Boardwalk Fries!

IMG_9716
I confess I’ve been a tad homesick. I miss Ocean City MD though oddly enough this region of Texas is a lot like home, just cooler and less humid. One of the things that they dont’ have down here on the Gulf Coast are Thrasher Fries. If you have ever been to Ocean City then you know what I’m talking about.

So I whipped up a batch of homemade boardwalk fries and served them with vinegar. The trick was to flash fry them for a few seconds at a really high temperature in peanut oil, let them cool, and then slow fry them again. They aren’ exactly up to Thrasher’s quality but they are probably the closest I’ll get to in Texas.
