Sour Cream and Chive Fries

For this weeks installment of Five Ingredient Friday there are Sour Cream and Chive Oven Fries…yum! If you’ve ever visited Milwaukee and gone to a restaurant, you may have seen Sour Cream and Chive Fries on the menu, hopefully you ordered them and know what great flavors the pairing of sour cream and chives are. If not, try these immediately and fall in love!

Sour Cream and Chive Fries
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 2-4
  • 2 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbs Sour Cream (I used reduced fat)
  • 2 Tbs Freeze Dried Chives (can buy these in the spice isle at the grocery store)
  • 1 Tbs True Life Sea Salt by True Botanica (can be purchased at or a sea salt with some herbs and seasonings it in.
  • 2 Russet Potatoes, peeled, cleaned and cut
  1. Preheat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. In a bowl combine all ingredients except the potatoes and combine well.
  3. Peel, clean, and cut the potatoes in strips, then add to the bowl and coat with sour cream and chive mixture.
  4. Arrange on the lined baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes, allow to cool for 5-10 minutes and then peel the potatoes off the aluminum foil and enjoy (they need to rest for a few minutes on the aluminum foil so they form that nice crunchy exterior). Enjoy!

    Yum, these sound delicious and different! This is one recipe I’ve gotta try! Thanks so much!

      Thank you for the comment! They were definitely delicious and worth trying, here in Wisconsin they have Sour Cream and Chive Fries at some restaurants which is where I got the inspiration, but once you try them, you’ll know why they are popular.

    I am originally from Milwaukee, but moved to Georgia in 2007. I loved the restaurant on State St. that served these fries. I am grateful to come across this recipe. Will be trying it very soon. Thank you!

    These fries are amazing! Taste just like Saz’s fries!! I made a batch and left them on the stove to cool while I prepared our dinner table. I came back into the kitchen to see almost the whole tray gone! My son and his two friends had devoured it in less than 10 mins! Thanks for the recipe!!
