Copycat Five Guys Fries

Who doesn’t love a batch of hot, crunchy, tasty fries? Not the kind that are deep-fried just once. The ones that have been sitting under a heat lamp for the better part of a day. No! We want fries hot out of the fryer, the ones that have been twice-fried. Perfectly delicious. Like these copycat Five Guys Fries!

Copycat Five Guys Fries

I made sure that all of my fries were the same size so that I got nice consistent cooking. You also need to be sure that the fries cool completely between the first and second frying. Then you’ll end up with crazy-good copycat Five Guys fries (that go perfectly with my copycat White Castle burgers!).

I also make a killer copycat of McDonald’s French fries.

  • Let fries cool to room temperature, at least 10 minutes.
  • Working in batches, add the fries back to the still hot oil and fry until they reach the desired color and crunch. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate and sprinkle with salt.
