Ingredients

  • 4 large russet Idaho® potatoes, scrubbed and sliced into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1/2 cup duck fat, room temperature
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon truffle oil
  • 2 cloves roasted garlic, chopped
  • Rosemary, thyme and sage, chopped
  • Jacobsen rosemary salt

For the Aioli

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon truffle oil
  • Rosemary, chopped
  • Smoked salt
  • Coarse ground black pepper

Preparation

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  • 2 Toss the sliced potatoes in a dish with the duck fat, reserving 2 tablespoons. Season liberally with salt.
  • 3 Rub 2 baking sheets with a thin layer of the reserved duck fat.
  • 4 Arrange the potatoes onto the baking sheets in a single layer.
  • 5 Bake for 25-30 minutes, flipping fries and rotating pans halfway through cook time, until golden and crunchy.
