 weeks on your cooking skills, you should so definitely try these out!
