12 Alternative French Fry Recipes For When You Want To Switch Up Your Snacking

We may live by the motto “fries before guys," but that doesn't mean we like to limit ourselves. In fact, in addition to our favorite French fries, we love trying as many unique fry recipes as possible. (Avocado fries, anyone?)

All of your favorite vegetables and even some fruits can taste better with just a little time in the oven, or a quick douse in the fryer. Plus, they're bound to be healthier than your fast food favorites, no matter how tantalizing the grease may be. It's time to try a new kind of fry.
