Wingstop Fries Recipe: Do It Yourself!

One of the best things about doing your own versions of popular food items is that you can do it whenever you want to. Using just the ingredients that you want and have in your pantry, you can create this masterpiece on your own. Fortunately, this Wingstop fries recipe is pretty easy and straightforward. The secret behind the success of these fries? Sweetness.

With this in mind, it’s easy to deduce that the secret ingredient is sugar. So go on and try this recipe at home.

Ingredients:
  • 4 potatoes, sliced into fries
  • Seasoned salt
  • Granulated sugar
  • Vegetable oil
Instructions:

1. Heat up some oil in your deep fryer. Set the deep fryer to 320 degrees. If you don’t have one, a simple frying pan or wok that’s deep enough to hold and submerge your fries will do.

2. Once the potatoes are sliced and ready, throw them into the fryer basket or pan. Make sure the fries are not overcrowded. Leave enough room for them to cook through without sticking to each other.

3. Cook until the fries are golden brown. This should only take about 3-4 minutes.

4. When they are cooked, place them on a dish or plate that is lined up with paper towels. These will help soak up any excess grease. Alternatively, you can place the fries on a colander or strainer to let the excess oil drip away.

5. Next, season your fries with seasoned salt first. Follow this with a pinch of sugar.

Tips:
  • To avoid browning or bruising of your potatoes while you are slicing them, you can submerge them in a bowl of cold water (or water with some ice cubes). Keep them there until you are done slicing and ready to proceed with cooking.
  • You can use any type of potatoes that you prefer. You can keep the skin or peel it off - it’s all a matter of personal preference.
  • A pinch of sugar can be sufficient for this recipe, but as always, you can modify the amount of sugar or salt as you like. Make it saltier or sweeter if you prefer. You are the boss of your own kitchen!

Bonus Recipes: Wingstop Wings!

While we’re on a Wingstop vibe, let’s continue with a couple more of its most famous offerings. These are great for simple dinners and lunches, but can also entertain a crowd if you’re having people over your house. Pair these with your Wingstop fries from the recipe mentioned above, and you’re good to go!

For these recipes, it’s best to use a deep fryer that is big enough to hold all the wings that you want to cook. Otherwise, you’ll have to do separate batches to ensure each wing is cooked perfectly. While deep fryers are convenient, conventional frying pans or woks can do the job, too. For these dishes, you’ll need to prepare ample amounts of vegetable or canola oil to fry the wings.
