Salt and Pepper Skillet Fries Recipe
Salt and pepper skillet fries are a quick and easy way to prepare French fries and are sure to please everyone around you.
Tossed in butter, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper, these potato wedges are roasted until browned and crispy.
Have made same using Store bought "Steak Fries" originally instructed 2 B prepared in an oven, however, chose 2 warm in microwave, transfer 2 skillet w/ spritzed olive oil, garlic & black pepper mix & slowly pan fry then added salt 2 taste & freshly diced portabella mushrooms 2-3 min before removing from pan. (Alt., thin 2 med strips of Swiss cheese, or your fav. cheese! casually draped across the now DELIRIOUSLY delicious steak fries!!) ENJOY W/ a Juicy Sirloin Burner w/ the works!!! . . . :)
Wasn't a fan of these overall. Seemed more like greasy home fries. I precut my potatoes and kept in cold water until I was ready to cook them. Dried the potatoes thoroughly and proceeded with the recipe. It definitely does not take 20-25 minutes per batch to fry. I did drain on paper towels and they seemed to crisp more, but then seemed a bit soggy/limp after. Maybe I did something wrong? Sorry, but this simply wasn't for us.
These turned out really great! I used to bake our homemade fries but in the summer when it's hot & I don't want to heat up the oven I was looking for an easy stovetop version. I found this recipe and I like it even better!!
Good basic recipe.
These turned out great and I will definitely be making them again. It was harder than deep fried fries and I had to turn them all individually and keep watch over them to get evenly cooked sides. I had some confusion understanding how to cut the potato into 1/2 inch circles. My husband didn't like these at all but he isn't a french fry fan. I loved them and made 3 potatoes for the 2 of us and it was just right. Thanks Miskyn, these were great!
Made these in our cast iron skillet while camping, nice and tasty and easy for two people. Made again and used red potatoes, seemed to cook faster with red potatoes, although I didn't time it. You do need to keep stirring to evenly cook and I got pretty hot doing that...much better cooking outdoors.
