I’m not a religious person but in college, my roommates and I were talking about what we would ‘give up’ if we participated in lent. French fries are my ultimate weakness. I could eat a bajillion pounds of French fries and be content (and probably induce my own heart attack).

I love challenges so I chose to give up French fries for a month. Never again. Neverrrr again.

It’s so hard to avoid these damn things! They’re everywhere and they pretty much pair with every meal that is on the menu when you dine out. Not to mention, when I was in college, our main dining hall had the best fries and it was just a massive pile of them that was all you can eat. Torture, I tell ya.

Since I vow to never deprive myself of French fries again, I fried up some thin curly fries one afternoon when the craving hit. I also made a horseradish mustard to dip them in. Yes, I’m a ketchup girl through and through but have you ever tried horseradish mustard? It’s actually really good for fried foods and atop burgers and whatnot. I love the zing and I load my sauce up with horseradish. Whenever I make homemade cocktail sauce, it is extra spicy because of how much horseradish I put in.

Guilty pleasure: I go to Arby’s solely to get their curly fries every now and then.

Okay but these curly fries were made with a spiralizer! I just stuck a potato on the device and spiralized it. I did cut them into fourths because it was one massive curly fry otherwise! They’re extremely thin cut so if that’s not your thing then this recipe might not be for you because the curly fries end up a bit more crispier. Kind of like those potato shoestring toppings that you can get in a can.

I was slightly obsessed with the shapes of these curly fries. SO fun!!

  1. In Germany we don’t have such a problem with ff. Potatoes go with everything here :) I love the recipe!

  2. This is brilliant! I never would have thought of using a spiralizer to make curly fries – and they look so amazing!
