In order to change the well-known flavour of regular French fries, we suggest seasoning them with Vegeta during preparation. Serve these tasty French Fries as a sidedish or a small meal with several dips.

Ingredients

  • 1 kg potatoes
  • 1-2 egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon Vegeta
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 level tablespoon hard flour
  • frying oil

Preparation

  1. 1.
    Cut peeled potatoes into slices 1 cm thick.
  2. 2.
    Slice the potatoes lengthwise into 0.5-1 cm strips.
  3. 3.
    Whisk eggwhites lightly with a fork, add Vegeta and pepper and pour mixture over prepared potatoes.
  4. 4.
    Stir well and sprinkle with flour.
  5. 5.
    Deep fry potatoes until golden yellow.

Serving

Drain French fries on paper towels and serve with relish, ketchup or other condiments.

Advice

Make ordinary French fries even more delicious by sprinkling Vegeta over them while still very hot. If you want especially tasty and crispy fries, coat potatoes with a mixture of eggwhites, pepper, Vegeta and a little bit of flour and fry as usual.
