It is a cruel, cruel joke to let french fries go to waste. But even worse are the limp, soggy fries you’re left with after trying to reheat the leftovers. With this one simple trick you won’t think twice about reheating your favorite cut potatoes. By simply sautéing the leftover fries you can restore them to their crispy gold beauty.
Add a layer of cooking oil to a skillet and heat on medium heat. Once the oil is heated, place leftover fries in the skillet and cook until they’re golden brown and crunchy. They’ll taste like they came right from the deep fryer again. You can even try broiling the fries in the oven or getting creative and placing them in a waffle iron.
