Baked Parsnip Fries

parsnip fries / parsnip fries /

Happy Fri-day! (pun intended, I’m so sorry).

What I’m not sorry about are these parsnip fries – they’re awesome and super simple to make. I recommend making extra because you (or your significant other – I’m not naming any names here), will likely eat most of them right off the baking sheet and you’re going to want a few left to enjoy with your burger.

Sir Kensington's Giveaway / (the giveaway is over & winners have been notified – thanks for your comments!)

baked parsnip fries
  1. Preheat your oven to 375.
  2. Scrub your parsnips clean and lightly peel them (you don't have to peel them if yours are really clean). Slice into thin strips.
  3. Toss with a drizzle of olive oil and a few good pinches of salt.
  4. Bake until golden brown, flipping halfway. (15-25 minutes depending on the size of your cuts)
  5. Remove from oven and serve immediately, they're best hot.

    Ketchup is best the original way… on fries, of course!

    • Serena on said:

      Mayo – love using some good mayo to make an aioli for fries or a sandwich
      Ketchup – I love it with super crispy onion rings (my hangover remedy)

    • Janyce on said:

      I love ketcup, period. My most unusual use of it is in my 14 ingredient phad thai sauce.
      Mayo is a fav of mine to make – either with garlic and lemon or malt vinegar. I use it in a lot of different ways…but grilling salmon with it is one of the best ways I know of to enhance our favorite fish in Seattle!
      p.s. I just started following your site and have made three dishes from it so far… not bad for 10 days! Thank you for the beautiful photos, clear instruction, and nom nom recipes!

      • jeanine from on said:

        Thanks Janyce – ha, no not bad for 10 days :). Glad you’ve been enjoying them!

      Ever since I was a kid, I’ve loved Ketchup. My grandpa told me Ketchup should be my middle name. I love dipping a classic grilled cheese in Ketchup (it’s like grilled cheese and potato soup). For mayo, I like making an aioli to put on potatoes. My favorite is roasted sweet potato fries dipped in a garlic basil aioli. Mmm!

    • Chantelle on said:

      I love ketchup!! I love it with veggie burgers, well done fries, sweet potato fries, beer batter onion rings, mixed with bbq sauce to dip my veggie buffalo wings in, Mixed with mustard on veggie dogs. All growing up I heard “Would you like fries with your ketchup?” It’s pretty much my favorite condiment.

    • Stephanie Davis on said:

      Mayo and Ketchup mixed together on veggie burgers or fries..YUM

    • Irene on said:

      Love spicy ketchup in sandwiches and love Chipotle mayo on a hotdog .. yumm!!

    • tina on said:

      I like to add curry powder to my ketchup. It is so good!

    • Susan on said:

      I love mayo with artichokes. I cut them in half and hollow out the choke. I fill with a mayo dip made with lemon juice and dill, or ground sundries tomatoes and roasted garlic.
      I mix ketchup with sweet chili sauce or roasted garlic for burgers or roasted potatoes.

    • grace on said:

      I love any mayo-based dip for fries! Especially wasabi mayo!

  2. Kristin on said:

    Ketchup – definitely on fries, or in a great homemade bbq sauce! Mayo – this may be throwback, but a little bit mixed with tuna, lime juice, diced red onion, dill, and salt and pepper makes the best classic tuna sandwich in my book!

  3. Danielle on said:

    I like mayo with artichokes- add lemon, garlic, and a dash of cayenne….Mmmm

  4. Lauren on said:

    Ketchup mixed with mayo for a yummy fry sauce – the best of both worlds!

  5. Phillip from on said:

    Ketchup and mayo TOGETHER is the way to go!

    I love mayo alone with some garlic powder, paprika, etc. to make my own Japanese yum-yum (white) sauce for homemade sushi too.

    As a fry addict, I’m definitely going to have to try these soon!

    • Elizabeth S on said:

      I have to agree with the crowd; ketchup and mayo are the best way to enjoy fries. Although you’ll find them on my table for plenty of other food combos.

  6. Hollyanne from on said:

    I love mayo on fries, and ketchup with my hash browns! Condiments are a potato’s best friend.

  7. Emily on said:

    Ketchup is wonderful on any type of fries whether it be sweet potato, truffle, or regular. A good dijon or brown spicy mustard is wonderful on a good burger or fries as well. I also like it on a good veggie patty or some roasted cauliflower and broccoli.

  8. Chelsea on said:

    I love ketchup on scrambled eggs!

  9. cori on said:

    Always on fries!

