Anyone hear of Bloomsburg, PA? Every Fall they host a "Fair" …… one of the best things there are Mountain Fries. Fresh cut french fries topped with mozzarella and cheddar cheese, bacon and ranch dressing. To die for!
Poutine is officially home cut fresh fries with cheese curds and onion (brown) gravy.
Mottzarella is often substituted for the cheese curds.
McDonald’s serves poutine in Quebec, but very little in the states.
The "newer’ chain restaurants in Quebec now offer variations of poutine, including tomato based sauces, as well as the brown gravy ones.
Montreal is great for this as you can choose between the "pomme frites" Belgian style fries in paper cones with mayo based dipping sauces or poutine-both are offered all over the city.
Wish I could remember where, but I once shared a platter of sweet potato fries covered in bacon bits and 3 cheeses, then broiled to melt the cheese, and served with a ranch dipping sauce.
Quaker Steak and Lube in PA tried this, but used frozen french fries and the result was terrible
At Paradise Pup on River Road in Des Plaines Il: 3-way fries…French fries, Merkts Cheddar cheese spread, sour cream and bacon. Once or twice a year we indulge. They also do good char-grilled burgers and excellent individually made shakes including Banana-chocolate, raspberry, oreo, and pumpkin in the fall.
I like the seasoned fries at O Charleys. No matter where we eat, my daughter always orders Ranch Dressing on the side to dip her fries in.
Last year while I was busy with College I would eat fries for a quick snack.
If I’m in a real hurry, I’ll nuke some frozen fries in the microwave sprinkled with a little salt. They come out very gooey just the way I like them. I either eat with Ketchup or put some salsa and cheddar cheese on top and return to the microwave. Surprised I dont have cancer by now. heh
A friend of mine once baked some crinkle-cut fries with Tony Chachere’s (I live in the South and its the about the ONLY seasoning we use lol, but you could use soul or cajun seasoning). We dipped these in Ranch Dressing… talk about WOW! Really wakes ya up.
For a meal I sometimes put leftover chili on top with diced onions and cheese and nice dollop of sour cream on top of that!
Of course most of all, my favorite way to eat french fries is dipped in a nice thick vanilla icecream shake. Hey! Dont dis it till ya try it!!! [;)] Artery cloggin I know…
My brother loves to eat his fries with ketchup and tobasco sauce mixed or ketchup mixed with our homemade hotsauce made with rotel tomatoes! Oddly, its pretty good I must say.
Talk about getting creative down here! Hope this has sparked a few ideas for you road foodies out there. [:D]
Arctic Circle, a nasty burger chain out of Salt Lake City has their (in)famous "fry sauce" — a sweetish mix of tomato catsup and mayo. Still going strong there.
Mmmmm, poutine. It hasn’t gotten to the Midwest yet, but I’m waiting…in the meantime, malt vinegar and salt, or curry sauce are good. Or chipotle mayo. Seems like hardly anyone uses just ketchup anymore. Frank’s Hot Sauce is good, too.
I like to dip my fries in sweet and sour sauce. My brother has a strange habit that started when he was little, he dips his fries in orange soda.
Callahan’s (Irish Pub) 1027 South Main St., Cheshire, CT (203) 271- 1993.
They also offer an Irish Dinner (I forget exactly it’s title on the menu), but it’s a baked potato and a 6 pack of beer! Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!!
For Chili Cheese Fries nothing beats Tommy’s.. My own personal fave fry topping is Frite Saus (I buy it from a German grocery online..it’s amazing) or a combo of ranch and ketchup..separate,but together.
Texas Pete (hot sauce) and salt.
Also while visiting friends in Utah we had lunch at a diner and the ff’s were very good and served with a cup of "Fry Sauce" I was told it was a mixture of catchup, mustard and (Hellman’s) mayonnaise.
Chile cheese fries here in New Mexico. Red or Green Chile sauce. I of course prefer green 🙂 Ketchup standard and tarter sauce if I’m having fish. I still can’t get over this gravy fries thing, but won’t knock it since I haven’t tried it…yet.
I love french fries with vinegar … there’s nothing like it!! Especially when you are strolling down the boardwalk at the beach eating actual "boardwalk fries" with vinegar. Mmmmm. I also love cheese fries and dipping my fries in leftover wing sauce 🙂
You just can’t beat the good old Sling Blade standard.
I like mustard on dem french fried potaters.. mmm hmm.
Man the Best Fries that I have ever had was from Ollie’s Trolley ….some kind of special spices
Anyone know what it is ??? [|)]
By the way some were talking about mayonaise on them. Mayo is goooood on pinto beans !
