  • In a small bowl or pie plate whisk together the milk and egg.
  • In another small bowl or pie plate, whisk together the flour, salt, garlic salt, onion powder, pepper and poultry seasoning, if using.

  • Working in small batches, dip the potatoes first into the flour mixture, then into the milk mixture, and back into the flour again. Transfer to the wire rack.