  10. Cristen on said:

    Ketchup on my sweet potato fries & mayo on my sardine sandwiches. Would love to spice those up, yum!

  11. Caren on said:

    I love ketchup on anything we could possibly call a burger. I am fond of British/kiwi style ketchup’s that are less sweet and more sour.

  12. Lizzie on said:

    Ketchup mixed with mayo – best thing to dip fries in EVER.

  13. jessicaisbaking from on said:

    i love mayo in slaw!!

  14. Holly from on said:

    Super yum! Let’s be honest, fries are just a vehicle for sauce 🙂 This parsnip variety looks excellent.

  15. lena from on said:

    We got into Sir Kensington’s ketchup a few months ago and haven’t looked back (it’s irresistible on a good french fry) but the rest of the line isn’t sold at our favorite grocery store–I’m certain all the flavors would be divine!

    • Sir Kensington from on said:

      Hi Lena,

      Fantastic to hear. What is your favorite grocery store? We can work on helping them offer the rest of the products.

  16. Deanne on said:

    I absolutely love mayo with a little sriracha and lime mixed in as a delicious dipping sauce/aioli for shrimp, veggies, or whatever floats your boat!

  17. Caitlin W on said:

    I love my mayo with some sriracha swirled in, so chipotle mayo sounds delightful! An essential companion to shoestring fries, tater tots, roasted potatoes, et al. I have only recently accepted ketchup into my life after having some all natural ketchup for the first time!

  18. Jessie on said:

    Sweet potato fries!

  19. RBrook on said:

    My favorite way to enjoy ketchup is on a burger or on waffle fries.

  20. Olivia on said:

    Belgian style – both mixed together with fries!

  21. Bianca from on said:

    loove ketchup on my eggs!

  22. Ana on said:

    There is nothing better than ketchup with fries. Growing up, I was always so excited when my mom was making burgers for dinner because that meant homemade sweet potato fries. Also, my dad and I love ketchup on our scrambled eggs! (My mom always shakes her head in disgrace when we top our eggs with the sauce).

    As for mayo.. it’s always a great ingredient to put into cakes! Creates so much moisture and makes a cake so delish!

    So excited about this giveaway! The packaging is to die for.

  23. Gayle P on said:

    Ketchup & eggs are my favorite combo!

  24. Ashely Elrod from on said:

    OOO we’ve recently come into accepting dipping fries in mayo and it is delightful

  25. Danzel from on said:

    Ketchup on a quality veggie burger, mayo on fries – at least, lately!

  26. Mayonnaise goes great on our homemade kimchi poutine.

  27. ZeeZee from on said:

    I enjoy a ketchup and mayo combo for my fries. Sometimes I add in mustard or horseradish… After reading some of the earlier comments, I may have to try mayo alone on fries.

  28. Shawnna from on said:

    I usually don’t like ketchup – but I was inspired by your note yesterday that Jack hates ketchup but loved this stuff! My husband would be so proud of me if I started to eat ketchup regularly 😉 Plus, that chipotle mayo looks like it probably tastes like unicorn tears so I’m dying to try that.

  29. Tiffany on said:

    I love mixing ketchup with some curry powder and having it with sweet potato fries. Also, mixing mayo with some pesto makes a quick and easy spread for sandwiches!

  30. Emma on said:

    Ketchup on everything!

  31. Greta on said:

    Oh my gosh- everything looks so good! I’m from the Midwest, so my favorite way to enjoy ketchup is every way 🙂 But I am particularly fond of gratuitous ketchup with hot and gooey grilled cheese. For me, it’s the ultimate comfort food.

  32. Kayla on said:

    Dipped! That’s my favorite way. One of my good friends once said that food is a way to get dip into my mouth – I’d have to agree with her! Definitely going to try these fries!

  33. Johanna on said:

    I’m very much a ketchup and fries girl.

  34. ccbees on said:

    Ketchup cabbage rolls are one of my absolute favorite comfort foods. And my husband is loves a good mayo hollandaise over eggs!

  36. Natalya on said:

    Mayo in Pimento Cheese!

  38. Abby on said:

    Ketchup w/hot sauce is a must for breakfast items like eggs and hashbrowns.
    Yum yum!

  39. Beth on said:

    I used to eat ketchup on everything imaginable but it is my favorite with fries or on eggs/omelettes/egg and cheese sandwiches! P.s. The chipotle mayo featured looks amazing and I would eat that on everything!!!

  40. Sarah on said:

    I LOVE ketchup on veggie burgers and on roasted sweet potatoes!

