    Surprisingly they're not as cheap as they used to be. With Mcdonalds reputation you think you could go grab a pile of grease sticks for a buck something. More like 3.

    Most fries are pretty decent
    I'm not that picky about them

    Potatoes and salt ?
    Check
    I'm good
    Ketchup on the side ?
    OK

    Yes, most fries are good (grease and tatters, hard to go wrong), but McD's fries are........ a cut above {removes sun glasses} YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAH....

    There is a big difference. I fucking love McDonald's fries. Anything else is just a fried potato.

    I read somewhere they put sugar on them for the brown color, otherwise they cook them so fast they would stay white.

    they have to make up for selling double cheeseburgers and all sizes of drinks for a buck

    not that it costs anywhere close to that to make but the profit loss it becomes

    Got a Chic-Fil-A waffle fry recipe?

    Also, Arby's sells frozen curly fries at the grocery store. They taste nearly identical, albeit a bit more greasy.

    Yep, powdered sugar. They changed from beef tallow and other meat based frying stuff and to vegetable and seed oils. You don't put a little sugar on fries cooked like that and they'll turn out white.

    Edit: Mickey D's lied in the 1980s about going vegetarian. They used the beef tallow for another 20 years world wide until 2002 or 2003 I think. Could you think of a country that would piss off?
    India! Every tasty, golden delicious tater-stick was a mouthful of blasphemy.

    McDonalds and every other fast food chain put sugar in everything possible. Fries, buns, you name it. That being said, I have never craved McD's fries enough to make them myself. Now Checkers (Rally's I think for you non eastern folk) seasoned fries, Im in.

    I hate french fries... I always go with onion rings when given an option.

    This thread inspired me...

    So, I decided to fire up the turkey fryer once more before I pack it away and made a big batch of fries. They are fucking amazing. Because I had already used the oil to fry two turkeys creole-style, there was a shitload of seasoning and stuff in the oil.

    Fries from a BBQ joint are my favorite. Doesn't matter which one. they all use the same frozen fries here, but they are always cooked just right regardless of where you get them.
