Author Notes: These are a baked version of the fries we eat at one of our favorite local restaurants. They are very rich, have a little heat, and are good as appetizers. I like them with Jennifer Perillo's award-winning Sweet and Savory Tomato Jam: http://www.food52.com/recipes...


Serves: 2, or more as an appetizer


  • 1 dozen Fingerling potatoes, cut lengthwise and then cut lengthwise again
  • 1+ tablespoons black or white truffle oil (use the + to lightly sprinkle over the baked fries)
  • 1 scant teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/2 scant teaspoons ground black pepper
  • pinches or 2 of cayenne pepper

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place the cut potatoes on a oven sheet pan. Pour on trufle oil, cayenne, salt and pepper. Toss with your hands.
  3. Place in oven for about 35-45 minutes, turning potatoes occasionally.
  4. When deep golden, take out of oven. Drain excess oil on paper towels.
