Hollywood Fries French Frying Potatoes
A Hollywood Fries potato is a denser potato used specifically for frying. It will cook without absorbing much oil making perfect, non-greasy French fries. A Hollywood Fry is a “healthier” fry because we recommend frying with Peanut or Grapeseed oil. Both can handle high heat without smoking, and are low in saturated fat and high in heart-healthy poly- and monoun-saturated fats. A Hollywood Fries potato also cooks slightly faster than a standard Russet potato.
