Battered French Fries Recipe @pinch

Whoa... we would have never thought of battering french fries. Now, we're not sure we can go back to another way of frying french fries. The batter has the perfect crispy texture with a light fluffy inside. Seasonings are spot on, but we would suggest adding some sea salt over the fries once they're golden brown. These are delicious homemade french fries. We think this batter would be delicious for frying chicken and fish too! A change from regular fries. These are battered just like when you batter chicken or fish. They are very, very good!
