Sunday Brunch: Jeffrey Steingarten's Easy Frites

This is a ridiculously easy french fry recipe my friend Jeffrey Steingarten published in his wonderful book The Man Who Ate Everything. I have made it many, many times with absolutely splendid results. Jeffrey suggests serving these fries with dijon mustard, but ketchup will do just fine. If you want to try something different, tartar sauce also makes a superb french fry dipping sauce. I know some serious eaters might be asking "french fries for brunch?" My response: Why not?

French fries are good any time. If you want to make them a little more brunchy, serve them with Johnny Apple's crazy creamy, crazy good scrambled eggs.
