All of us love potatoes and who’d have thought that this bulb may be so versatile and yummy. In regards to take-away meals, in most cases you may have option of either potato wedges or French fries. I must admit that both options are quite tasty for me.
Let’s look at the advantages of each one. Potato wedges are the seemingly healthier option because it uses less oil. You only line the base of the baking tray with some sunflower oil and drizzle a small amount of oil over it to give it that wonderful golden brown colour and crispy texture during baking. On the downside, it does take a bit longer to bake the wedges. You can cut them up and put them directly into the oven. This means that it is going to take anything from an hour to bake the wedges properly. This is a lengthy (and now a two-step) process.
Then you have the formidable and tasty French fry. Boil sunflower oil which is a good heat retainer then dunk the potato strips into the frying oil. Depending on how you like it, you can fry it until it’s crispy and golden brown or you can fry it so that it’s a nice soft French fry. I find the softer version of the French fry to be quite delectable, especially once you drizzle some salt and vinegar over it. However, once you strain the French fries, set them in a bowl that is lined with a disposable kitchen towel. This will drain much of the oil. On the upside, the skillet for French fries can be as quick as five minutes. So if you are in hurry, this is the best way to go.
Now that I’ve looked in the arguments of both sides, I must conclude this for a draw. I find that certain occasions may call for potato wedges and others for French fries, depending on both your mood and your time schedule. Each side dish has its benefits and drawbacks. Provided that you find a fantastic balance both options will be tasty additions to your meal. Enjoy your dish.
