From Bacon-Wrapped French Fries to Saucy Seafood Fries

When you order a fast food meal, the burger usually takes center stage as the focal point of the meal, but these creative french fries no longer serve as just sides.

Some twists to the classic form of the french fry include wrapping it in something like bacon or tossing the potato sticks onto a pizza, hot dog or forming them into a burger-like bun. Recipes where french fries are essential like poutine also get radical transformations in the form of sushi, pizza and desserts. There are also a ton of recipes that stray from the starchiness that comes with the use of a white potato, trading this root vegetable in for healthier alternatives like sweet potatoes, zucchini and pumpkin that are just as hearty.
