A couple weeks back, Gourmet Spotting was kind enough to send me a box of their awesome goodies to try out. They’re a company that selects and provides 4-6 artisanal gourmet food products from around the world and sends them right to your door each month for just $29.99/month and you can sign up with no commitment. Plus, with every box that gets shipped, they donate a meal to charity. Amazing, right?

So when I opened their box of goodies, the first thing I noticed was this right here: white truffle olive oil.

I’m a huge sucker for anything involving “truffle” so my mind went crazy just thinking about the possibilities of what to make. But after a couple of days of brainstorming, I finally came to a decision. I decided to make garlic french fries drizzled with this olive oil and roasted to absolute crisp perfection.

I decided to bake them so that they’re a bit healthier but let’s be real here – I did it because I just can’t stand a hot pot of oil sitting around on the stove.

So how was it? Uh, yeah, it was like fries on crack. It had the perfect balance of truffle-y goodness along with a bit of saltiness and starchiness. Jason and I devoured this like there was no tomorrow and totally made it a dinner meal for us.

What more could you ask for?

Oh and the best part about all this? The kind folks at Gourmet Spotting are offering Damn Delicious readers an additional batch of organic whole dried oregano from Sicily to go along with your box. Just be sure to use the code DELICIOUS. You can also check them out here on facebook and twitter.

  1. What is “ranch” and “pressed ranch”?

  2. Can I use the black truffle oil?

  3. We don’t have oven . It is ok to just fry it ?
    Thanks you in advance 🙂

  4. I’m having a last minute get together with about 20 people and I’m trying to simplify the night.. Do you think I could use frozen fries and follow the recipe? I’m sure it won’t be as good but wouldn’t have time to cut all those potatoes after work..

  5. Do they get crispy baked on the parchment paper?

  6. Yeah, I do believe I will be trying this out. My roommate has to have french fries; but, she hasn’t had them prepared with truffle oil, garlic or parmesan. If I can mimic this recipe and IF I don’t devour them by myself, I will introduce them to her, lol!! Does the percentage of truffle infusion truly matter? I read on recipe that recommended a minimum of 5%.

    • I wouldn’t blame you if you devoured this all by yourself! As for the percentage of truffle infusion, I actually have never paid attention to that but please feel free to use what works for you and your taste preferences.
