For the French Fries

  • 3 large potatoes, cut into 1/4 inch strips
  • 1-3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon bacon grease optional
  • 1 teaspoon salt, coarsely ground

For the Creole Aioli

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Creole mustard
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice (juice of 1/2 lemon)
  • 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce, optional


For the French Fries

  • Heat oil and bacon grease (if used) in 10-11 inch skillet over medium heat.
  • Test heat by adding one french fry. If it gives a good sizzle, the heat is right.
  • Add potatoes slowly to prevent oil from cooling.
  • Gently stir a few times to promote even cooking.
  • Cook 8-10 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  • Remove with slotted spoon to absorbent paper to drain.
  • Salt potatoes while still hot and toss lightly.

For the Creole Aioli

  • Brown garlic in olive oil over medium heat for 1-2 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Stir remaining ingredients together.
  • Add garlic and olive oil and stir until well blended.
  • Garnish with an extra shake of Creole seasoning, if desired.


This makes enough for two skillets full of fries. According to how big the appetites are that you're feeding, it will be about 5-6 servings.
