There are so many things out there to dip your french fries in. Of course there is the classic tomato ketchup, which has held its own as everyone’s favorite french fry accompaniment. Yet despite ketchup’s prominence at every fast food restaurant and diner table, some may say there is no other dip more perfect for french fries then ranch. And further still, there are those that dip their fries in BBQ sauce or for spice lovers, sriracha. Today I am sharing my personal favorite dip for french fries: Truffle Aioli.
For those of you that are unfamiliar with aioli, aioli is a french sauce very similar to mayonnaise. The ingredients are quite simple: garlic, egg yolk , lemon juice, salt and oil. The traditional technique however, is not so simple. Traditionally aioli is made with a mortar and pestle and involves quite a bit of whisking as you slowly, very slowly, incorporate the oil into the other ingredients eventually creating a very smooth emulsified dip. For my sanity and because I don’t want my right arm to be 3 times the size of my left arm, I decided to use a food processor for this recipe and it worked very nicely. As with the traditional recipe slowly drizzling the oil into the egg yolk mixture is the key, otherwise the aioli will separate.
As for the truffle oil in this recipe, you can find it at gourmet food stores or online. I have also found it in a couple of supermarkets. It can be a little on the pricey side but a little really does go a long way.
Note: This recipe does call for raw egg yolk. To help curb any health concerns use only grade A eggs. Also be sure that the eggs have been properly refrigerated and that the shells are intact and free of any cracks.
Store any leftover aioli in an airtight container and use within a couple of days. This isn't just a great dip for french fries. It's also delicious with artichokes or even as a dip for crab cakes. Enjoy!
