    @silvertipgrizz this is very interesting. I loved going to In n Out and alas there are two in my state and they are both miles away. Too far.

    Doesn't New York Fries do odd fry dishes like this?

    This picture also makes me think of French Canadian poutine.

    We have a popular local restaurant here that specializes in many variations of poutine with various cheeses, sauces & meats added.

    The simple, traditional type of poutine is fries, with mozzarella cheese & gravy on top. That is the Quebec way and that's the only way to serve it, they claim! My husband likes poutine, but I hate soggy fries.

    BTW, lots of Canadians like beef gravy on their fries. I like dipping mine sometimes if the gravy is good. I remember serving an exchange student from France in a restaurant years ago and he had never heard of such a thing. He enjoyed trying it.

    If you order fish & chips in Canada, you will get fish & fries. The first time I ordered fish & chips in the US, I was thoroughly disappointed as I got potato chips.

    I like dipping onion rings in ranch dressing, but don't do that very often.

    Since we are talking tasty but unhealthy here, I thought that I'd add a bit more "food" for thought. 🍟

    I am a fan of all things French fry or even Belgian! I love real ketchup on good fries, or even just some Creole seasoning (think Bo Jangles fries for folks in the south), I love cheese fries, chili cheese fries, gravy on fries, mayo and mustard, etc, etc, etc!

    Mmm. I like baked sweet potato fries with a mayo-lime-cayenne dressing...homemade of course!

    BTW, I avoid breaking out the deep fryer unless I have seafood or something else large batch to fry. I've tried like a zillion ways of making fries. Here is my super easy... 3 times a week minimum technique.

    Par boil potatoes, skin on (just cut off any bad spots)


    Cut into home fries

    toss in just enough oil to coat and lay on a sheet pan so they do not touch

    Bake at 425 F for 20 minutes

    Turn and do it again

    Turn and bake another 10 minutes if necessary (usually isn't)

    Salt/season and eat!
