Flavorful Crispy Potato Sticks

These crispy potato sticks are a tasty snack made from grated potatoes mixed with bits of red pepper, fresh mint, parsley, and cheddar cheese. After mixing, we shape them into sticks, coat them with starch, and then fry them until they’re golden and crunchy. They’re perfect for munching on their own or dipping into your favorite sauce. It’s a fun and delicious way to enjoy potatoes with a cheesy, herby twist!

  1. Prepare the Potatoes:
    • Begin by washing the potatoes thoroughly. Boil them until they’re just tender, then let them cool. Once cooled, grate them into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add Flavor and Texture:
    • Finely dice the red bell pepper and chop the mint and parsley. Add these to the grated potatoes for a burst of color and freshness.
  3. Cheese and Season:
    • Grate the cheddar cheese and incorporate it into the potato mixture. Sprinkle in the starch and salt, then mix everything together until the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  4. Form the Sticks:
    • Take small portions of the mixture and shape them into sticks. If the mixture is too sticky, you can dust your hands with a bit of starch to make the shaping easier.
  5. Dust with Starch:
    • Lightly roll each potato stick in additional starch. This step ensures that your potato sticks will have a crispy exterior once fried.
  6. Fry to Perfection:
    • Heat a generous amount of vegetable oil in a deep pan over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, fry the potato sticks in batches. Fry them until they’re golden and crispy, turning them occasionally for even cooking.
  7. Serve Hot:
    • Drain the crispy potato sticks on paper towels to remove excess oil. Serve them hot as a delightful snack or a side dish, perfect for dipping in your favorite sauce.

Enjoy your homemade crispy potato sticks, a perfect combination of cheesy goodness and fresh herbs wrapped in a crispy coating!
