Shoestring Fries are the perfect side for sandwiches, BBQ, and so much more. We love these super-thin, deep-fried, fun potatoes. They’re crispy, customizable– and of course, delicious. Once we show you how to make Shoestring Fries, you’ll never make fries the same way again. We love to make Garlic-Parmesan Fries–they’re so delicious and fun. Shoestring Fries are the ultimate complement to Stovetop Burgers, Best Chili Dogs, Grilled Cheese, Chicken Sandwiches, and…. well, I could go on forever. They’re thin enough that they’re great for leftovers or even grab-and-go snacking. You must try these! Why You’ll Love Shoestring Fries: They’re a retro-cool sensation: Shoestring Fries were super popular in the 1950s and 60s. And guess what? They’re back! They’re better than fries: It’s hard to beat crispy French fries …but Shoestring Fries are even crispier.
You can customize them: Add in the seasonings you love and make them your own. Garlic salt, Parmesan cheese, rosemary, and pepper…. the sky’s the limit! Try dipping them in ketchup, honey mustard, ranch…whatever appeals. I listed all of my favorite garnishes and different ways to season them in the recipe card, so be sure to check that out. And you just HAVE to dip them in our amazing fry sauce! I love to eat them by the handful and even stack them on burgers as a garnish. I think you’re gonna be a huge Shoestring Fries fan. And I’m always right.
