REHEATING FRENCH FRIES - "FRENCH FRY REVIVAL"
How to Reheat French Fries
While it may be hard to believe, there is actually a debate among food-lovers about whether fries reheated in the oven or fries reheated on the stove are better. wikiHow is here to help you decide and to suggest, why not try both methods? Scroll down to Step 1 to begin your journey through the world of reheated french fries.
Reheating in the Oven
Pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit (232°C).
Cover an oven-safe rectangular metal tray with tin foil.Tin foil is also known as aluminium foil. Covering your baking sheet with tin foil will ensure that your fries don’t stick to the sheet when they are reheating and it makes cleanup much easier.
Put your french fries on the baking sheet.Make sure that you spread the fries so that they are one layer deep with none overlapping. If the fries overlap while reheating, they will fuse together.
- You can add a bit of extra salt or some other seasonings to your fries to enhance their flavor.
When the oven is done preheating, place the baking sheet with the french fries inside the oven.
- If you have a toaster oven that can reach 450°F (232°C), feel free to use that instead. Just make sure you use the baking sheet or the pan that is supposed to go in the toaster oven.
Cook the french fries for two to three minutes.Open the oven and jostle the fries around from time to time. Take the fries out when they are golden brown, heated, and crispy.
Let your fries cool for about a minute, then enjoy!
Reheating on the Stove
Use a medium sized pan or a cast iron skillet.If you have one, use a pan with a heavy bottom.—This will give the fries the extra crisp that you’re after.
Put a tablespoon or so of oil into the pan.Use an oil with a high smoke point, like canola oil or grapeseed.
Heat the pan on medium-high.The oil should just be beginning to smoke when you add your leftover fries to the pan.
Add the fries and stir them well so that they are evenly coated in the oil.Coating them will ensure that they get crisp without burning.
Stir the fries often as they cook.This will keep them from sticking to the pan and burning.
- Use a spatula to detach any fries that do become stuck to the pan.
Cook the fries for three to five minutes.The length of time will depend on how thick your fries are cut. When the fries take on a crispy texture and golden brown color, they are done.
Remove excess oil by placing the fries on a paper towel-covered plate covered and patting dry.Serve them up and enjoy!
