A bowl of chips sounds like the perfect ending to an exhausting day. However, reheating them for a hungover lunch the next day can often lead to an extremely soggy meal.
So what’s the best way to reheat the leftover fries the next day without turning them limp and lifeless.
It’s essential you remove moisture from leftover chips if one wants them to be crispy the next day.
The best way to take away any excess moisture is to pat them dry before re-cooking them on a very high heat in a pan or under the grill.
Potatoes are full of moisture that escapes when reheated, especially in a microwave or oven where the steam can’t escape.
Instead it is recommended that you twice-cook your chips by heating them again in a very hot pan or grill, or even a deep fryer if you have one.
However make sure they are dry before cooking them.
Use a piece of kitchen towel to pat the chips dry first before re-cooking them as this will remove excess water.
When storing leftover chips, cool them down as quickly as possible and then keep them in the fridge until you want to reheat them.
Cover the chips with a loose cover, as sealing them tightly can cause bacteria to grow.
