  • 2 large yellow potatoes
  • 1-3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons McCormick's Grill Mates - Brown Sugar Bourbon
  • 1-1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • pinch malt vinegar powder, optional
  1. Cut the potatoes into strips lengthwise, about 3/8 inch thick.

  2. Place the potatoes in a large bowl with 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon McCormick's grill mates, Brown sugar and bourbon (nope, this isn't a sponsored post - I just love this stuff!!), 1-1/2 cups water and 1/2 cup bourbon. Let soak for about 2 hours.

  3. Dry the fries on paper towels. While they are drying mix 1/2 cup flour with the remaining salt and grill mates along with a pinch of powdered malt vinegar (optional).

  4. Dredge the potatoes in the flour mixture then fry until they are a golden brown. Drain and dust with a little more seasoning. Eat them now or keep them warm in the oven in a single layer.
