Celebrate National French Fry Day with These Creative Recipes


The second Friday in July is dedicated to arguably the most iconic side item of all time — today is National French Fry Day!

They’re perfect with steak, burgers, hot dogs, and more, making them ideal for the summer BBQ season. However, if you’re looking to spruce up your spud side, we’ve got the spread for you.

We mentioned fries and steak. Why not combine the two? Throw in some veggies and other ingredients, and you’ve got Steak and Fries Salad, from Taste of Home. Sure, it’s not as low calorie as your standard salad, but it’s sure tasty, and a fine way to freshen up your use of fries.

If you’re cooking fries with burgers and franks, chances are you’ll have the ingredients nearby to make these delicious fries from Baked Bree. As the name suggests, she bakes up this batch of chili cheese fries. They also feature bacon and ranch, adding to the familiar pallet of flavors for your fries.

We close our loaded list with another loaded fry recipe — this one for vegans. The Edgy Veg shows us one that combines tofu, vegan breakfast sausage, and more to create a delicious (and healthy) option.

Can you pass the ketchup, please? Have a delicious National French Fry Day. Also don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more DIY, recipe, holiday, and crafting content.
