Curly Fries

My kids love homemade curly fries. From helping to make them to eating them.

Last year for Christmas my husband bought me one of these.

At first I thought it would be something neat to try once then put it in the closet. But because my kids like it so much, we use it quite often.

This particular one not only does potatoes but apples as well. You can remove the skin at the same time that you are slicing the potato or apple into curly pieces. Or leave the skin on, as I do.

We simply cut up a bunch of potatoes, sprinkle with olive oil and then coat with garlic salt, pepper and a little hot salt. I then bake at 450 degrees for about 30 minutes. They turn out so good. My kids will eat every one, eating helping after helping until they are all gone.

I have also used this to make homemade apple crisp. But instead of leaving the apples in long strands, I cut up the strands and have nice thin slices.

  1. I just ordered the same apple/potato peeler from Amazon just so I can make these curly fries. I think my kids will LOVE them. Thanks for sharing.
