Krazy Kitchen Mom Tips 
  • It's best to work in batches with this recipe because you don't want to crowd the cookie sheet. I use a large cookie sheet and it takes me three batches
  • Cool each batch to room temperature before serving. That way the bread crumbs stay crunchy. 
  • Serve these curly fries with ranch or blue cheese dressing
