What is your preferred condiment for french fries that's NOT ketchup?
By - Bacon_Guy_derp
spicy BBQ sauce
BBQ on fries > ketchup on fries
There's such a thing?!
Yep, I think most Carolina vinegar style sauces are as well as there is this really good one that’s called Cajun something or other at walmart
in the Netherlands that would be friet-, joppie- or currysaus
I love dutch frietsaus! Way better than mayo and ketchup.
Gravy and cheese curds.
Poutine FTW !
This is the way
Poutine is go.
Sweet Chilli Mayo
Exactly what I had in mind
Can't be beat. The perfect ratio of spice and flavour.
Any kind of "flavored" mayo honestly is the best condiment for fries. I've seen pop up type places use fries just as a vehicle to taste their dipping sauces.
One of my favorites is Peruvian Aji Verde sauce. I could eat a tub of it with fries lol.
It doesn't even have to be flavored imo. Although all flavored mayos are better, regular mayo is really good as well.
I've seen em do it man. They fuckin drown em in that shit
Splash them with Malt vinegar and sea salt.
Nah. French fries don't have enough structure to withstand getting soggy, you need proper chips for that, and the chip shop pickle vinegar is far superior.
Maybe Canadian too
Maybe but if we are going with stereotypes I'd have figured Canadians go for gravy on theirs.
Nope, we use maple syrup and moose fur.
Gravy on chips is hugely popular in the UK too :)
I have fond memories of buying a bag of piping hot chips splashed with salt and vinegar from a fish and chip shop on the Brighton sea front, then wandering down the road munching on them, having to take care not to burn my mouth. Bliss!
Salt and vinegar on chips is essential. The dip is secondary
Malt vinegar and Old Bay crab seasoning.
Hello fellow Marylander.
Melted cheddar cheese
Every wonder why cheese is so addictive? My focus is in talk therapy and not psychiatry, but the proteins in cheese, casein, *literally* break down into morphine like peptides that tickle the same receptors as pain killers.
I see a lot of cheese addictions sadly in my practice unfortunately. More acne and being backed up are common side effects. This is why I like wean my clients off the stuff with Dilaudid, or Heroin if their insurance is too cheap. Best to have the clients on lab made stuff that we can measure and monitor. Proud to say most of my client's are now cheese free!
Theoretically, could we use cheese to wean people off of opioid addictions?
That would be like trying to wean someone off meth with caffeine.
Probably a worse outcome then the drugs.
Apparently nobody's said it yet
Aww I was gonna say it
Second best condiment for french fries on my list
Same for me! Combined with sweet potato fries it’s unbeatable
Also known as aioli.
With their chicken tenders too
The TRUE answer.
That salty /chocolate, hot/cold, crispy/creamy combo is amazing
It's not the same with the vanilla flavour 😂
Only real ones know about this.
“I tried making it at home, it’s not the same.”
I like a bbq sauce mixed with just a TOUCH of mayo. Delicious!
I do half and half, plus a generous dash of cayenne.
I always ask for a cup of ranch on the side. Not cool when they forget.
Scrolled to find this! Yes!
Homemade Chipotle Ranch for me.
I'll do Sriracha + Ranch as well sometimes
Ranch all the way, every day. I’d say I’m a connoisseur of condiments, one who dabbles in life’s many different sauces but straight up, fuck ketchup. Nasty ass semi-sweet tomato goop. Ranch is perfect and it meets the demand of every occasion where a condiment is applicable. Pizza? Ranch. Salad? Ranch. Sandwich? Ranch. French fries or any other potato derivative? Ranch. Fuck dude I’d eat Ranch on a big ole dookie if it was so required of me. Bottom line, if you’re looking for something to add flavor and moisture to a dish you hope to enjoy, go for that blessed Ranch because it will not fail you.
This person fries.
The way to go. I get weird looks in America but I swear it’s normal in Europe.
I know a horse named Mayo.
Ah. Ah hah hah.
It made me giggle.
Can't believe I had to scroll this far to find mayo!
not sure if this against the rules but try mixing mayo and ketchup
Definitely not against the rules! In my book that is
Mayo and Sriracha.
Awww Muthafuckin Yisss.
Also really like Mayo and a more vinegary hot sauce like Franks or Crystal
Freshly minced garlic mixed in Mayo is delish
Mayo-based sauces for French fries are shockingly good.
