Truffle Parmesan Shoestring French Fries Recipe.  What can I say about truffle oil that doesn’t include the word delicious?  The first time I had truffle oil on french fries was also coincidentally, the last time I had french fries WITHOUT truffle oil!

The added Parmesan cheese brings the melded flavors together with an absolute BANG!

I also chose to make shoestring fries, which is not necessary, you cut the potatoes into regular fry shape, I just prefer the shoestring fries because I feel they absorb the most flavor.


There are 2 keys to making the very best french fries.  The first is to soak the fries in cold water to remove the starch and the second is to double-fry the potatoes.  This gives them a hyper-crunch texture.

Bonus if you have a mandolin to cut the fries, it will save you a good deal of time, but if not, feel free to cut them the old fashioned way (I did!).


You are going to absolutely love this recipe.  I cannot stress enough how well french fries go with Parmesan cheese and truffle oil.  I used white truffle oil on my fries but feel free to use black truffle oil if that is what you have on hand!
