For decades, we’ve been arguing about which fast food place makes the best fries. The general consensus is that KFC’s chips are not even in the running (soz, Colonel – your chicken’s ace though) but McDonald’s and Burger King fries have been pitted against each other since the beginning of time. Then Five Guys and Shake Shack arrived with their fries and turned everything on its head.
Anyway, here’s an idea… what if you could make homemade chips that were even better than any of the fries sold at these places? You might not believe that’s possible, but this chef on TikTok swears his homemade oven chips are a tastier and healthier version of takeaway fries – and in particular, McDonald’s fries.
Morgan starts by peeling potatoes and cutting them into fries. He then pops them in a saucepan with cold water and salt, and parboils them for just two minutes. Any more than that and they’ll go all mushy.
He then places the fries in an oven tray with olive oil and whatever herbs and spices he fancies – the world’s your oyster, guys. Go wild! Then the chips simply need to go into an oven that’s been pre-heated to 200°C for 25 minutes!
Try these yourself at home and tell us they’re not the tastiest chips you’ve ever had in your whole damn life.
