Cheeseburger Skillet Fries
Two comfort-food classics come together in one heavenly skillet.
When I am feeling a salty, savory craving, there are few instances that a classic cheeseburger and fries won’t satisfy. There’s something so perfect about the juicy meat paired with cool lettuce, sharp onion, bright tomato and a side of crisp-on-the-outside yet fluffy-on-the-inside French fries that always seems to hit the spot. These skillet fries are a twist on that classic indulgence that comes together as a shareable cheeseburger feast. We really love this recipe at our house; it even got me a much coveted high-five approval…that’s how I know it’s a keeper!
I never deep-fry French fries at home, as I’d much rather bake them in the oven. To me, oven-baked fries turn out just as crisp as take-out variety and I love not having to babysit a huge pot of bubbling oil. To start, I place the cut potatoes in a bowl of cold water for about five minutes to remove the excess starch.
