Every food tastes unique when prepared in a different way. There are many types of fries that go well with different sauces. They have a special place in today’s cuisine and can be easily combined with every kind of food.

5-Minute Crafts prepared a special guide for you to help you decide what type of fries to make for the next occasion.

1. Steak fries

Steak fries got their name because they were originally served with steak. These are not as crunchy as shoestring fries. They are soft on the inside, similar in texture to a baked potato. They originate from France and Belgium.

Steak fries are the best combined with steak and the following sauces:

2. Sweet potato fries

Sweet potato fries, as the name suggests, are made from sweet potatoes. You prepare them by covering them with olive oil, sprinkling spices on them, and baking them in the oven until they turn golden. Usually, they have more vitamin A, potassium, and antioxidants than regular fires.

Sweet potato fries go well with the following sauces:

3. Curly fries

Curly fries are a type of french fry with a unique shape. They are made by cutting a regular potato with a special tool called a twin curl cutter. These types of fries are seasoned with garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne, kosher salt, all-purpose flour, and paprika.

They are best combined with these sauces:

4. Tornado fries

Tornado fries originate from Korea and are popular street food. They can be made at home by putting a potato on a stick and cutting it at an angle while rotating it. After cutting, spread the potato on the stick. They are dipped in butter and fried until they become golden in color.

They’re usually not combined with any sauces but are good with parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.

5. Shoestring fries

Shoestring fries are cut into thin, even strips and deep-fried until they become crispy. They go well with a sandwich and are a great alternative to potato chips.

6. Waffle fries

Waffle fries got their name because they resemble a waffle. They are soft on the inside, crispy on the outside, and can be bland or have a variety of spices on them. Their shape allows them to hold the perfect amount of sauce. You can use a crinkle cutter to cut the waffle shape.

Waffle fries go well with these sauces:

7. Crinkle-cut fries

Crinkle-cut fries are heavy, thick fries. They have a soft texture and are not as crunchy as regular French fries. Make sure you eat them while they are warm, otherwise, they don’t taste as good. These fries can be made by pre-soaking regular potatoes and cutting them with a crinkle cutter. Crinkle-cut fries go well with fish, meat, chicken, or any type of hamburger.

8. Standard fries

Standard fries or French fries are the first invented fries and are a classic choice. They are thinly sliced potatoes that are deep-fried at 275ºF.
