5. When all sides are crispy, remove the fries onto a paper towel to remove excess grease.Enjoy!

We don’t even use ketchup, not even our toddler! For an extra treat, top with bacon pieces and sliced green onion! If you are around the Columbia area be sure to check out Sullivan Farms for some high-quality lard!
