Paired here with my Southern Fried Catfish.

Greetings. I hope everyone is staying safe. I’m so ready for the fall and I am in full swing of putting up fall decor. I’m sharing with you all today my All-Star Homemade French Fries recipe. I think I have cooked these at least once a week since the pandemic and shared on my other channels. This recipe definitely deserves its own spot here on my blog. All of my family members love them when I serve them, so I am happy to be sharing with you all today. A couple of things I have changed over the years with my homemade fries is what I think is the game changer–leaving the skin on, self-rising flour, and flaky sea salt. Leaving the skin and the self-rising flour have taken the crunch factor to another level. I also love to add flaky sea salt as soon as they come out of the oil. You will see later I hand cut my fries everything is that love or just plain crazy. You tell me?

Belle’s Tip: Leave the skin on the potato; Just scrub the skin well with warm water.
