How to preheat fries


You might be used to heating them up on microwave but that might turn them soggy of overcooked. The point to make them hot, a microwave might steam cook them or rather cook them all over again since it heats from the inside out.

How to preheat your fries. You can do it in 2 ways. Either saute them on a frying pan or preheat in a preheated oven. Note this, do not overcrowd your fries while heating.

On a frying pan, add about 2 tsp for a cup of fries. Deep frying them will make them soak unnecessary oil you rather don't need.

Preheat a large skillet over medium heat, add your oil to heat up until it shimmers. Start with one layer of fries, heat for a minute then stir with a spatula. Leave for about 30 seconds, season then eat while still hot. Preheat fries in batches, this can only work when you do single layers of fries at a time.

With an oven, same procedure, one single layer at a time. But first, preheat oven to 450°, this will ensure its crispy. Use a strong baking sheet. You can oil it or not. Purely as you desire. Do not preheat baking pan with the oven. This should take you just a few mins unless you are doing a big batch. Keep checking until you get to the level of cripsiness you want.

That is it, no more cold undesirable fries for you:)
