french fry's

I have to figure out how much to buy for our Fall Festival at our Fire Department. Sams sells 8# bags of crinkle cuts for $5.08. Any idea how many servings 1 bag will serve?

Let's see....8lbs.; 4 hungry cajuns; 8 Texans; 16 good ol' boys from Georgia; 32 people attending your fall festival at about 4oz. each which is about equal to a medium order of fries at you local burger joint OR.....you could check on the bag it'll probably tell you.

One 8 pound bag will give you about 32-4oz servings. As Bruce said. I don't know what kind of vessel you plan to serve them in. Around here at local events I have seen paper cups for snow cones used. That might be the way to go to get your maxim yield. And keep your price down and your profit up.

If'n you can afford a Potato Slicer they are awesome and make great fresh fries from whole potatoes. You can get different cutter Dies for different thickness for fries.

Cut up and cook as many as needed plus it's always cool seeing folks make handcut fries.

The cutters are avaialable at Restuarant Depot and I'm sure online. Not cheap but very nice. I don't have one yet but a boy araound here does and and got me to want one as well.

Good luck
peace

Bill, one of slower but growing trends in food is french fries
with different kinds of sauce. There's a joint somewhere up
north (Pommes Frites?) that serves only french fries (hand cut)
with about 30 different sauces...might be a unique and easy
idea for a festival...

You could offer, ketchup, mayo or any number of aiolies, bbq
sauce, etc.

google Belgian or Belgium french fries, should get more info.

They do that in some areas in the North of England, tends to be a regional specialty, it is a thicker beef / brown gravy. The other that is good but something of an acquired taste is curry sauce, a thinner more watery curry sauce that is either spooned over the French Frys or served in a carton on the side.

is of Canadian origin.

Many, many years ago I ordered FF at a stand in a carnival in Road Island. I asked for ketchup. And they looked everywhere, but couldn't find any. I said "what do you put on them"? Vinegar. It was a Portuguese thing. I still like Ketchup.

From the British Empire to the taste buds of the World, but you have to call them chips not French Fries.

Fish and chips, malt vinegar and salt, Cod or Haddock, and if you really want to try to spoil all your guests, cook your French fries in beef fat. Man oh man that is a flavor blast from the past.

Sir, you have been peeking in my windows again watching me
deep fry in beef tallow .....have you?


Did you know that beef tallow can remain without the need
for refrigeration much longer then pork pork fat/lard provided
it's kept in an airtight vessel.

If I'd been close enough to peek in the window as you cooked your fries, there would have been a knock on the door, and a French fry starved guest begging for some leftovers!

Yes, this is the new trend. True Pomme Frittes are cooked twice as well. I believe that they cook and drain them, then crisp them up again before serving. Alot of work!
