The best fries I ever had were from Ollie's Trolley in Louisville, KY, and from a little hamburger stand in Crailsheim, Germany (best burger ever there as well!). G.D. Ritzy's had good fries as well, and I liked them because I like the thin shoestring type and not the thicker ones or crinkle cut.
A friend of mine gave me the "secret recipe" for Ollies Trolly french fry spice about 20 years ago.
I bet about now you are thinking,"so lets have it already".
I didn't use it much at the time(although it is super-fantastic on fries)because there was some controversy about the safety MSG at the time.I believe now MSG is known to be safe,and it is the "secret ingredient" in Ollies Trolly fries.
Enough rambling so here it is...
EQUAL parts of chile powder,salt,and MSG.
Don't skimp on the MSG,EQUAL parts.
So simple but so good,try it,you will like it!
Deep fry some taters(I fresh cut),drain and then dust VERY HEAVY with this spice mixture,and you have it,just like Ollies Trolly fries.
Try it and let me know what you think !
One of my best kept secrets,dont spread it around.
