Chef shares how to make four-ingredient chips that are 'tastier than McDonald's'

A teenage chef has shared how to make chips at home that are supposedly better than fast-food giant McDonald’s.

Morgan Hipworth might know what he’s talking about as the 19-year-old founded his own food business – Bistro Morgan Bakehouse – in Melbourne.

The teen has now gone viral for his tips on how to get the crispiest and fluffiest home-made French fries.

Morgan also claims that his fries are healthier than McDonald’s as they don’t need to be deep-fried.

Revealing his four-ingredient recipe on TikTok, Morgan said you only need red-skinned potatoes, olive oil, salt, and herbs.

To begin, Morgan cut the potato into sticks, to resemble skinny chips.

He explained: ‘First up, we need to peel and cut the potatoes into fries. Add the fries to a pot with cold water and sea salt.’

After leaving the potatoes in water for a few minutes, Morgan then boiled it for a further two minutes.

This process of parboiling means the potato will need less time in the oven to roast and the insides of the chips will come out fluffy.

you can’t beat french fries, what should I make next? 🤤 #foryou #cooking #food #yum

The next step is to drain the potatoes and transfer them onto a baking tray.

Morgan added: ‘Bake with olive oil, salt, and your favourite herbs at 200 degrees Celsius for 25 minutes.

‘Boom, there you have it. The perfect French fries.’
