Truffle Fries

Potatoes are food that I will never be able to give up. No matter how hard I try, they always find their way back into my life. However, after watching Supersize Me, I have had a hard time saying ‘yes’ to McDonald’s french fries. So when I need my french fry fix, this recipe comes in handy like no other. To bump the taste of the fries up a notch (or 3), simply add sea salt and truffle oil for a world of change.

You will need:
3 potatoes
Oil (Peanut oil works well)
Sea salt
Truffle Oil

How to make:
1. Peel and slice the potatoes into thin or thick slices (your preference).
2. Soak your potato slices in ice-cold water for 1 hour.
3. Heat oil (I used peanut oil) until it reaches 325°.
4. Drain and divide your potato slices into 3 batches – you don’t want to dump all of the slices into the hot oil at once because that will cool the oil down.
5. Dunk your potato slices into the hot oil until they turn a golden color. If you’re like me, you might be afraid of hot oil splashing up. This came in handy.
6. Once the first batch is golden, place in a bowl. Repeat with the other two batches.
7. After the 3 batches are finished, heat your oil up to 375° and repeat the process.
8. Let the fries cool down in a big bowl lined with paper towels. Drizzle truffle oil over them and top with sea salt.

Bon Appetit!

  3. Noticed you used peanut oil to as your frying oil. Quite a few people are not aware that when you deep fry with peanut oil, it doesn’t soak into your food and give your chicken or in this case french fries a peanuty taste. And that’s because the moisture within the food when its heated creates steam and and pushes the oil back out leaving you with a crispy fried potateo with its own flavor. I’ve used Truffle Fries recipe before. Excellent recipe.
