Baked crispy fries tossed with truffle salt and fresh herbs. This crispy truffle fries with fresh herbs will be the perfect appetizer for any gathering.
  • 2 large potatoes (about 1.5 pounds)
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ - ½ teaspoon truffle salt (or garlic salt), more to taste
  • 1 sprig perilla
  • 1 sprig basil
  • 1 sprig mint
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
  1. Preheat the oven to 450F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly grease the surface with nonstick cooking spray or olive oil.
  2. Wash and scrub the potatoes thoroughly and then dry them. Cut the potatoes into either 1 inch cubes or into ½ inch thick sticks.
  3. Place the cut potatoes into a large pot and fill the pot with water until it covers all the potatoes. Turn on the heat to high and cook the potatoes until the water boils. Reduce the water to a simmer and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes until the edges look soft but the middle isn’t completely cooked.
  4. Drain the potatoes and place them in a large bowl or keep them in the pot. Drizzle olive oil over the potatoes, and sprinkle a little bit of salt, and toss until they are lightly coated with the olive oil. This will roughen up the edges of the potatoes and help make them extra crispy.
  5. Spread the potatoes in a single layer and bake them in the oven for about 45-50 minutes. About 20-25 minutes into the baking, remove the fries from the oven and turn them over. That way the fries will be evenly crispy and browned. Drizzle more olive oil over the fries if needed.
  6. Remove the fries from the oven and allow them to cool for a few minutes.
  7. While the fries are cooling, roughly chop up your favorite herbs. Add the freshly chopped herbs onto the fries and sprinkle more truffle salt over them to taste.
  8. Serve these crispy truffle fries with fresh herbs warm.
