Truffled French Fries


During dinner at the W. Fort Lauderdale Hotel, truffled french fries came with our meal. After asking the ingredients, I came home to make them myself. A fun, very delicious, yet high caloric treat! Be sure to buy high quality truffle oil at an Italian or specialty market. My recipe calls for red potatoes, but frozen (shoestring-size) fries do cut down on time and taste almost as good.

6 servings


  • 6 large red potatoes, or more to taste

  • 3 cups canola oil

  • cup dried cilantro

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced, or more to taste

  • 2 tablespoons sea salt, or more to taste

  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 ½ tablespoons truffle oil


  1. Cut potatoes to desired size, but not too thick. Try to ensure fries are as close to the same size as possible.

  2. Place fries into a microwave-safe container and microwave for 4 minutes.

  3. Place oil into a frying pan and heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  4. Place 1 to 2 handfuls of fries in the frying pan and fry until browned and soft, 4 to 5 minutes, turning and tossing frequently to cook evenly.

  5. Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C).

  6. Drain fries in a bowl lined with a paper towel. Toss fries in the bowl to get rid of excess oil; remove paper towel.

  7. Combine cilantro, Parmesan cheese, garlic, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Toss fries in the mixture until well mixed. Drizzle fries with truffle oil and toss again until well mixed. Transfer fries to an oven-safe container.

  8. Bake in the preheated oven to allow truffle oil to settle and reheat fries, 5 to 7 minutes. Serve fries while hot.
