  • Red potatoes: HELP PLEASE

    I have some red potatoes and I am just wondering if I can use them to make french fries?? I normally use russets. I have never used the red ones before.

    THEY MAY NOT CRISP UP LIKE REGULAR FRIES, RED POTATOES ARE SOFTER, I'VE OVEN BAKED FRIES WITH THEM, TASTED GOOD, BUT NOT AS CRISPY.

    I DID THESE THIS WEEKEND WITH MY RED POTATOES, THEY WERE REALY GOOD. I PROBABLY () PUT A LITTLE MORE OLIVE OIL ON THEM THAN CALLED FOR, BUT WE REALLY ENJOYED THEM.

      Nu, I love that recipe, but I am doing TLT's tonight and I thought I would surprise DH with some fries because I NEVER do that! *L*

      I am going to make that recipe this weekend when we do steak. I am going to use fresh chives and dollops some sour cream on a few of them afterwards!

          I actually prefer using the red potatoes over a russet. Quarter them and deep fry them. They may not be crispy, but they sure are good! PS... Be sure & leave the skins on!

            My mother used to boil the red potatoes until they were soft enough, peel them and then she would fry them in butter with salt and pepper. We really liked them that way.

              I ruined them

              I decided to just wash them and slice them like regular fries. I then sprayed a cookie sheet with olive oil Pam. Then I just spread them out over the sheet and sprayed them lightly with more olive oil and sprinkled some sea salt because I was out of kosher salt. They were baking fine and my brother and SIL stopped by and we got to talking, and I BURNED them to a crisp! We just had our TLT's and dumped the fries. I didn't need them anyway!!!!

              I do love all the recipes and will definitely use them. Thanks everyone

                Oh Cindy, I am sorry, I have to laugh, because that is something I would do. When my son was little I would make grilled cheese sandwiches, and while cooking, I would read a magazine, paperback, etc. And of course I would usually burn the sandwich. The joke to this day is, that when the smoke alarm goes off, the sandwich is done, well done. LOL

                      Cindy , try making roasted fingerling potatoes, they are so good, I think you would like them. I use the red potatoes for roasted potatoes and for potato salad.

                        Michael prefers mashed potatoes made from red potatoes. That is why I had them, but I just bought a few too many. I love to dice red potatoes and sprinkle hidden valley ranch dressing powder over them and then roast them. They are soooooo good.

                        I don't think I have ever had fingerling potatoes????

                          I get the fingerling potatoes at my regular grocery store, they are located with all the other potatoes. They taste similar to yukon gold potatoes, so good.

                            I just googled them. I thought they looked like little fingers. I will have to see if I can find them around here.
