I do love french fries in pretty much any way, shape or form, but if I have to pick a favorite version (with the possible exception of cheese fries, and I’m working on a recipe for that right this minute) I would pick skinny, crispy little fries. The kind where you can pop about 10 in your mouth all at once. Crispy and crunchy and with just a dusting of salt and pepper.
And little did I know that I had the key to making my favorite fries right here in my own kitchen. Nope, not the mandoline, although that does make nice skinny fries, and that’s what I used for my steak frites recipe.
Nope, the answer was...my zoodler!
I got this baby during one of my rounds of the Whole 30, and it made beautiful zucchini noodles and cucumber noodles. And then one day it hit me – I thought maybe it could make not just skinny fries, but CURLY spiral fries! So I grabbed a couple of potatoes, scrubbed them up good and spiralized them.
My spiralizer basically works like the world’s biggest pencil sharpener – you simply twist the potato around inside one end and spiral fries come out the side. IT. IS MAGICAL. You can find it by clicking on the image above, or (shameless promotion here) you can find it in my new little Recommended Items Shop on my home page.

Once I had a pile of fries, I simply heated up some canola oil in my Dutch oven, lowered the fries in with a slotted spoon, fried them up for a few minutes until they were golden, and drained them on some paper towels. A sprinkle of salt and pepper, and all that was left to do was keep the Southern husband from eating all of them before they got to the table.
Happiness is a plate of warm crispy spiral fries, my friends!Print
