Recipe Tips

  • Freshly grated parmesan is best, although you can find freshly grated in the specialty cheese area of the grocery store.
  • Russet or Yukon gold potatoes are the best for making truffle fries.
  • Cut all fries the same size, ¼ inch thick is preferred.
  • Don’t overcrowd the fries in the pot, work in batches.

Variations

  • Try topping the fries with a different type of cheese!
  • Change up the fresh herbs. Chopped basil, rosemary, thyme or oregano or also amazing!
  • Dip your fries in dipping sauce! Aioli sauces are great with these fries.
