Truffle Fries

Feeling ritzy on a Thursday, baby!

Are you kidding me?  When I see truffle fries on a restaurant menu I am all over that shiznit.  They are insane!

Why not just eat truffle fries whenever you feel like it?!  You will be livin’ the high life, baby, eating truffle fries whenever the mood strikes!  Today is just a regular old Thursday and I had truffle fries for lunch.  Don’t you wish you were me?  Aren’t you so jealous of my truffle fry Thursday?

Yes, you too can eat truffle fries on a Thursday afternoon while chasing your runny-nosed preschoolers around your sloppy-ass living room.  It’s easy.  All you need is a $15 bottle of truffle oil stashed in your cupboard.  Oh, and these other pantry staples.

Handful of Fresh Parsley
Tablespoon or so of Mayonnaise
Sprinkling of Garlic Powder

…and a potato of course.

Click here for my easy-peasy oven fry recipe.  That’s right, oven fries.  On top of having a fabulous truffle lifestyle you can also look like a supermodel.  These truffle fries are no more fattening than a baked potato.  Which, by the way carb-counters, happen to be pretty healthy.

Ok so for this prep we will not be using crab seasoning.  Just a little sprinkling of salt.  While your oven fries are crisping in the oven, lets make a little garlic aioli for dipping.  Hey why not?  After all those fat calories we saved by not frying we can afford a little indulgence…

All you need is some mayo and some garlic powder.  I prefer garlic powder over fresh garlic in this scenario.  It is a little mellower and it just dissolves right into the mayo so you’re not getting a big peppery bite of garlic between your teeth that’s going to leave you with dragon breath for the next 36 hours…

Just stir a little garlic powder into your mayo and give it a taste.  You can use as much or as little as you like.

When your fries are crispy and brown just throw them back into that same bowl that you started with.  A little drizzle of truffle oil and a handful of chopped fresh parsley and you are livin’ large, girlfriend!

In case you are a new kid on the Yin Mom, Yang Mom block (welcome!), this is part five in the french fry subcategory of a series on 2012 Food Trends for the Home Cook.  Improve the quality of your life through food!  Just because you are a stay-at-home-mom and housewife doesn’t mean you have to subsist on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and mac and cheese!  You can eat restaurant-y food at home!  You can be a trendy eater!  Check out all the posts in this series and your tastebuds will thank you.
