    I’m so excited to update my Truffle Fries recipe! It was originally shared in 2010 using a Microsoft Word designed recipe card. I felt it was time we give this delicious recipe we frequently enjoy new life! We fell in love with Truffle Fries when we lived in Kansas City and they were served at the now defunct Blanc. Since, we’ve been serving them up as an easy appetizer or side dish!

    What is Truffle Oil?

    Truffle oil is olive oil infused with real truffles for a subtle but delicious truffle flavor. Use a high quality truffle oil for the best flavor. I tend to use white truffle oil that is made with white truffles for a subtle, garlicky flavor, but you can use black truffle oil if you prefer. Black truffle oil has a powerful, earthy aroma and flavor.

    If your local grocer doesn’t carry it, you can find truffle oil in specialty food stores, Whole Foods, Williams Sonoma and of course, Amazon.

    How to Garnish Gourmet Fries

    These are incredible on their own, but a little fresh cracked sea salt and fresh grated parmesan take them over the top. Fresh grated parmesan from a wedge offers better flavor than grated parmesan. It’s worth the 30 second effort! If you want to add a little color you can top them with fresh parsley as well.

    These fries are amazing on their own, but I never resist an opportunity to dip! You’ll love them with:

    How to Make Truffle Fries

    Of course you could pull out your deep fryer, but that’s a whole lot of fuss and mess you can easily avoid. Not to mention baking your Truffle Fries prevents your home from smelling like grease and makes them so much healthier. Baked Truffle Fries are easy to make! They’re baking until slightly crisp and golden brown.

    truffle fries in bowl

    Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

    Clean potatoes – I leave the skin on, but you can peel it if you’d prefer.

    Using a sharp knife, cut potatoes into slices, then into thin equal strips so they bake evenly. You can also use a mandoline or potato slicer if you have one or make them often.

    how to make truffle fries

    Spray a baking sheet line it with parchment paper. Line the sheet with a single layer of potatoes.

    Bake 15 minutes on the lower rack so they crisp up. Flip fries and bake an additional 10-15 minutes until they’re golden brown and to the desired crispness.

    Toss hot fries with a touch of truffle oil or drizzle on top of the baking sheet.
