If I were to describe these fries in one phrase, I’d say they are, “Boujee on a Budget”! While they may sound all fancy and like something you’d find on an overpriced steakhouse menu, in reality, they are totally accessible and easy for anyone to make at home. I’d bet you probably have most of the ingredients in your kitchen already and just need to run to the store to get some truffle oil. And if you already keep truffle oil in your pantry, then you’re even boujee-er than me, in which case, I’m impressed!
If you don’t have much experience with truffle oil, here’s some quick background. Truffles are the fruit of a rare subterranean fungus that can go for up to $2,500 a pound due to their unique taste and complicated cultivation process. Truffle oil is a fraction of the cost of fresh truffles, but has the same beloved flavor. It is the essential ingredient to get that high end taste you deserve, but on a budget. These fries are the upscale version of the best form of potato: deep fried. Now, go make them, but be warned….these fries are so good that everyone at the table will be fighting for the last one!
