Herb and Garlic Truffle Fries

Sel de la Terre restaurant in Boston has these french fries on the menu called Rosemary Pommes Fritas. Ask, Sizza- they are to die for. We had them there a while ago with our mom, and now that I am thinking of those fries, I can get them outta my head! Here's my attempt in copy-catting them:

2 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
2 small cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon parsley
1/2 teaspoon rosemary
1/2 teaspoon tarragon
1/2 teaspoon chives, finely chopped
Fresh cracked black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoon flour
2 teaspoons truffle salt
1 bag thin Frozen french fries, "Quick Fries" work great

1. Heat oven to temp given on package.

2. In a small bowl, melt the butter and add the olive oil and chopped garlic.

3. Mix together the herbs, flour, 1 tsp. of truffle salt and the black pepper.

4. Open the bag of fries and pour them into a large bowl. Drizzle the melted garlic butter over the frozen fries. Sprinkle the herb powder over the fries. Stir until the fries are well coated.

5. Transfer the fries into a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the fries are golden brown. Remove from the oven and toss immediately with remaining truffle salt to taste.



  1. Any ideas where to buy truffle salt? Online I mean (I'm in Pittsburgh :D )

  2. Great, thank you! Simple as that :) I've actually never heard of truffle salt. At a bar in Salem, Mass. I had tator tots with truffle oil, fresh grated parmesan-arregiano cheese and some spices. Heaven!!
