These homemade french fries are kind of a big dill… if you know what I mean 😜
These french fries are fried not just once, but TWICE for extra crispy perfection, and then seasoned with generous amounts of garlic, fine sea salt, and my favorite unique twist to the recipe, DILL!
With only 5 ingredients and 6 steps, I don’t think you’ll ever hit the Mcdonalds drive-thru again for boring soggy fries again

Garlic Butter French Fries

When it comes to butter, garlic, and fries, they are “butter” all together!
While these aren’t 100% homemade, sometimes I need to “cheat” when I’m busy…
These are about as simple as they come you guys, just butter and garlic tossed together. That’s seriously it. But don’t be fooled, the taste is so good that anyone will think a LOT more preparation went into making them as delicious as they are
All you have to do is melt butter with garlic in the microwave, and once your fries are golden brown and slightly crispy, toss them with the garlic butter and VOILA!
These are truly my butter half 🍟
Air Fryer Steak Fries

If you’re wondering how I feel about these steak fries… well, I think they are quite a RARE commodity, and very WELL DONE if you ask me!
These are air fried, so a healthier option your everyday boring old regular fries, so thick that they are almost wedge like, and loaded with garlic and parmesan cheese.
All you need to do is wash and cut your potatoes, toss them in a little bit of olive oil, and transfer them to your air fryer basket for no more than 20 minutes
They’re the perfect thick and crispy fries for the weekend or game day… Plus, they’d be great finger food paired with chicken strips that you could also make in the air fryer!
True love is rare, and I’m falling for these steak fries!

Are you ready to spice up your life with these baked jicama fries? These are absolutely INSANE!
If you’ve never had jicama before, prepare to be amazed by the benefits and the deliciousness…
With half the calories, about half the carbohydrates, and double the dietary fiber of a white potato, it’s easy to see why somebody would want to switch up their usual carby potato with Jicama Fries!
These, are sweet, crunchy, and full of zest and spice. They resemble fries, but you will notice a tiny bit of a difference in texture. But to be honest, I like it dare I say, better?
I highly recommend giving this a try, your bikini body will thank you later!
Baked Sweet Potato French Fries

What’s the nicest vegetable out there? Well, sweet potato, of course!
Who doesn’t love sweet potato fries? I’ll admit to the fact that at any restaurant I’m quick to order them over the regulars
They are crisp, much sweeter than regular fries, and they go perfect with many different sauces other than ketchup too. It’s hard to find the right recipe for sweet potato fries because they are hard to cook and can often be soggy…
THESE. ARE. THE. ONE’S.
They have a light garlicky seasoning, which gives you that irresistible salty-sweet balance that you love so much about them, and are prepared and cooked to perfection
Plus, they’re naturally gluten free and vegetarian, yay!

Every day I’m trufflin’ trufflin’!
These french fries are prepared pretty standardly like normal french fries are, but with an amazing truffle twist
Cut your potatoes into thin long strips, toss them in a large bowl with olive oil, and oven bake or fry. When your fries are done, take them out of the oven and drizzle with truffle oil
A little bit of that goes a long tasty way, let me tell you!
These will be so hard not to make every night as a side dish or at a summer event or holiday, and you’ll be devouring them all summer long!
These may be “truffle makers” on my summer body this year!
Baked Zucchini Fries
I’ll be honest, It took me a minute to jump on the “substitute things for Zucchini” train, and my bikini body is very upset with me!
These baked zucchini fries are cheesy and flavorful with grated fresh Parmesan cheese and an Italian spice blend on top. They’re also gluten-free, and low card for a delicious snack that will keep you on track this summer!
This is worth the try and taste buds will thank you later!
Baked Green Bean Fries

Where has this recipe BEAN all my life?
These baked green bean fries are deliciously crispy and baked to that perfect golden brown. I know you might be thinking… “green beans, really?!”
Trust me, I was the same way, but they’re a perfect alternative to regular homemade french fries and they still taste amazing
You toss the beans in flour, then in the egg wash, finally in the panko bread crumb mixture and you ready to go!
They’re perfect for meal prep, cooking on the grill, or as a side dish to anything, you will not want to miss out on this!
I am all about wedges for the spring and summer
They are thicker, juicer, and they fill me up more than your traditional fries. And these are sure to bring the HEAT
All you need to do for these sensational spicy’s is season them with garlic powder, cayenne pepper, paprika, salt, and pepper, toss them in olive oil, bake them, and there you have it!
These are spicy, and will most definitely spice up your summer, enjoy!
