TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 5 min./batch YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 medium baking potatoes
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup beer or nonalcoholic beer
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • Sour cream, optional

Directions

  • 1. Scrub and pierce potatoes. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 10-12 minutes or just until tender, turning once.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, whisk the flour, milk, egg, seasoned salt, oil and pepper until smooth. Stir in beer; set aside.
  • 3. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut each into 12 wedges. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Dip potato wedges into batter. Fry in batches for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown, turning occasionally. Drain on paper towels. Serve with sour cream if desired. Yield: 4 dozen.
