Ingredients for Homemade Truffle Fries

Potatoes – Russet potatoes or starchy baking potatoes are the best choice for a crisp exterior and a fluffy interior. However, any potato will do and if you’re short on time, use a bag of thawed-out frozen fries in any shape!

Truffle Oil – Truffle fries often come with a hefty price tag however, you can purchase inexpensive Truffle oil and a little goes a long way. Truffle oil spray is another great way to turn meals or sides into a gourmet treat!

Seasonings – If you have it, leftover bacon grease is an excellent (and budget-friendly!) alternative to olive oil and will give truffle fries a slightly smoky flavor. Use this seasoned salt recipe and tailor the ingredients to your liking.

  • Scrub the potato skins or peel them if desired. Cut the potatoes into ½ inch slices and cut each slice into ½-inch french fries.

  • Add the potatoes to a large bowl filled with cold water and let soak for 30 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a large rimmed baking pan with parchment paper.

  • Remove the fries from the water and dab very dry with a kitchen towel. Toss the fries with olive oil and salt.

  • Spread evenly in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Do not overcrowd the pan, use two pans if needed.

  • Bake the fries for 20 minutes. Increase the temperature to 425°F, toss the fries, and cook until golden, about 15 to 20 minutes more.

  • Once the fries are crisp, remove them from the oven and use a spatula to stir them. Immediately toss with truffle oil.

  • Garnish with Parmesan cheese and serve.

Air Fryer: If desired, the fries can be cooked in the air fryer. Prepare as directed, and once dabbed dry, place the fries in a single layer in the air fryer. Cook at 390°F for 16 to 19 minutes, shaking after 10 minutes. Cook until the fries are crisp.
