Helpful Tips for Parmesan Truffle Fries
Pre-Heat Deep Fryer
I used a deep fryer to make these French fries. Make sure that if you use a fryer to regulate the temperature of the oil. It needs to be 350 degrees F. If the oil isn't preheated it will not create crispy fries.
You can buy a slicer to cut your potatoes evenly. This is a press that will make perfectly even shaped fries that will cook up beautifully. Or you can slice by hand if you don't have a slicer. Just aim for evenly sized pieces so they cook up evenly.
Variations to Parmesan Truffle Fries
Depending on the brand of oil the flavor can vary. There is even black truffle oil you could swap out with the white. Earthy, rich, and a stand-out flavor that will truly elevate the fries to a whole new level.
Leave Off Parmesan Cheese
If you don't want the parmesan cheese you can leave it off if you prefer. I find that the parmesan adds a nice tangy bite to the fries that stands out. You could also swap with another type of cheese if you want.

Parmesan Truffle Fries
- 3 medium or 2 large yellow potatoes
- 1 tbsp parmesan cheese
- 1 tbsp white truffle oil
- Salt to taste
- Heat your deep fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Wash your potatoes thoroughly on the outside.
- Cut your potatoes with a slicer to get the thicker julienne (fries) cut.
- Put your potatoes in a bowl of ice water and rinse the water until the water is clear.
- Once your fryer has warmed up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, fry your fries twice. First time you fry them for about 6-8 minutes, or until light brown.
- Then remove them from the fryer and let all the oil drip off.
- Then fry them again, for about 2 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Put them in a bowl with kitchen towels, so it can absorb all the oil.
- Grab a medium-sized bowl and pour in the truffle oil, and then the fries on top. Mix and shake the fries on top of the oil, to make sure all the fries get some of the truffle oil on it. (I don’t pour it over it because it can make it a little soggy)
- Then top with some Parmesan cheese and season with salt to taste.
