We all have that friend. You know the one. They’re “not going to order anything,” even though your warn them once, twice, three times that they can and will not eat any of your fries. The server sets down your plate of crispy/crinkled/curly fried potatoes, and you tuck in, aware of eyes following your every move. At some point, they ask to “try one,” gingerly taking one out of the pile, savoring it slowly. And just as seagulls attack a fallen Cheeto, the frenzy begins.

It's a small price to pay for their company, but there’s a way to enjoy all of your french fries in peace: make them at home. It's really not that hard. From curly to spicy to sweet, here are some of our very best fries you only have to share if you want to.
