Best Way To Warm Up Fries?

We went to a great burger place last night and I was so enamored with my burger that I neglected the yummy hand cut fries. In the interest of not wasting food (and particularly yummy fries) I brought them home with me.

What's the best way to warm up leftover fries?? I'd prefer to eat them in their original state, but any suggestions for leftover recipes would be welcome too!

      Yep, that's how I do them too. It is the best way to get back that crispiness I like.

      I like them under the broiler w/ melted mozzarella cheese too. They are also good re-heated and then served on a tossed green salad w/ grilled chicken or steak, creamy dressing, tomatoes and italian peppers in olive oil. Sometimes referred to as a Pittsburgh salad.

    2. Return to the oil for a quick bath to warm and crisp them up.

      1. Toaster oven and sprinkle some salt on them if they need it

        1. 350 oven, on a rimmed baking sheet with red pepper flakes sprinkled on. We frequently bring fries home.

            Oh, and usually about 10 minutes and we flip them over half way through.

          2. Yep, toaster oven. Or regular oven if you're lacking a toaster oven.
