Forget the cheese board—serve up a fry board for your Super Bowl party

Cheese boards are so 2019. This year, we’re all about the “Fry Board.” That’s right—the new trend trades in fancy cheeses and thinly sliced meats for all different kinds of French Fries. I’m talking crinkle cut fries, waffle fries, curly fries, sweet potato fries, and even tater tots. No form of fried potato is off limits. 

There’s no right or wrong way to display the fries on your board. If you don’t have a large cheeseboard, a cookie sheet works just as well. That’s one of my favorite parts about the fry board—it looks just as delicious on a cookie sheet as it does on a fancy charcuterie board. Also, if you go the route of the baking sheet, you can serve up the fries straight out of the oven so they stay warmer longer. Just make sure to cover the edges with towels or pot holders so no one burns themselves.

As you can imagine, the only unfortunate part about the fry board is that fries tend to get cold quickly. That's why I recommend reserving this glorious board for when you have a large number of people who can quickly consume fries.

Serve the fries with whatever dips you fancy—store bought or homemade. Really, the sky is the limit! My only recommendation is that you make sure the dips aren’t too thick, otherwise your fry will break.

I like to include a sweet sauce, a savory sauce, a spicy sauce, and a zesty sauce. Also, you should probably include normal ketchup just in case you have guests who don’t want to venture out of their comfort zone.

I display the dips in ramekins, but any small bowl will work well.

I used all frozen fries, except the sweet potato fries—I made those myself. Get my recipe here. The sauces, though, are homemade. I'm including the recipes in case you're interested in making your own sauces as well!

I got the idea for this fry board from The Delicious Life blog.
