I LOVE all kinds of chips -I tend to sometimes go for the wedges as I read they absorb less fat than the smaller one, so in my mind, wedges are the healthier of the evils!
Although they are not a good food to eat, I believe, because of the trans-fat, I find myself always ordering them at a cafe or restaurant and I cannot see anyone leaving them on their plate, so will eat others as well.
I sometimes make them myself but generally make them in the oven where there is little oil involved.
I once had the battered beer ones that Jennifer mentioned, and they are "out of this world" good.
My preference is the straight cut but love them all. It is a real treat to cook them from scratch (peel and cut myself a real potato) myself at home as I purchased a deep fryer, therefore I cook the chips in olive oil. I do the french system, cook them twice, first time until golden brown, then on high for a short time, this make them crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, YUM!
I like 'normal' chips from F&C shop, with lots of 'normal' salt! These I ONLY have on a cold, rainy day!
If feeling the need for 'salt' after a few days' of sweating in humid weather, will buy Macca's on way home! Large packet of fries!
If I get some grilled fish, from F&C shop, usually buy ONE Potato Scallop, & a Pineapple Fritter! My 'decadence' every now & again!
I don't bake them at home, nor buy the frozen ones. I like the thin ones best though as long as there VERY hot when we buy them as in a takeaway VERY occasionally, as in the night we fly home from a Melbourne visit!
We had some takeaway hot chips last night with the dinner I'd cooked, & they were yummy. They were still crisp after they went cold. Most hot chips I've eaten, go limp when they're cold, so I've had to leave 1/2 of them on. there plate!
