I have yesterday's French Fries (Chips for those of you across the Pond). They were stored in a refrigerator overnight and now are cold AND soggy.
What's a good technique to reheat them in a small counter-top electrical oven? E.g. temperature? bake/broil/convection setting? How long?
- I must heat them on a sheet of thin wrapping aluminum foil (over a loose grill, no tray)
- I would prefer a method that takes less than 5 minutes, but that's not a cut-off
- The main goal is to have them somewhat crispyish on the outside, and tasty (not hard, not soggy) on the inside
- The fries/chips size can be either McDonalds size (1/2 cm^2 square cross cut) or slightly larger diner size (~0.5cm x 1 cm cross cut)
- The amount is such that - evenly spreading them on an aluminum foil sheet the size of the oven's tray - they cover pretty much the whole sheet, in single layer
- this is at work, so I am unlikely to have access to any ingredients (e.g. any answer that starts with "sprinkle with xyz oil" is less desirable.
The fries are fully-cooked, from an order from an eatery, not home-cooked. So while I don't know the ingredients/coating/what they were fried in, a safe assumption is that the fries are either standard McDonalds recipe, or some sort of generic US Diner or midrange restaurant recipe, assuming one is known.
