Do you prefer French Fries with Mayo instead of Ketchup?

For some reason, this works for me. I like the flavor combo.

How about you?

Do you like mayo based dips for your fries?

    No. I prefer my french fries with malt vinegar.

      I like a side of vinegar and a side of mayo(not mayo based sauces). If vinegar is not available, then mayo. If mayo is not available, mustard. Almost never ketchup.

      Yes. Can't stand the smell of that sweet red goo. Mayo all the way.

        Ditto. Ketchup never touches anything I eat. I love mayo or a mayo-based dip for fries. A mixture of mayo and malt vinegar or mayo and dijon is delightful. Blue cheese salad dressing (with mayo as a base ingredient, of course) is also a fabulous condiment for fries.

              Just this past Saturday, I asked for some mayo for my fries, the waitperson looked at me a little strangely... they should try some, it's wonderful.

              Agreed. Just a little ketchup on scrambled eggs though. But yeah, the smell of ketchup is a rancid one.

                I just can't get over the color contrast with the yellow eggs. Must be a thing I never grew out of! For me, I just can imagine bludgining tomatoes into a pasty tasting item.

                  Haha. I'm from Iowa and the state college (Iowa State Cyclones) is ketchup and mustard colors. I never get over that ugly ugly color combo lol. At least I'm more of an Iowa Hawkeyes fan (yellow gold and black). The state rivalry is something to behold. Us Hawk fans always make fun of ISU's colors. Maybe instead of "ketchup and mustard" colors, it should be "ketchup and eggs." Lol.

              vinegar and dijon mayo! ketchup once in a while.

              1. Sooeygun Jun 26, 2013 06:20 AM

                Depends. Sometimes I like fries with mayo, sometimes with ketchup, sometimes with gravy, sometimes vinegar, sometimes McD sweet and sour (or plum or whatever) sauce.

                'It depends' seems to be my answer for a lot of these 'either/or' questions that pop up.

                        For shoestring fries, I prefer ketchup. For thicker/handcut or steak fries, I prefer malt vinegar, or a spicy mayo-based dipping sauce. Not sure what's in it, but it's a pink creamy sauce that a local joint serves with their colossal onion rings. Anybody have any idea what it's called or a recipe?

                          most likely some variation on thousand island dressing. mayo, ketchup, probably a bit of mustard and then whatever their secret ingredient is/are. garlic, pickle, sriracha, etc

                            It sounds like fry sauce. I'm sorry I don't have a recipe, but you can search for fry sauce recipes and tweak them to your taste.

                            Danish "remoulade" is also acceptable. It's a mayo-based sauce with a little curry powder for colour and finely chopped pickled vegetables.

                                  Never tried 'em with mayo, but I'd be willing to give it a shot.

                                  I prefer catsup or malt vinegar, depending on what the fries accompany.

                                          since I do not usually eat ketchup, mayo works well for me.

                                          but really tasty fries need no additional condiment...

                                            No. I like my fries w/ BBQ sauce. Aioli is OK every now and then though.

                                              Ketchup. I like the way the vinegar in the ketchup balances out the fat in the french fries. I'm a great mayo lover for other applications, but mayo just adds more of the same taste sensation as the fries do. There is not enough contrast. Malt vinegar works great for the same reason, but I do not like it as much as ketchup.

                                                  Emphatically. mayonnaise, aioli, tartar sauce, even sour cream with horseradish. Ketchup to me is a component of meatloaf and of my own barbecue sauce; I mostly keep it around for Mrs. O, who likes it on fries and a few other things. As for malt vinegar, it smells to me like coal gas, and I can't get past that. Ghastly.

                                                    For fries, I like them how I've had them in the Netherlands - three lines across the serving - one each of ketchup, mayo and peanut sauce.

                                                    For chips (as we call them in Britain), it's malt vinegar all the way.

                                                        My favorite is tarter sauce, followed by ketchup.

We'll cross the Bridge and go for fried fish, clams, oysters, etc., and their homemade fries. It's BYO. The Deck is on the water where the lobster boats moor. Pretty good spot in the mid-afternoon when the tourists are doin' other stuff.

                                                                  They put their condiments on a counter, in those giant pump jars and have those little cups there to put 'em in. I get two with Tartar, two with ketchup, and two with Malt. I sit with my plate of fries, sea air, cold beer, and dip fries in various alternate ways into the various sauces. By gettin' two of each, it's OK to double dip and get some Malt in the ketchup or some ketchup in the Tartar. There's still the "pure" one.

                                                                  Funny thing is, they also have a wall of hot sauces rangin' from three to ten on the scale.* Ironically, that's usually what I use for my clams or fried oysters.

                                                                  *Oh, and sometimes, I add a hot sauce to a third cup of ketchup.

They, however, almost by law, have to get dipped into a small cup of ketchup and vinegar mixed together. Nevertheless, we'll wander a few planks down, give the kid at the grilll stand a buck or two, and get a Dixie cup fulla "cheese" sauce in return.

                                                                      At that point, there's nothin' to do but sit on a bench, stare at the Atlantic, and contemplate whether the fries taste better with the ketchup concoction or the cheese dip.

After too many beers we'd stop, sit in a booth, play AC/DC on one of those old tableside jukeboxes, and ask the waitress "Can you make 'em with onion rings mixed in too?" No better way to prevent a hangover the next morning.

                                                                      Second place goes to fries and gravy (again, poured over top, to produce a glorious combination of fresh fries and goopy mess).

                                                                          Malt vinegar when I'm having fish n chips.

If you don't know this cheese, it's an ultra-homogenized french brie-type, and available just about everywhere. The result of the fine-filtration homogenization is that it's super creamy and buttery inside. Dip a fry in that, I dare you. This is like a Lay's potato chip challenge- you'll be having another.

Ketchup, Mayo, mustard, pesto, olive oil, hummus, salsa, sunday sauce, sriracha, cheese, almond butter, yogurt, vinegar, maple syrup, anything! I love french fries so much. Potatoes in general are the worst for me because if there is a potato on my plate it's the only thing i'm eating and that is why I never order french fries. There's a cute place downtown in Manhattan on the east side (by St Marks) called Pomme Frittes that must have been established because they know about my addiction. A cone of fries and sauces for dipping! Heaven!

                                                                                        I would say I slightly prefer mayo over ketchup like 60:40.

I have recently fallen for fish 'n' chips (specifically at Gullifty's in Bryn Mawr, PA), and the accompanying tartar sauce goes well with all of the above. Don't need ketchup at all.

For a "wet" condiment, my preference is gravy. But if mayo or ketchup are available, I'll take whatever is going. Occasionally will ask for mayo.

I can eat catsup but as I get older it seems too sweet. I have had a spicy catsup too, but still like salsa better. Weird, I know.

A small amount on a burger or sandwich or lightly dressed coleslaw or chicken salad fine. Everything else no way. The thought of it with fries makes me shudder.
