You can use any size of fries; they can be thin or thick. You can cook them in the oven, an air fryer, or deep fry them in oil.
While they are cooking, make the satay sauce. Peel the onion, chop it and set aside.
Season the cooked fries with salt and top with mayonnaise and hot satay sauce. In the North Brabant province of the Netherlands, the fries are also served with curry sauce, but this is optional.
Top with the chopped raw onion. Enjoy!
Why are they called war fries?
“Patatje oorlog”, or War fries, gets its name from street slang. It is basically a “mess on your plate”.
How would I order a portion of war fries in the Netherlands?
It depends on where in the Netherlands you are. As a rule, in the south of the Netherlands you’d have to ask for "frietje oorlog", but in the rest of the Netherlands you’d need to order "patatje oorlog".
