What Makes Italian Fries Stand Out?

Hot, crisp French fries are the perfect side dish for a burger or a sandwich, and they’re also a wonderful snack. But Italian fries are even better than regular French fries. What makes Italian fries stand out? It’s the delicious blend of Italian herbs and spices that bring out the flavor of the potato and, of course, cheese. 

Italian Herbs And Spices Add A Pop Of Flavor

The only thing that could make hot, perfectly fried potatoes better is some seasoning. Italian seasoning, to be exact. That’s because a blend of Italian herbs and spices adds zest to the fries that enhances the crispy deliciousness of fried potatoes. The typical herbs and spices used in Italian cooking are:

  • Garlic 
  • Thyme
  • Rosemary
  • Sage 
  • Parsley
  • Marjoram or Oregano

A mix of salt, traditional Italian herbs, and parmesan cheese sprinkled on French fries makes the fries stand out from other French fries. Once you have Italian fries, you won’t want plain fries again. For really over-the-top flavor, truffles can be grated over the fries or the fries can be fried in truffle oil. Typically, Italian fries are made with olive oil because olive oil is light and gives the fries a terrific crispy texture. But truffle oil fries that are seasoned with Italian seasoning are also delicious. 

Italian fries start with high-quality fresh potatoes that are meticulously cut into thin, uniform strips so they fry up crispy and delicious. But the true magic lies in the seasoning. Instead of the conventional salt and pepper, Italian fries are generously coated with a symphony of flavors. Aromatic rosemary, lots of garlic, sage, oregano, and other herbs and spices combine to take the flavor of these fries to the next level.

Italian Fries Are A Celebration Of Italian Cooking

Italian fries also symbolize the art of Italian cooking. Despite using just a few ingredients the harmonious blend of herbs, spices, and oil creates a taste that is both complex and comforting. It’s a testament to the Italian philosophy of letting the natural flavors of quality ingredients shine while also showcasing the ability to transform an ordinary dish into something extraordinary through thoughtful combinations.

Moreover, Italian fries are a wonderful accompaniment to a variety of dishes. Whether served alongside a succulent steak, a juicy burger, or as a standalone appetizer, they effortlessly elevate any meal. The contrast between the crispy exterior and the tender interior of the fries, coupled with the aromatic play of the Italian herbs and spices, makes for an unforgettable gastronomic experience.
