Any Favorite French Fries Toppings?

What are the craziest, tastiest, most fun things you've put on top of french fries?

      do you cook at the wonderful Misery Loves Company in Winooski VT? that's how they do them there!

        Nah. I first tried them that way off of a roach coach that used to be in the LA area. I've been doing them myself on occasion since then.

          Green tahini (i.e. tahini with lots of parsley, some garlic and lemon juice) is also excellent with fries.

          1. re: cheesecake17

            just straight tahini? I've never tried this

            1. re: helmut fig newton

              Tahini, mixed with a little water, lemon juice, salt. Sometimes cumin and garlic (powder, I don't like chunks)

          2. Half of a grilled cheese sandwich, with the other half underneath.

            I generally prefer to dip my fries rather than cover them, unless I'm having steak-frites and there's a nice boneless ribeye or something on there. Favorite dippage is a really good tartar sauce, though I used to frequent a restaurant where I could get a wonderful horseradish in sour cream. Aiöli is good too.

              I have to agree agree with you about tartar sauce as a splendid dip for Fries. The problem is that very few restaurants actually make a decent tartar sauce. And good tartar sauce is really a cinch to make at home.

                Recently, with my filet o fish I got extra tartar sauce (on the side) and used it on my fries. Absolutely delicious.

                Ditto on the aioli.
                The red 'seafood' sauce' in the bottle is good too.

                  I also dip fries and I like mayo, sometimes with some chipotles in adobo.

                    These would be blended?
                    Do you have a preferred ratio?
