Truffle fries are baked fries finished with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and truffle oil.


  • 2 large russet potatoes, cut into 1/4 inch fast-food fries
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon truffle oil
  • Fresh and finely parmesan cheese, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced
  • Salt and ground pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 450° F.
  2. Cut potatoes into ¼ inch thick restaurant-style/fast-food fries. No need to peel potatoes. Optionally soak fries in cool water for 1 hour (fluffier fries). Drain and pat dry well.
  3. Toss fries in olive oil and season generously with salt and a pinch of optional pepper. Ensure fries are evenly coated in oil.
  4. Transfer fries to a greased baking sheet and spread evenly with the least amount of overlap possible.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden and crispy, flipping halfway through. Let cool for 2 minutes before the next step. Top fries with fresh parsley and a generous sprinkle of finely grated parmesan cheese. Carefully drizzle with 1 tablespoon of truffle oil, toss to mix, and serve immediately. Add some extra parmesan to taste!


Always bake and drizzle with truffle oil after they’re out of the oven. Truffle oil loses its truffle flavor when it’s heated at high temps.

Soaking baked fries in water is said to remove some of the starch from the potatoes and contribute to crispier fries that are light and fluffy in the center. I read this tip in a cookbook years ago and I’ve been doing it ever since. I honestly think it makes better fries, especially if you’re baking them.
