Tip: Why Double Fry?

When double-frying french fries, the first fry breaks down the starchy structure of the potato, and the second fry makes them super crispy.


Heat oil in a deep fryer or large pot no more than two-thirds full to 340°. Line a baking sheet with paper towels.

Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat; stir in hot sauce and honey and keep warm.

Fry potatoes in two batches, 6 minutes each; transfer to prepared baking sheet to cool, 10–15 minutes. Increase deep fryer heat to 375°.

Fry potatoes in two batches until golden brown, 57 minutes each. Transfer hot sauce mixture to a large bowl.

Toss potatoes with hot sauce mixture; stir in Gorgonzola and season with salt and pepper.


The secrets to restaurant-quality, crispy fries are double frying, and not overcrowding the fryer.


Toss the fries with the sauce while they’re hot from the fryer. The heat will help them absorb the flavors.
