    I like fries cut into thick wedges. I just looked at a RR site, and
    for steak fries she wants them cut into 'thin' strips.
    Although she does them in the oven...

    Jill,

    We like the steak fries!

    They are meatier, stay hotter longer and don't go limp as fast.

    Best,

    I like quarter fries. Those RR mentioned aren't exactly "thin". Quartered
    baking potatoes rubbed with olive oil and sprinkled with dried thyme and
    oregano and a little seasoned salt, roasted like baked potatoes, are pretty
    terrific. I used to eat at a place that battered and fried them. But
    baking is just as good. I also bake skinny fries

    I might just make Saratoga chips. But when I've made fries at home, I
    set the slicer to about a quarter inch, then I cut by eye to about a
    1/4-3/8.

    I don't deep fry either. At Publix I buy the store brand "restaurant style"
    shoestring fries They bake up nice and crispy.

    Quarter fries are quarted baking potatoes. Cut lengthwise and brushed with
    olive oil and seasoned, then baked. They're crispy on the ouside and nicely
    tender on the inside.

    Nice, but the fries should have been hot enough to melt the cheese

    Ripple Cut, chunks... of course I'd never bother to french fry two
    measly spuds... before heating oil gotta be two pounds minimum.

    Roughly, yes. Hot oven, 45 minutes to an hour for quartered baking potato
    fries.

    Shoestring, AKA fast food fries. I detest skinny fries, they're fat
    magnets that taste nothing like spuds. Unless you've actually peeled
    a spud and fried it yourself you haven't eaten a real fry in 30 years,
    they're all *formed* frys. Every frozen fry at the stupidmarket is a
    formed fry. In most all cases if the restaurant's fries don't have
    skin they're mystery fries.
    My fry cutter is older then you:

    Yeah, I get it. It's a hard cheese. Doesn't matter. I generally don't put
    cheese on french fries.
