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.

Ingredient Checklist

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

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

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

  • 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.

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

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

  • 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.

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

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.

I am a big fan of truffle fries and have made them many times but this one didn't work for me. I think the problem was in the red potatoes. They started to burn and never would crisp up once the truffle oil was added. I actually made this recipe twice. The first time I wrote it as written and when that didn't work I tried soaking the potatoes in cold water and rinsing instead of the microwave step but that didn't work either. The one thing I did like was the cilantro instead of the usual parsley. Read More
