— July 13, 2016 — Lifestyle
For those interested in celebrating National French Fry Day 2016 with something unique, these unexpected French fry dishes are the perfect choice. From the ultra-spicy to the overly sweet, these recipes put an innovative twist on a classic side dish.

In recent years, a number of restaurants have begun experimenting with fries in unique ways. For instance, McDonald's has tested a number of sweet French fry dishes that feature toppings such as chocolate sauce, honey and even sakura seasoning. On the other hand, restaurants such as Red Robin have tried to up the ante with ultra-spicy fries topped with fried jalapenos and ghost chili sauce.

Of course, you don't have to visit a restaurant in order to get your hands on some delicious French fries. Instead, why not celebrate National French Fry Day 2016 by whipping up some homemade frites with unexpected ingredients. These creative French fry recipes include pickled French fries, quail egg poutines and even sloppy French fry bakes.
