  • peanut oil, for frying
  • 2 lb russet potatoes
  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 small can evaporated milk
  • salt
  • black pepper


Heat a deep-fryer or a deep pot no more than half filled with oil to 325°. Peel and slice potatoes to size of your desire and fry them for 2 minutes - this isn't to make them crispy, it is just to blanch them. Drain and cool fries.


Raise temperature of fryer or oil to 360°. Add salt and pepper to the flour and combine. Take fries and dip first into the evaporated milk, shaking off excess, and then into the flour mixture, shaking off excess. Fry for about 5 minutes, until browned.
