These duck fat Parmesan truffle fries may be a mouth full, but they are super simple to make and served with the most AMAZING truffle mayonnaise dipping sauce.
Truffle fries are awesome.
However, I remember the first time I had them and I wasn’t very excited about it.
For years I talked a bunch of crap about how I didn’t understand truffle fries and why people thought they were so good (talking crap – it’s what I do).
I am wrong about so many things all the time.
Because truffle fries are SO GOOD.
The truffle gives the fries this absolutely amazing earthy flavor, and the duck fat….oh that wonderfully rich duck fat…crisps the fries up, while the Parmesan cheese adds the perfect amount of umami flavor.
Guys, how could I have ever not loved truffle fries?
What do I Need to Make These Duck Fat Parmesan Truffle Fries?
The best part about these fries is that you can use frozen shoestring fries. In fact, I encourage it.
Perhaps julianning (spellcheck doesn’t like this but I think it’s a word) your own fresh potatoes is better, but I ain’t got time for that.
I’m perfectly content with the store bought frozen ones.
Duck fat. My opinion is you should always have some duck fat in your pantry. It’s so good on so many things. If you haven’t bought it yet, you can buy it through Amazon using the link below (this is an affiliate link – I earn a small commission if you buy through this link):
Now I use this super awesome truffle seasoning that I got as part of a gift, and I am hooked. Real truffles are super expensive, so this seasoning is a great low cost alternative. I’m not going to say it’s the same as using fresh grated truffle, but I think it produces great results.

How do we Make these Duck Fat Parmesan Truffle Fries?
You will never believe how easy it is guys.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees (or follow instruction on the package).
Remove fries from bag and spread on a baking sheet.
Drizzle with melted duck fat, salt and truffle seasoning. If you want a stronger truffle flavor, use more truffle zest.
Bake for 20-30 minutes, stirring halfway through.
While your fries are cooking, you can make your truffle mayonnaise.
Guys, you’re going to want to eat this on everything.
It’s easy to make the mayonnaise.
Mix the ingredients in a bowl.
LOL. Easy right?
Once your fries are done remove them from the oven, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve with your truffle mayonnaise or ketchup if your heart so desires.
