Oven-Baked Parmesan Truffle Fries

Oven-Baked Parmesan Truffle Fries

I hate mushrooms, not quite sure why. I have a memory of eating them once and loving them, but honestly can't remember if that's a dream or it actually happened. Either way, truffle oil is the closest I will come to mushrooms now. It helps that truffle oil is AMAZING on basically everything. My first memory of realizing why truffle oil was so expensive and special, was when Chuck offered Serena a grilled cheese with truffle oil in the first episode of Gossip Girl after she'd been drinking at the bar. Then I was like, okay, if it's good enough for Serena, I must cook with it.
