Truffled French Fries

Rated as 3 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  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.

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...