  41. Marnely Rodriguez-Murray on said:

    I’m so addicted to mayo it’s not even funny! I love dipping my fries in it of course, but a dollop of mayo on jasmine rice is sublime as well!

  42. NardoLito on said:

    Favorite ways to enjoy mayo… mixed with yellow-hotdog mustard for dipping fries, or mixed with wasabi for dipping artichokes. Ketchup is fun mixed with sriracha or BBQ sauce!

  43. Kelly on said:

    It’s so cold & dreary now – I can’t help but fantasize about a thick slice of bread, toasted, with a yummy slather of mayo, topped with the most-perfect-just-picked-from-the-garden tomato & a bit of salt. YUM! I need it to be summer soon!

  44. Michelle on said:

    Always with fries! But an exciting flavor might change what I enjoy it on:). Thank u for the giveaway

  45. jacquie on said:

    in baked beans.

  46. Josh on said:

    Mayo. So much versatility with mayo.

  47. jamie on said:

    On a juicy hot dog!!!

  48. Halley on said:

    Oh, my favorite favorite is a trick I picked up from a great restaurant in Memphis – their burger comes with “secret sauce” which is just a combo of mayonnaise, mustard, and ketchup. There’s something about combining them directly that makes the burger (not to mention the fries) really sing!

  49. Irina from on said:

    I’m one of those people who put ketchup on everything! I can’t help it…I love it! Especially over eggs and potatoes.

  50. Mel on said:

    Homemade mac & cheese with some ketchup added just before eating! Yum!

  51. Jennifer from on said:

    I love ketchup on a baked potato (with cheddar cheese)!

    Fries for both! Ketchup on eggs, in stir-fries. Mayo for dipping artichokes!

  53. Barb on said:

    Mayo on a grilled turkey burger; grill the bun, too!

  54. I enjoy ketchup with carrot fries, but these parsnip fries look amazing!

  55. Katharine on said:

    I was never much of a french fries fan until I went to France and discovered that they dip them in mayo. Now the combination of the two of one of my favorite side-dishes. And the reminder of France is a bonus. 🙂

  56. jackie on said:

    A burger is not a burger without ketchup!

  57. I love ketchup on top of veggie burgers or for dipping roasted veggies. Mustard is amazing in any type of salad dressing and I would love to try these guys out! Beautiful parsnip fries are on my menu soon 🙂

  58. Amanda on said:

    It sounds so weird…and I actually have hated mayo until I discovered it:

    A perfectly toasted slice of good quality bread, a healthy slather of mayo, and thinly sliced perfect tomatoes…all topped with a bit of sea salt and tons of black pepper. So, so, so tasty!

    Umm. Yeah. I want to win this giveaway!

  59. kimber on said:

    The other day I tried something new to spice up my boring tuna packet snack… mayo with finely chopped wasabi nori, lime, and salt. YUM.

    As for ketchup, nothing is better than plain, bare naked ketchup with a piping hot plate of crispy fries!

  60. I like ketchup best on home fries, and of course fries. Your parsnip ones look fantastic. I’m a big fan of sweet potato fries too.

  61. coral on said:

    Well, I personally think a burger and fries is the best meal on earth (accompanied by a cold beer even!) but this winter I’ve been all about a quick “aioli,” mixing flavors into mayo, for dipping brussel sprouts into.

  62. Liz on said:

    We enjoy ketchup primarily on grilled summer sandwiches, and on extra crispy fries. Thank you so much for hosting this giveaway.

  63. Julie from on said:

    ketchup on eggs!

  70. Cassie on said:

    I love to blend mayonnaise and ketchup together with some hot pepper sauce as a dip for just about anything!

  71. Shannon Linton on said:

    When I was a kiddo, I loved ketchup on everything–rice, eggs, you name it. As an adult, I still love it, but now on more traditional items like burgers and fries.

  72. Cristy on said:

    My favorite way to eat mayo is spread thickly over wheat bread in a tomato sandwich.

  73. Serena on said:

    Mayo – love using some good mayo to make an aioli for fries or a sandwich
    Ketchup – I love it with super crispy onion rings (my hangover remedy)

    sriracha mayo + ketchup on a spicy veggie burger. and of course plenty of ketchup for the fries!

  75. Dana on said:

    Sorry to be traditional, but fries are the way to go.

  76. Carrie on said:

    I love ketchup on homemade fries… It’s the best!

