For a few weeks now, we have had some fingerling potatoes on our counter. I was anxious to use them and decided to make some homemade fries. After gathering some ideas online, I pulled from a few sources and came up with the following:
Battered Garlic Fries
2 pounds potatoes, unpeeled and sliced as fries
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup water
2 cups vegetable oil
Place sliced potatoes in ice water, dry thoroughly. Mix all ingredients (except oil) in a bowl. Place potatoes in bowl with batter, mix by hand to coat all potatoes. Drop potatoes one by one in boiling oil. When golden brown, place on plate layered with paper towels.

When I first made this, I thought that they might be weird. They were actually really good. Ruby sure loved helping mix the potatoes and the batter. It was messy, fun and a great side dish. After the fries, I attempted to make some battered grean beans. That was a failure.
