The Recipe For Perfect Home-Made McDonald’s French Fries

The method to perfecting those tasty golden french fries from McDonald’s has been a heavily guarded secret for years, but L.A.’s Comme Ca restaurant owner/chef, David Myers, has the recipe to get perfect McDonald’s-style french fries every time.

Myers shared his recipe and tips on how to get crispy, golden french fries from your own home!

Perfect French Fries (adapted from David Myers’ recipe for “pommes frites”)


6 Idaho russet potatoes
Peanut oil
Sea salt (Myers prefers Sel Gris, a fine light grey French salt)


Peel and square off potato ends. Cut into 3/8″ batons. Soak for two hours changing water after an hour. Dry thoroughly with paper towels. Heat about an inch of oil (or enough to cover potatoes) in a large, heavy bottomed pot to 290 degrees. Blanch potatoes gently for about two minutes until cooked through but still completely pale. Place on a paper-towel lined sheet pan and cool in the refrigerator to stop cooking process.

Re-heat oil to 370 degrees. Cook fries until golden and crispy, about 3 to 4 minutes. If necessary, agitate gently with a spatula to prevent sticking. Remove from pan and toss with salt to taste (Myers doesn’t blot but you can if you want less fat). Serve immediately. Recipe serves 4 to 6.

    So if one of your kids makes those golden McDonald’s fries on their own, does this mean you can sing to them: (The Old Mcdonald’s Tune “You, Your The One”, written by Barry Manilow by the way) ?

    “You, you’re the one; you made those fries on your own!. Good, good for you! You could do it; I had faith in you! You didn’t give up when the fries didn’t come out at first, so you stuck to it and tried again—WAY TO GO (insert name here), we’re all proud of youuu!”–RainbowRay
