All the ingredients needed for this recipe

  • 2 russet potatoes
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Salt and pepper to taste ( you can use salt only)
  • 6 beef sausages

Optional for serving

  • Ketchup
  • Mustard

To make the best French fries

  • Start by slicing the washed and peeled potatoes into 1/2 –inch thin strips.
  • Leave the potato strips in a bowl filled with cold water for at least an hour. It is preferred to leave it overnight.
  • Wash the potato strips twice with cold water. With paper towels, dry each strip well. Into a hot boiling oil at 325 degrees, put your dried strips to fry. Leave the potato strips for 3 minutes or until they are soft, then take them off the oil into paper towels to draw off the extra oil.
  • Return the fries back in the hot oil after raising their temperature to 400 degrees. Fry them for 3-5 minutes until they are crispy and golden brown.
  • Take them off the oil onto some paper towels. Sprinkle some salt while they are still hot.

Beef sausages

  • Start preparing your sausages by cutting them into bite-sized pieces.
  • Transfer the sausage pieces to a hot pan on medium heat.
  • Leave them to cook for 10-15 minutes while occasionally flipping each piece to make sure it’s cooked from all sides.

Assembling the dish

  • Mix in the French fries with the cooked sausages in the pan.
  • Serve the dish with the sauces on the side. Enjoy!
