French fries

French fries are irresistibly delicious, don't you think? Well, Chelsea just shared this recipe for making your own, and it looks super easy. You could give it a Belgian twist and serve them with mayonnaise!

Bronwyn said...

Yum!
French fries are one of those things that I try to avoid lest I remember how delicious they are....
Or instead of mayonnaise you could do what my sister does and eat them with béarnaise or pepper sauce!

Yum! These look delicious. It's almost 12am here in Australia and this is the kind of midnight snack I am craving x

I love fries. I'm embarrassed to admit that I eat them at least twice a week. Whoever thought to fry a potato is my hero.

Mariela said...

I love French fries, thank you for the recipe. Have a nice day.

Sage Crown Parker said...

yes please!
my mother love them with mayo, for some reason they always taste the best to me with vinegar and lots of salt!!!

Joanna Goddard said...

bronwyn, that sounds AMAZING. your sister is a genius :)

Joanna Goddard said...

vinegar and salt -- that sounds like british fish + chips! :)

Chapstick Fanatic said...

I love french fries way to much. I can never stop with just one. I will have to try this.

ps. my friend had a theory: whenever you walk by a restaurant and something smells totally delicious and enticing, 99% of the time, it's french fries! :)

They taste delicious with tartar sauce!!

Becca said...

Ooo - I agree, it totally is the french fries! I had some last night and they were fried in Mushroom Oil (I never knew such a thing existed!) It was amazing how rich tasting they were, but still weren't heavy. They had an awesome earthy-potatoey goodness about them!

Those look delicious!! However Joanna, the French mostly eat their fries with ketchup (although they do have mayonnaise). It's very much a Dutch and Belgian thing to do, to eat them with mayonnaise. :)

marissa at the boot said...

mm all the italians eat them with mayo too! i thought it was so gross until i tried it...it's like a heart attack waiting to happen but delicious!

iris said...

...with basil mayonnaise. Yep, definitely.

Lisa Griffin said...

SeaGal said...

Interesting..I am not a fries person, but my daughter loves them..she eats them dipped in ketchup mixed with mayonnaise. I'll pass this onto her..

I Dream Of said...

Would it be wrong to have French Fries for breakfast?

VH McKenzie said...

Well I know what will be for dinner in the East Village tonight. And home-made tartar sauce was my first inclination for dipping.

The french fry is the perfect vehicle for so many good sauces - thanks for this!

Nicole said...

French fries really are the one smell that I 100% cannot resist. They're just so good! And don't even get me started on the deliciousness of sweet potato french fries!

Kimberly said...

Those look so good that I am now craving french fries at 9:15 AM...

And on that note...french fries with mayonnaise was a game changer for me. There is nothing more delicious than dipping a fried object in more oil. Especially a heavily SALTED fried object.

Yum :)

add rosemary to the potatoes before you bake them. it's delicous! we call it 'rosmarinkartoffeln' (rosemary potatoes) in germany.

Ah, but mayonnaise with fries is belgian - although French people near the Belgian border might do it as well.

Oh I didn't know eating them with mayonnaise was a french thing! In all of Germany and BeNeLux, it's always the choice between mayo, ketchup or both, and I believe mayo is the most popular :-) I didn't even come to think about that some people might do that differently ;-)

It's only 9:30 here and I'm now starving!!! French fries are easily my one weakness. I'm going out to lunch today, so I just might have to order some! :)

Hil said...

Yum. I also love sweet potato fries! I was thinking of a cup of Jo last night (this is totally off topic) when out to see Midnight in Paris, one of the mos beautiful and amazing films I've seen. Oh nostalgia and Paris.

Jac said...

Cornwall-on-Hudson (about 45 minutes north of Manhattan) has a little shop called King's that serves all different types of fries with 31 types of dipping sauces. It's amazing!

Closet Cravings said...

I've never met a french fry that I didn't like. Yums in the tums. =)

french fries are my downfall - i can never resist!!! if anyone lives in DC, there is a food truck "the fry captain" and he sells fries fried in duck fat. it may sound odd, but they are DEEEELISH!!!

Lovely Greens said...

Deep-fry your fries in beef fat for a real Belgian effect! There's a cute little Belgian bar in London called the Dovetail that serves them by the pint...SOOOO Good!

G. said...

Hey, I'm Beglian, and do you know what would make it even more Belgian then mayo (certainly for the kids)?
Mixing your mayo with ketchup, which gives you a "cocktail sauce"!!!! Oh yes, we love that in Belgium. But every time I mention it here in the US, they look at me like I'm from another planet and that my way to eat is discusting LOL

dreamday said...

these look so good. i've been eating way too many fries this summer but oh well, i guess i can work them off come winter. yummm!

Deanna (Silly Goose Farm) said...

This looks yummy! I posted a recipe for oven fries with spicy ketchup (and super-juicy Turkey Burgers) on my blog in February. Check it out, if you'd like: http://thesillygoosefarm.blogspot.com/2011/02/turkey-burgers-and-oven-fries.html

Deanna (Silly Goose Farm) said...

Oh, and if you blanche the potatoes first, then roast them, they get little "nooks and crannies" which makes them even crunchier!

life is happy most of the time. said...

french fries are my favorite treat ever. over any sort of ice cream or sweets. i think your friend is right it is always what smells so good when you walk by and that is cause it IS!! :)

rebecca said...

My mouth is watering. Those look absolutely devine. (And no, I don't think I've ever used that word to describe fries before! Haha)

Rachel said...

Mmm French fries with mayo - soo good!

Robin said...

Yum!
My mom always makes baked fries...her secret ingredient is to mix a little anchovy paste with olive oil and drizzle it on the potatoes before baking.

domestikate said...

Oh I love chips and mayonnaise! It's the best accompaniment!

Hollie said...

fries + mayo are my guilty pleasure :\

Trina said...

Fries + mayo = awesomeness. I just remember that scene in the car from Pulp Fiction (the one where Jules and Vincent talk about the Royale with Cheese) as clueing me into the whole "you don't have to put just ketchup on your fries" thing.

sarah said...

EEEP! I'm on Lisa's website! I had no idea! I love it!

Kim said...

i always mix mayo + ketchup for my fries - i think that makes me half belgian :) i've been craving these since i first saw the post this morning, then ashley from edibleperspective.com posted a recipe with beer-soaked french fries - ahhh!!! so delicious looking.

mayo + ketchup is genius, can't wait to try it :) and whoa, kim, i am going right over to that beer-soaked recipe. xo

Mmmm...my adorable roommate is from Belgium and taught me to dip fries in mayonnaise, which I would never have thought to do. Now I dip them first in mayo and then ketchup, and it is crazy delicious!