  77. Kristie on said:

    I love a good mayo-based dipping sauce for fries! I’ve made parsnips like this before, but usually just used them as a salad topper – at least the ones I didn’t eat straight off the pan 🙂

  78. Jessica Van Luxemborg on said:

    As a mini meatloaf topper with mustard and brown sugar- yum!

  79. Emma on said:

    On french fries! A classic!

  81. Tina. on said:

    My favorite way to eat ketchup is with fries of any kind. I like (vegan) mayo on sandwiches mostly (tempeh bacon, sauerkraut, mayo is my favorite combo).

  82. Jen on said:

    Mayo: mixed with canned salmon, minced garlic, olive oil and spices—eaten with celery sticks
    Ketchup: mixed with sriracha—eaten with sweet potato fries

    I love to mix some adobo into my mayo and use it on sweet potato fries, burgers, and sandwiches.

  87. Bio from on said:

    With fries of course!

  88. Cate from on said:

    Is it bad that I LOVE to dip my fries in mayo? And I would eat it by the spoonful if it was appropriate! 🙂

  89. Charlotte on said:

    Mayo with a little adobo added is swell on any sweet potato or fish dish you can think of! I’m literally thinking right now and I can’t come up with a single thing. Especially, are you ready for this, fish tacos with sweet potato hash! Mmm…

  90. Mae on said:

    SPF…..SWEET POTATO FRIES. Hands down my favorite ketchup sidekick. I’m a ketchup girl through and through; add a plate of fries and I am golden. My boyfriend doesn’t like my mayo but he can’t get enough of Sir K’s chipotle stuff!

  91. Jonena from on said:

    Me: mayo and blt’s are the most amazing thing ever, otherwise, it’s best used sparingly. Husband: mayo makes everything the best thing ever. Our ketchup views are similarly opposite.

  92. Sini from on said:

    I’m so excited about this recipe! I’ve been on the lookout for new ways to use parsnip and I this sounds delicious. I’ll probably make this next week! Thank you for your ever inspiring posts.

  93. Ellie from on said:

    Ketchup is best eaten in the way it was originally intended – on fries! (preferably sweet potato, but I am willing to give parsnips a try!) And I love using mayo to make a garlic-lemon aioli – YUM.

    Are there any stores in Chicago that sell Sir Kensington’s?

  94. Emily L on said:

    Ketchup, mayo, and cheese over grilled corn, or ellote is one of my favorite foods when I am in Central America! 🙂

  95. Katie K on said:

    I love both drenching my Fries! Thanks for such a great giveaway! Love your site!

  98. katrina on said:

    ketchup and mayo mixed together with tots!

  100. Oh my gosh! I eat ketchup on EVERYTHING! What wouldn’t it go on, is more of the question! 🙂

  110. trisha from on said:

    wow these looks amazing! i would love to win them. great photos x

    With sweet potato fries– or on a spoon…

  117. cheyanne on said:

    Ketchup mixed with sriracha on EVERYTHING! Im crazy strange and even dip pototo chips, english muffins with cream cheese, scrambled egg whites, fried calamari…the obvious: fries, burgers, chicken strips. So yum as a mix in for meatloaf, BBQ sauce, etc. I am the self proclaimed “bubba gump” of ketchup 🙂

  118. Chris from on said:

    Truffle Aioli w/ Truffle Parmesan Sweet Potato Fries
    So simple, just as your fries! I do the same thing with sweet potatoes but use VOM FASS Truffle EVOO to coat. Just out of the oven, toss with a little more Truffle EVOO and shredded parmesan. Then for the aioli:
    3/4 cup mayonnaise
    3 VOM FASS Truffle EVOO
    ¾ teaspoon VOM FASS Truffle Salt
    ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
    Mix all and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  119. Myra on said:

    I love a 2:1 ratio of mayonnaise to ketchup on fries(﹡ˆ﹀ˆ﹡)

  120. Rachelle on said:

    Mayo is definitely best on a classic BLT. Fresh lettuce, fat tomato slices, and crispy bacon. Yummmmmmm.

  121. Katie Albert from on said:

    My favorite way to use a quality ketchup is atop a fabulous meatloaf!
    It’s not really a meatloaf without a fine ketchup topping.

  122. julia on said:

    sriracha. ketchup. eggs. hash browns.

    • julia on said:

      oh, and kimchi.

  123. Rena Leeda from on said:

    Nothing better than homemade meatloaf with ketchup!
    Also love to dip artichoke leaves in mayonnaise with a touch of lemon and mustard! Delish!!

