Copycat Wendy’s French Fries

These fries that taste just like Wendy’s yield 1 serving (or for one person). If you want more, simply double or triple the recipe. Here’s how to make them:


 2 large russet potatoes

2 cups vegetable oil

sea salt


Pre-heat oil in a deep fryer to 300 degrees F

Fill a medium bowl with water and as you slice the potatoes into long strips (do not slice too thin, but also not too thick – also, leave the skin on), place the strips into the bowl (this helps absorb the starch)

Pat the potato slices dry and set aside until you’ve patted all of the strips dry

Add fries to your fryer and fry for 5 minutes; remove and place on a plate with paper towels to drain

Raise the deep fryer temperature to 350 degrees F and then fry the fries again until they are crispy and light golden brown (careful not to make them too crispy)

Remove from fryer and let drain again, and sprinkle with sea salt. Serve hot.

hi! I'm shannon

I’m a wife, mom of three, doctor, and blogger! In 2018, I decided to turn my mom blog, into a personal finance blog so others could follow along on our journey to pay off over HALF a MILLION dollars in student loan and practice start up debt. I hope you enjoy following along, and maybe even find some inspiration along the way.
