We all love potatoes and who would have believed that this bulb may be so versatile and yummy. When it comes to take-away meals, typically you may have option of either potato wedges or French fries. I must admit that both options are quite tasty for me.
Let us look at the advantages of each one. Potato wedges are the apparently healthier option because it uses less oil. You merely line the base of the baking tray with some sunflower oil and drizzle a little bit of oil on it to give it that lovely golden brown colour and crispy texture during baking. On the downside, it will take a little longer to bake the wedges. You could cut them up and put them directly into the oven. This means it is going to take anything from an hour to bake the wedges properly. As an alternative, you can boil the wedges the first then place them in the baking tray and into the oven. This is a lengthy (and a two-step) process.
Then you’ve got the formidable and tasty French fry. You can slice your French fries into thin strips if you like or thicker chunkier strips. Boil sunflower oil which is a fantastic heat retainer then dip the potato strips to the skillet. Based on how you like it, you can fry it until it is crispy and golden brown or you can fry it so that it’s a great soft French fry. I find the milder version of the French fry to be quite delectable, especially once you drizzle some salt and vinegar over it. The disadvantage to French fries is the abundant use of oil. However, as soon as you strain the French fries, place them in a bowl that is lined with a disposable kitchen towel. This will drain a lot of the oil. On the upside, the frying time for French fries can be as quick as five minutes. So if you are in hurry, this is the way to go.
Now that I’ve looked in the arguments of both sides, I must conclude this to be a draw. I find that certain events may call for potato wedges and others for French fries, based on both your mood and your time schedule. Each side dish has its own benefits and drawbacks. Provided that you find a good balance both options will be tasty additions to your meal. Enjoy your side dish.
