7 Best Truffle Fries Recipes

What are Truffle Fries?

We will take regular French fries any day of the week, but truffle fries are ideal for when you want to make something extra special. Truffle fries consist of regular crispy French fries with truffle oil on top. The use of truffle oil didn’t become widespread in the United States until the 1990s, but it is pretty popular in today’s world. Since this ingredient is more expensive than most cooking oils, you’ll only see things like truffle fries on the menu of high-end restaurants.

Chef Jeffrey Strauss from California is the supposed inventor of truffle fries, but most five-star restaurants across the country are no stranger to truffle oil. If you’ve always wanted to know how to make truffle fries, continue reading to find out about our favorite truffle fry recipes.

Look no further for a quick and easy truffle fry recipe. This one calls for frozen shoestring fries, significantly cutting down the food prep time. You can also make a complementary malt vinegar aioli to serve alongside them.

Start by separating the bag of frozen fries onto two large baking sheets. Next, place the oven racks in the upper-middle and lower-middle sections and preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake the fries for 6 minutes, and switch the top and bottom trays so that both batches of fries can cook evenly. Continue baking for 6 to 8 minutes and immediately toss with truffle oil, parmesan, and fresh parsley. 

If you’re curious about the aioli sauce, all you need is egg yolk, kosher salt, malt vinegar, vegetable oil, and paprika to make it. The key is to let the oil flow in a steady stream to allow the sauce to thicken as you whisk. Once it’s thoroughly whisked, taste the sauce to make sure it’s to your liking. You can always add a little more vinegar if you’d like. This aioli is the perfect complementary dipping sauce for crispy truffle fries.

It can be hard to find good air fryer recipes, but this one is a winner in our book. The key to making crispy air fryer truffle fries is thoroughly drying the russet potatoes before tossing them in truffle oil. Arrange them in a single layer on a pan or inside the air fry basket so the fries won’t stick to each other. Preheat the air fryer and cook them on the French fry setting, usually 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes.

If you have an air fryer with multiple shelves, switch the pans halfway through the cooking time to help the fries cook evenly. Once the fries are ready, drizzle a little more truffle oil and sprinkle paprika, garlic powder, and truffle salt on top to season them.

Last but not least, these loaded truffle fries are delightfully satisfying. Along with crispy truffle fries, you will get added flavor by incorporating them with sauteed onions, mushrooms, garlic, and Gruyere cheese. By using frozen truffle fries, the prep work for this recipe is minimal.

If you’re baking the fries, the instructions say to cook them at 425 degrees Fahrenheit, and in an air fryer, set it to 360 instead. While the fries are cooking, sauté the onions in some butter, add sliced mushrooms and garlic and continue cooking until everything becomes caramelized. Next, get a large baking sheet and disperse the vegetable mixture evenly among the fries and sprinkle a generous amount of Gruyere cheese on top. Put it under the broiler for 3 to 5 minutes until the cheese is nice and melty.
