Hmmm - I feel like there must be another name for these,
but I'll be darned if I can figure out what it would be...
Butterfly fries are when they take a potato and thinly slice it in one continuous spiral - so you get one long curly strip.
Which is then promptly fried.*
So - it's really more potato-chippy than French Fry-ish.
Thanks to the fabulous Jenny C. - now you, too, can see the glory and the splendor that is the butterfly fry!
Admit it, don't they look good????
*Don't forget that the official family motto here at the House That Crazy Built is "If It's Fried, It Must Be Tried!"