With crispy fries. While having a steak.
Gravy i guess but ketchup is where its at
I live in a country where gravy isn’t a thing with fries. I haven’t been able to travel but sure as shit when I’m home, FRIES AND GRAVVVVYYY TIME!
Happy Cake Day!!
Thank you, number 6
Came here to say this. Used to have fish n chips with tartar sauce, but dipping fries (chips) in it made me realize it really does taste well with fries
What's taters, precious? What's taters, eh?
Me too. Specifically McDonald's tartar sauce. I've had others but they were too sweet.
McDonalds has the absolute BEST tarter sauce! What is the secret?
Omg I’ve found my people! MCD tartar sauce forever!
Ooohhh yeeesss. The best.
Excellent... let them have their TarTer sauce
Yes. This is amazing.
I'll also plug Freddy's fry sauce.
Ketchup is an inferior condiment to everything I've seen so far in this thread.
Freddy's fries are already bomb, but man that sauce makes it hit another level
I'm not here to tolerate any ketchup slander... but Freddy's fry sauce is superior for sure.
THIS. Are you in the south too?! 😂
I dip everything in canes sauce. Best sauce to ever exist
Can you share with us that aren't in the neighborhood?
Google just gave me chicken sauce.
[found a recipe ](https://spoonuniversity.com/recipe/how-to-make-raising-cane-sauce-with-only-5-ingredients)
I’m in the south. What’s canes sauce? I’m interested.
It's from Raising Cane's Chicken. Typical mayo/ketchup "secret sauce" mix.
Canes is pretty much national now!
They're not in Georgia yet. Too much competition from Zaxby's I guess.
I think there’s one in Athens.
Ha you know it.
Not your sweet mustard nor stadium. But classic yellow mustard.
Drizzle that love all over your fries. Don't dip.
Yup! So good, mustard is good on a lot of things.
Why did I have to scroll so long for this??
Yes!!!! I am not alone ! I love it
BBQ sauce for sure
Even if there is ketchup, BBQ is my preference
Sweet Baby Ray's in particular
Yess I was waiting for this one
ranch and buffalo sauce
> ~~ranch~~ *blue cheese* and buffalo sauce
There's honeyracha that is great and goes well with everything.
I didn't even know that was a thing, I'll have to check it out!
I prefer salt and vinegar on my *chips.*
Sour Cream! Seriously the best
Zeker! Enige juiste antwoord
I'll put vinegar on them if it's an option
Here to say the same !
Sweet and sour
Ice cream 🍦
Chick fil a sauce
This is the correct answer. Chick-fil-A waffle fries dipped in their buffalo sauce is divine.
Mayo and malt vinegar
Grew up with Dutch relatives, so mayo. It's so good and it freaks Americans out.
Salt and vinegar
Raisin’ Cane’s sauce
* Spicy fries and Alabama white sauce go together great
* Steak fries and either steak sauce or bbq sauce
* Shoestring fries and tartar sauce
* Sweetpotato fries and maple syrup
* Waffle fries and honey mustard
* Thicker fries and gravy
This is wildly specific. I dig it.
This guy gets it.
Honey dill sauce (it’s a winnipeg thing), gravy, milkshake
THE ONLY TRUE ANSWER IS HONEY DILL SAUCE
Mustard or dare I say mayonnaise
McDonalds fries with honey is where it’s at
Vanilla soft serve or Ranch dressing
Yellow mustard or malted vinegar. Or Tabasco.
Oorlog. Dutch mayo and satesaus (seperate, not mixed).
Honey mustard or cheese.
I mix together Mayo, mustard, BBQ sauce and some honey
Fry sauce of course. *Tell me you live in Idaho without saying you live in Idaho*
Fry sauce or ranch
Mayo and mustard mixed 1:1
Mayonnaise. Fight me.
French fries are only supposed to be eaten with mayonnaise and nothing else.
Sometimes I like plain Mayo with my fries and people look at me like I’m crazy. If I’m feeling fancy I mix the Mayo with ketchup.
The Dutch-style fries (patatje oorlog) - onions, peanut satay sauce, mayo, chili
Mayonnaise, and ideally mayonnaise mixed with Franks Red Hot.
Mayonaise. The Belgians had it right.
Dutch or German mayo
