Crispy Cube Shaped French Fries

Hello 🙂  and how was everyone’s weekend?  I do hope that everyone had a lovely one 🙂  Let’s talk  a bit about French Fries, the Dutch do love their fries, and toppings, from Mayo to Curry to well let’s say they even have a Peanut Butter type of sauce which I tried when I first came here and really was not a fan of it.  The Dutch deep fry the potatoes twice, making them have an even crispier texture than just frying them the way do at home.  The last time I actually bought fries from a stand was about 2 years ago..a very very long time. 🙂

This weekend’s meal plan had to be very very simple, just a couple of salads, along with omelettes and fries. We were painting one of the hallway’s and it took more time than expected and so cooking needed to be simple. I sometimes make different shapes when making French Fries because I just like trying out new things. Some of the shapes are  round, moon, donut shaped. 🙂  Yep, donut shaped with a hole in the middle.  🙂

I made just a small portion for my husband because I did my cheating from my diet on Friday. The only thing I added to these fries were Oregano and Salt, this gave the fries a more Greek traditional taste, rather than topping them off with Mayo or Ketchup.  But when the fries were ready and I served them I saw that he separated the fries in half, topping the other have with Mayo and Ketchup!!! hahahaha  There is also one more thing about these fries that I would like to mention, they could not get any crispier!!!!



  • 5 Potatoes cubed
  • 2 cups Vegetable Oil
  • 1 cup Olive Oil optional
  • Oregano
  • Salt
  • Water


  1. Wash and drain potatoes thoroughly. Cut into cubes and place them in a large sauté pan along with salted water. (Potatoes should be covered with wateBoil potatoes and drain.
  2. In the same sauté pan add in Vegetable oil along with the Olive Oil, and heat from medium to high.
  3. Add in potatoes and fry.
  4. These delicious crunchy little french fries taste delicious with just a sprinkle of Oregano and Salt, but you could always add your favorite toppings.

    Yum! French fries are my weakness. I read about the Dutch's way of deep frying the potatoes twice. I used to top my fries with oregano and salt, now I top it with pepper sauce and garlic sauce. 😋
