How to Make McDonald's French Fries Recipe at Home | Get the Dish

  • Published on Apr 2, 2015
  • While everyone might have their own thoughts on the rest of the menu, one thing we can all agree on is that McDonald's french fries reign supreme when it comes to eating some perfectly crispy and flavorful potatoes. But what makes them so good? Well thanks to MythBuster's Grant Imahara we learned a little bit about the process and then took those tools to engineer the best french fry we could make at home.

    The reason for all of the flavors at the last is because they used to cook them in beef tallow no other oil was used and that gave them the flavor now they use vegetable oil and have to add all of the flavors as best they can to them! They are still not as good as they used to be years ago! LOL you have never had the original you are way to young!!!!

    McDonald’s fries are supposed to be golden, those are more on the brown side. You over fried them the second time. Should’ve done it for 2 and a half minutes...maybe 3.
