Leftover French Fries

Leftover french fries.  You’ve had them right?  They come home in your doggie bag next to your leftover sandwich, burger, or beef stew (as pictured above).  They’re cold and soggy and get even more mushy when you reheat them in microwave.  Yuck.  But don’t fret, I’ve got two tips for how to reheat french fries so they’re nice and crispy almost like the night before.


Throw your leftover french fries in a pre-heated skillet and over medium-high heat.  I don’t add any oil because as the fries start to heat up, some of the oil they were originally cooked in comes out.  Be sure to continuously move the fries around your pan so they don’t burn.  After about 6 to 8 minutes they’re nice and crispy and hot!


Another option is to spread your fries out in a single layer on a baking sheet.  Then put them under the broiler.  Again, be sure to stir or shake the fries every few minutes so they don’t burn.

By far, I prefer reheating my fries on the stovetop or under the broiler to the microwave so they get some of their crunch back.  Note: not all french fries are good the first time around (at the restaurant) if you didn’t like them out to dinner, you probably won’t like them reheated (and they’re not worth the calories!).
