My brother-in-law believes that french fries exist for no purpose other than to convey ketchup into your mouth. I, on the other hand, believe that ketchup is necessary only when the fries are poorly prepared. We do agree that "freedom fries" is one of the stupidist knee-jerk reactions ever encountered in the world of food. Your vote and opinion are welcome, though, as is often the case when the battle lines are so clearly drawn, I fear no minds will be altered.

so, before I vote, I have a couple of questions ...

1. fast food fries?
2. home made fries?
3. what kind of potato?
4. shoestring or chunky fries?
5. peanut or olive oil?
6. panfried, ovenbaked or deep fried?
7. peeled or skin on?

now, on to the ketchup

a. why not catsup?
b. homemade?
c. bottled?
d. heinz?
e. why not mayo?

Fry and ketchup style are left to the individual's personal preference, which you are welcome to expound upon.

Personally, I like sports bar/bar fries, peeled, deep fried, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. Curly fries are good too; what the heck do they season them with, I wonder? I prefer ketchup to catsup, in the interest of retaining the simpler phoenetic spelling whenever possible. Bottled, because I am too lazy to make my own.

Mayo is pretty good too. Though, like ketchup, the good fry can be enjoyed without.

I like a few fries now and then, sans ketchup unless they're really bad. If they are bad, with ketchup and mustard.

What about fries with melted cheddar cheese and brown gravy ?

What about steak fries with mustard, ketchup, and mayo ?

Vinegar ?

If I didn't have to go to bed soon, I could go on all night about the virtues of different fried potatoes.

Do y'all think Osama calls his "terror fries" ?

If I get to request my optimum fried potatoes, I won't need any ketchup - but a little old-fashioned chili (sort of English immigrants salsa) on the side would be nice.

I'll have skinny shoestring potatoes, preferably Yukon Gold - soaked in water and some blueberry vinegar for at least an hour prior to frying. Deep fried. They'll be almost hollow inside that crispy shell. mmmmmmmm

Now, since it's the New Year, and we're still eating healthy it's more likely to be something like

They come out a lot like bar fries - crispy outside, soft inside, scrumptious all the way through.

I'm with Hamburger, Belgian fries are the best. Although my nationalistic superego compels me to state that Dutch fries are the ultimate patates frites, I just have to go with the Belgian version.


Yes, Belgian fries rock! Too bad they're not edible...




Dutch fries however, are edible. Plus, they're simply the best! We eat 'em with mayonaise (yes, only one -n-; Dutch mayonaise is different from regular mayonnaise. The difference is: Dutch mayonaise rocks!) We "f*ckin' drown'em in that ****!"

I never soil my fries with catsup. Cooked correctly they are deliciously delectable all on their own. Small wonder since they are potatoes and I love potatoes.

Oi,what's all this about fries? They're called chips.Made from fresh potatoes,about as long as your index finger,and chunky ( not like McDonalds skinny,floppy things ) deep fried,not oven-baked,in oil ( it used to be lard,untill the health-food brigade stuck their oar in ).All you need on an English chip is salt and vinegar.

I voted for ketchup shovel... although it is the combination of both that makes it so delicious.
