A Random Wednesday Conversation Starter

You have before you a plate of perfect, golden-brown, piping-hot French fries. You can enjoy ANY condiment for dipping -- but NO ketchup. What condiment do you choose?

Brown mustard. Or maybe honey. I used to dip my Chicken McNuggets and fries in honey when I was a kid and could still stomach Chicken McNuggets.

Thousand Island dressing.

I usually eat my fries sans condiments anyway but occasionally, for a little variety, I do dip them in some hot barbeque sauce.

Sriracha.

A lot of locally owned restaurants and fast-food joints here in Utah and southern Idaho offer a local delicacy called "fry sauce," which I've never encountered anywhere else. Recipes vary, but the simplest (and most prevalent) variant is a just a mixture of mayonnaise and ketchup that creates a pinkish, sweetish dunking condiment. I also enjoy the sauce offered at one local chain, which is made from a fairly sharp-flavored BBQ sauce and mayo.

If that stuff doesn't count for this conversation (because of the ketchup content), then that white sausage gravy that's commonly ladled over chicken-fried steak.

Ranch dressing.

Malt vinegar.

None of my most-recent ancestors are Brits, but some of the farther-back ones are. Genetic memory, perhaps?

Blue cheese dressing.

Try it mixed with ketchup. Amazing, no lie.

Poutine, eh?

Normally nothing. BUT, if I'm at The Dakota (where I saw Dave Brubeck, RIP), THIS.

Oh, or dipping them in a chocolate shake is pretty awesome too.

Salsa! Specifically, Herdez brand. Very tasty.

Patrick Connors said...

Mayonnaise, which I will actually ask for on occasion.

Or ranch dressing.

Or tartar sauce, if I'm having fish and chips.

Or chili that dripped off the hot dog, if I'm having a chili dog.
