As soon as I realized I could make an entire plate of fries for dinner, my whole life changed.

Okay, I’m being dramatic. But recently I’ve become obsessed with homemade fries. They’re cheap, healthy(ish), and pretty hard to f*** up. But the best part about making fries at home is they’re customizable. Check out these versions and welcome to your new favorite snack.
