Snacks That Are More Delicious Than Fries
Few things rival the salty, crunchy taste of a warm French fry. Whether it’d be the waffle fry, the shoestring fry, or the wedge fry, there are tons of variations of the fried potato that we love. Instead of eating the standard potato fry, try a new spin on and old favorite. These variations are healthier, lighter, and even more delicious than classic fries.
Avocados, which are rich and creamy, make for great fries. The juxtaposition of soft on the inside and crisp on the outside will make you forget you ever liked traditional French fries. You could even put these fries on top of your burger and see how the crispy, creamy fry enhances your juicy burger bite.
Balsamic Eggplant Fries
Once you’ve tackled eggplant parmesan, how many other things can you do with this beautiful purple vegetable? These healthy mock fries are also baked, so you don’t have to worry about extra greasy calories.
Zucchini Fries with Avocado Aioli
These fries use nutritional yeast to satisfy your guests’ craving for cheese; you can skip the Parmigiano-Reggiano. Avocado aioli is a more impressive alternative to ketchup, and uses yogurt to make a creamy dipping sauce.

Sweet potatoes are great for you, and this baked, cinnamon-filled version offers a great option to serve to your guests. Topped off with Parmigiano-Reggiano, these mock fries have a cheesy finish that will have your guests licking their plates clean.
