  • 6 large red potatoes, skins on
  • oil, for frying
  • 1 large sweet onion
  • salt
  • pepper


Using a large pot, boil potatoes with skins on until almost done. Allow to cool, and cut potatoes into long strips, approximately 1/4 to 1/2 inch wide and thick. In a large pot or fryer, heat oil to 350°. Par fry the potatoes for 5 to 6 minutes. Potatoes should be limp. Remove potatoes and place onto paper towels and allow to drain. Let sit for one to two hours at room temperature.


Cut onions into 1/2 inch wedges. Just before serving time, place potatoes and onions into oil heated to 375° for 3 to 5 minutes, or until brown. Remove fries from oil, drain on paper towel, and while still hot, season with salt and pepper.