  124. Stephanie on said:

    I love to slather ketchup on burgers of any kind and then add extra for dipping the burger in so each mouthful is full of ketchup!! Also, sometimes I just like to dip spicy pickles in ketchup. It’s a salty overload, but so good!

  125. Amy K on said:

    I love my mayo straight out of the jar but it’s great with fries too. I like ketchup on burgers with mayo of course. Even a piece of cheddar cheese is good with a bit of ketchup.

  126. Laura Wllder on said:

    I love ketchup with crispy hash browns. And all my sandwiches thrive on mayo.

  127. Mika on said:

    Grilled cheese dipped in ketchup, my ultimate comfort food!

  128. Lillian on said:

    I mix mayo with sriracha and garlic and spread it on veggie burgers or dip French fries in it, but ketchup is always a staple for fries and burgers too!!

  129. becca on said:

    My fav way to use mayo is in the summer. I like to spread if over corn on the cobb ( organic and non GMO of course:) then grill a few minutes on each side and finish with chili salt and fresh lime. OMG mouth watering. While you are grilling I also reccomend a nice glass of Sauv Blanc….just sayin;)

  130. linda romer on said:

    I love good olive oil mayo when making macaroni salad. Thank you cant wait to make your parsnip fries they look great!

  131. Rachel on said:

    Gotta go with the classic combos of ketchup with burgers, fries, and hot dogs. And I love mayo in potato salad or egg salad, and my husband and I like to combine mayo with fish sauce on our banh mi sandwiches!

  132. Mary Ann on said:

    Never too many condiments! I can’t wait to try these fries, sold on sweet potato fries but love root veggies. Pick me!

  135. Faith on said:

    I love French fries and I love ketchup. I don’t eat mayo that often, but if I do it’s usually garlic mayo with sweet potato fries. I love ketchup on a lot of foods, sometimes I make ketchup sandwiches, but my favorite is on a blue cheese stuffed beef burger.

  136. Both on fries, burgers, sandwiches! Yum!

  137. Kristin Alyse on said:

    Ever since I saw Sir Kensington’s Ketchup & Mayo on the Love and Lemons blog I have wanted to try it! I just moved to Indiana from Austin, TX and I’m dreading that we don’t have the epically large Whole Foods or their selection at our very small location here in South Bend. I can’t wait to try making these parsnip fries and maybe order some to use! I think my favorite use for mayo is in different dips and dressings – a little bit always goes a long way and can be complimented by so many other great flavors! Garlic, lemon, cayenne, you name it! I love using it in a spinach & artichoke dip I make for parties.

    Ketchup is the best condiment, great on faux-meats, french fries, veggie burgers, or my favorite unhealthy breakfast, classic shredded potato hash browns! I can’t wait to try their spicy ketchup on my favorite breakfast!

    Thanks so much for your great blog posts, I’ve made a few recipes now and I think your cashew “ricotta” is the best I’ve come across yet! Happy cooking 🙂 …and eating!

    • jeanine from on said:

      you’re so sweet thank you! Ha, I would be sad to leave our Whole Foods too :).

  138. Cora on said:

    My fave way to enjoy mayo is with sweet potato fries and a juicy burger.

  142. wefadetogray on said:

    With fries, definitely and with omelet! I will try this fries tomorrow for my husband!

  143. helical gnome on said:

    I put mayonnaise on absolutely everything, even before I try my food. Fries and ketchup, that’s my favorite, like everyone else. If I want to pimp a piece of bread, there goes ketchup and mayo. Love them.

  144. Celia Becker from on said:

    I love to cheat and use prepared mayo to make Aioli. I love Aioli on many things but on Chicken in particular. I also love parsnips and can’t wait to try them as fries. Thanks for the great idea!

  145. xtopher on said:

    Bread and mayonnaise. Eggs and mayonnaise. Meats and ketchup. Eggs and ketchup. Ketchup and mayonnaise mix together with sea food. Shall I continue? Gosh, now I am hungry. Thanks for this giveaway.

  146. Nicole on said:

    Ketchup swirled with a little bit of sriracha, used as a dipping sauce for grilled cheese… mm, the best! This is my mom’s go-to bad day food, everything always seems a little better afterwards.

  147. EmilyS on said:

    It may be cliche, but ketchup and mayo on a bacon-cheese-jalepeno burger (preferably from Crown & Anchor off Dean Keaton) is SO the way to go.

  148. Annie Block on said:

    I love ketchup on homemade sweet potato fries!

  149. Amanda on said:

    mayo in deviled eggs! ketchup on your parsnip fries!

