Make Homemade French Fries
Rinse and peel the potatoes, and slice them into 1/2-inch thick strips.
Soak the sliced potatoes in cold water for at least an hour (or overnight).
Rinse them twice with cold water and pat dry completely with paper towels.
Heat oil in a deep fryer or a large heavy pan to 325 degrees. Carefully add the potato slices in small batches and fry for about 3 minutes until pale and softened. (Make sure not to overcrowd the pan)
Use a slotted spoon to place them on a plate lined with paper towels.
Increase the temperature to 400 degrees. Carefully add the fries again and fry in batches until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes.
Use the slotted spoon to remove them from oil and place on paper towels.
Sprinkle with salt.
Cook Beef Sausages:
Cut your sausages into bite-sized pieces.
Heat up the skillet on medium heat. Once hot, add the sausage into the skillet with no water, butter, or oil.
Turn them occasionally. Cook for about 10-15 minutes until they cook evenly on all sides. Remove from heat.
Add cooked French fries into the skillet, and mix with the cooked sausages
Drizzle with condiments of your choice such as ketchup and mustard. Serve immediately.
