What should I serve with buffalo fries?

I could eat these as a main course, especially if you add some shredded rotisserie chicken on them.

But if you want to serve some side dishes with them, these are some delicious options.

Dipping Sauces: Ranch dressing, blue cheese dressing, honey mustard, sour cream, or even a spicy aioli works well.

Fresh Veggies: Balance out the fries with some fresh veggies such as carrot sticks, celery sticks, or cucumber slices.

Fruit: Another great option is to serve some fresh fruit alongside your fries.

Grapes, apple slices, and strawberries are all great choices that can provide a nice contrast to the spicy and savory flavors of the fries.

Salad: If you’re looking for a more substantial side dish, consider serving a side salad. A simple green salad with a light vinaigrette is best.

Can I use fresh fries instead of frozen?

While frozen fries are recommended for this recipe, you can certainly use fresh fries if you prefer. Just be sure to adjust the cooking time accordingly.

Is there a way to make this recipe less spicy?

If you’re not a fan of spicy food, you can use less buffalo sauce or try a mild or medium wing sauce.

Can I use a different type of cheese instead of blue cheese?

Bleu cheese crumbles is what is typically served with hot wings and buffalo sauce but feel free to use your favorite.

Cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, or even pepper jack cheese will work well with these.

How long do these buffalo fries stay fresh?

These fries are best served immediately after cooking.

However, if you have leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.

Can you reheat them?

Yes, you can reheat buffalo fries in the oven or air fryer to restore their crispiness. But, they will not be as crispy as when you first made them because the sauces seep into the fries.

 Avoid reheating them in the microwave, as this can make them soggy.

Can you freeze them?

While it is possible to freeze Buffalo Fries, they will not be crispy any longer. Starting with frozen fries means you can make as much or as little as you like.

So there is not need to freeze them!
