Flemish Frites - Belgian Fries with Andalouse Sauce
Prepare the sauce the night before. It takes time for the flavors to meld. Allow the sauce to come to room temperature for serving.
Fries can be cut and rinsed hours ahead of time and left in a bowl of cold water for use later in the day. Once fries have received their first fry they can sit for an hour at room temperature. This works well when trying to time dinner preparations!
If your fryer doesn't have a temperature selector be sure to use a thermometer. Small batches are key, this allows the oil to keep a more even temperature. You can prepare the fries in a frying pan, just be sure to turn the potatoes and test the temperature.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
