Arby's Curly Fries

Another french fry recipe...

I haven't tried these yet, but I plan to!

Arby's Curly Fries

1 3/4 t salt, divided
4 russet potatoes (8 oz each; 2 lbs total), peeled
oil oil spray
2 1/2 T egg substitute
1 1/2 T unbleached or all-purpose flour
2 t paprika
1/4 t cayenne
1/8 t garlic powder
1/8 t onion powder

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add 1 t salt.

Meanwhile, with a twin curl cutter, cut 7 oz of potato curls, about 2 cups. (Cover with water and refrigerate the scraps for another recipe) Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Lightly mist a small nonstick baking sheet with oil spray. Set aside.

transfer the potato curls to the boiling water. cook for exactly 3 m but no longer or they will break. drain in a colander. set aside for about 5 m to cool.

meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, combine the egg substitute, flour, paprika, cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder, and the remaining 3/4 t salt. With a fork, mix until well blended. Add the potatoes. Toss them with your fingers until they are coated with the seasoning mixture. Transfer, allowing any excess seasoning mixture to drip off, to the reserved baking sheet. arrange the potatoes, not touching in a single layer. lightly mist with oil spray. bake for 18-24 m, turning them about halfway through, until crisp and cooked through.

I have been unable to find a curly-fry recipe that doesn't contain flour (since I'm grain intolerrant) but I will attempt this recipe, for it seems the most promising to try using potatoe flower with.

I made these and they came out great. I didn't put the whole amount of cayenne pepper though, just a personal taste thing, but otherwise they were super delicious! :)

do you know if instead of using egg substitute, normal eggs would make them taste the same?

I bought the cutter from Amazon (green color with handle). I used real egg whites however instead of substitute and did not use oil spray. I've to say it came out real good. Thanks.

You can buy a curly fry cutter at WalMart, or on their website, just type Curly Fry Cutter into google.
