    How do you like your french fries? Small and crispy or thick & meaty? Skins on or off?

    It's election season. With all the weighty questions burdening us, I liked Avianvoice's question about mayo, mustard & ketchup. A small controversy in our house is over little crispy french fries (her) or hunky steak fries (me). So what is your favorite? Wafflle fries? Ohhh that sounds political!

    Definitely thin and oh so crispy!  What is better than that crunch in your mouth when the hot fresh fries almost burn the roof of you mouth?  I know I'm going to get lots of flack about this but I love McDonald's ff the best.

    I'll take a plate of French Fries over a piece of chocolate cake any day of the week and twice on Sundays.  Wavy cut, golden on the outside, and well-salted.

    I love the new Wendy's fries. They are a little meaty and crispy with skins on.

    I like thin french fries that are golden brown but not crispy.  Some ketchup on the side and salted and I'm in heaven.

    I prefer Belgian french fries, medium crispy with a hint of mayo.

    But best of all are genuine authentic British chips from a fish and chip shop. Not too greasy, nice and thick, sprinkling of salt and pepper, dipped into ketchup or brown sauce. Skins off, piping hot. The best.

    Any way I can get them, lol. I don't eat fries very often, anymore. So when I get to, I'll take them any way I can. But I guess it depends on my mood. Sometimes I like crinkle fries, sometimes, steak fries, sometimes, shoestring fries. I guess fries would be my guilty pleasure.

    I really enjoy those hot thin salty french fries from McDonald's. Keep on hubbing  smile

    thick, skin on, and NOT deep fried. Boil & then grill until they start to brown.

    I like 'em Hawaiian-sized--big, meaty, and juicy! With or without a mixture of mayo and ketchup. With skins on...just to rationalize some health benefits for an otherwise  cardiovascular nightmare. : )

    I make homemade fries with Huayro potatoes, a starchy potato popular here in Peru. We slice them thin (skins intact), soak in cold water for an hour or two, rinse, pat dry and fry until nice and crispy. They're delicious simply sprinkled with sea salt or, if you want to get fancy, mince garlic and parsley and sprinkle over hot fries. There's nothing like homemade!
