    Thank you so much for posting this! I believe you may have made my Hubby’s day. We hate leftover fries because they are so soggy and nasty.

    Thanks for sharing, and the lesson hands on…I presume you could do the same with sweet potato fries too! Always enjoy learning something new…

    This is wonderful. And thank you for sharing this w/ us. However what about fries that’s have sauce on them already. Is it safe to use this method also?

      Hi Briyona – I have not tried this method with sauce on the fries but let me know if you end up trying it yourself. Thanks for your comment!

    ALL HAIL THIS RECIPE. I was super skeptical but still, i threw my day old 5 guys fries into a pan and started frying. THEY ARE ALMOST BETTER THAN THEY WERE YESTERDAY! I threw some vinegar on them and I’m sold. Thanks so much Barb! :)))

    Thanks so much for this idea! I was skeptical too, but I figured I would try it anyway. I have always reheated my fries in the oven but they were never as good. These were honestly better than the first day. I’ll be using this from now on!;)

        OMG!! PEOPLE PEOPLE. WHY have we been throwing away old fries for so long??? THIS is the best way to eat fries- they are so crispy and just simply amazing- I sprinkled garlic powder, season salt, and parsly flakes on top, and served with a mayo/tabasco dipping sauce- my husband and i both agreeded these were better than expected, since im a waitress at CHILIS- and im ALWAYS bringing leftover fries home- I am def going to be bringing all leftover fries from the night home haha- time to get FAT!!! Thanks a million for this!! you rock!

        Haha yes! Stop throwing away your leftover fries people! I’m so happy you and your husband loved this method as much as we did :)

    Hi, I don’t have any metal pans, just glass. Do you think this would work with a (heavy bottom) pyrex frying pan? I don’t have a clue as to the science of cooking, but I love 5 Guys fries and 3 of us can’t even finish a regular order — would love to save them from the trash.

      Hi Joan – So sorry for the late response! Yes, I think a pyrex frying pan should work. Let me know if you try that out, good luck!
