Even though ketchup is usually the condiment of choice for french fries, try these two mayonnaise-based sauces, which are laced with capers, anchovies, and Dijon mustard. They just might change your condiment preferences permanently.
Making your own fries at home can seem daunting but if you are willing to sacrifice some cooking oil and time, it is really quite easy. As you all know, I loathe ketchup so I normally eat my fries plain or dipped in some other sort of sauce-cocktail or tartar if eating some kind of seafood etc. So I've always been intrigued by the variety of sauces (normally mayo-based) that Belgian frites shops offer. I came up with two simple sauces that not only are extremely tasty but are made of ingredients I always have on hand. And they keep just fine in the refrigerator for a few days, so you can make them ahead of time if the thought of frying and making sauce simultaneously is too daunting.
