Comté Fries

Comté Fries


  • 2 stalks of flat leaf parsley
  • 1 tbsp. flaked almonds
  • 150 g fine bread crumbs
  • 1 tbsp. paprika
  • 1 tbsp. sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 500 g of Comté
  • 50 cl of cooking oil of your choice


  • Prepare the parsley by removing the leaves from the stems, rinsing under cold water, drying and finely chopping. 
  • Crush the almonds using your preferred crushing method (food processor, mortar & pestle, etc.) 
  • In a separate plate, mix breadcrumbs with the chopped parsley, paprika, crushed almonds and sea salt.
  • Break the eggs into a separate bowl and whisk to homogenize.
  • Remove rind from the Comté and cut into matchstick or French Fry shapes.
  • Bread the Comté fries. First by dipping each piece into the egg mixture and then into the breadcrumb mixture. Bread each piece of Comte and set aside. 
  • Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Once the oil has come to temperature, fry the Comté fries 2 or 3 at a time so as to not overcrowd the pan. Turn the fries regularly with a slotted spoon until a golden color is achieved.
  • Remove the fries onto a plate covered with a paper towel to absorb the excess oil. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste immediately after cooking.  
  • Repeat until all Comté is cooked.
  • Serve quickly!
