27 Examples of Unconventional French Fries

Celebrate National French Fry Day with These Fun Dishes

— July 13, 2015 — Lifestyle
Today is National French Fry Day and what better way to celebrate than with a French fry-inspired dish? While you could go the conventional route and opt for traditional potato-based fries, you could also shake things up with these unconventional French fry recipes. From spicy avocado fries to bacon-wrapped french fries, these recipes are the perfect way to celebrate this beloved dish.

For those who want to enjoy their fries without derailing their diet, there are ways of substituting potatoes for healthier ingredients. For something more savory, there are spicy avocado fries and seasoned tofu fries. For something on the sweeter side, there are cinnamon carrot fries, crispy plantain fries and even festive pumpkin fries.

For those who enjoy their fries in conventional potato-based form, there are other ways of celebrating National French Fry Day in style. You can add some meat to your dish by infusing your fries with bacon, chicken or even pepperoni. For something even more unusual, there are French Fry dishes topped with unorthodox ingredients such as miso oxtail gravy and sickeningly sweet cotton candy.