  153. Jennifer from on said:

    i will drown mostly anything in ketchup; the only exception being McDonald’s hash browns.

    But mayo with a garlic chili sauce is the way to go for any dipping need!

  154. Yoojin from on said:

    This might sound completely strange but I love ketchup with eggs! My mom used to make me rice omlettes when I was a kid and I think that’s where I got it from! And for mayo… I love mixing it with sriracha and putting that on everything 🙂

  155. Linda Grothe on said:

    I love grilled chicken,cheese, avocado sandwich with mayo. It is scrumptious!
    Thank you

  156. Christina on said:

    love ketchup on eggs and fries; basically the usual.

    spicy mayo on chicken sandwiches and burgers!

  157. Barbara on said:

    Ketchup, mayonnaise? Both of these are great with curry. I make a veggie dip with mayo and curry (it’s also good with fruit) that is to die for. I also mix curry into ketchup to serve with fries or eggs. So warming and fulfilling.

  158. lacey on said:

    Ketchup on veggie burgers is my fave!

  159. MB from on said:

    Oh my, Sir Kensington is so cute… it would be so happy to have him looking at me whenever I open my fridge! I’m a mayo on fries gal (chipotle – yum…), and the spicy ketchup would give me a great excuse to make a meatloaf.

  160. Jay on said:

    Fries. Sometimes mixed with some horseradish and a squeeze of lemon, but always fries.

  161. susie hirschfeld from on said:

    Delish! I am envisioning a unique but oh-so-homey meatloaf to use the ketchup in before this wintry season ends! And the mayo on a grilled chicken sandwich…. ohmeohmy, I can’t wait for summer!

  162. Donna from on said:

    I like to make an aioli to dip grilled veggies or use on a sandwich. I like ketchup in barbecue sauce for baked beans or on a burger.

  163. deb on said:

    Mayo on fries…yum yum! But also perfect on egg sandwiches!

  164. Cadence on said:

    Omg! I just adore Sir Kensington’s ketchup! I don’t like ketchup normally but Sir Kensington’s is delicious. I usually fry up some crispy salt and pepper Dover sole fillets and dip them in it!

  165. Chelsea from on said:

    My Mom used to make us a dipping sauce with our fish sticks- it was an even ratio of ketchup to mayo with dill weed sprinkled on top. I still use it to this day for my fish sticks (today as a matter of fact) and I’m always looking for ways to kick it up a notch!

  166. qv on said:

    ketchup on white rice, crazy i know!!! : )

  167. Ilana on said:

    Lately I’ve jumped on the egg muffin bandwagon. They’re amazing! I make mine with spinach, carrots, and Morningstar Farms veggie sausage with ketchup on top of the finished baked product.

  168. Fanny on said:

    A BLT is not complete without a generous slather of mayo.

  169. Dhanya Samuel from on said:

    I mix up ketchup with a little mayo – perfect creamy dip for my buffalo wings.

  170. Janet on said:

    When I was in Jr High School, we would mix ketchup and mayo for fry dipping. I now prefer ketchup plain and even on veggies for a bit of extra umami zing. Ketchup is also good with a hint of Sriracha Mayo is good with a little lemon juice and dill mixed in.

  171. Margaret on said:

    Ketchup must be on the table for my mom’s homemade macaroni and cheese! I also love mayo and cracked black pepper on a simple tomato sandwich.

  172. AJ on said:

    I use ketchup a lot less than I did as kid when I put it on everything from mashed potatoes, to rice, to beans. My favorite way to use it now is to mix it with brown sugar, Sriracha, and dry mustard as a meatloaf topping. I also love it on hot dogs (no mustard for me) and burgers.

    I love mayo. I use it instead of ketchup as dip for fries, although sometimes I mix the two together. I love all kinds of creamy mayo-dressed salads like macaroni and potato and mayonnaise-based dressings are my favorites for green salads. Currently, my favorite way to use it is to add chopped chipotles in adobo and fresh lime juice to make a sauce for fish tacos.

  173. Varsha on said:

    I didn’t grow up eating ketchup or mayo but when I met my husband his love of ketchup and mayo with fries got me hooked. For office bbqs I sometimes make a slaw with chipotle mayo, lime and lots of red cabbage and veggies. I hope to try this brand soon!

  174. Kelly P on said:

    I love homemade sweet potato fries, fried potatoes and regular fries with fry sauce and/or salsa.

  175. Ana Sofia from on said:

    I actually tried Sir Kensington’s the other day and it was great. Still love mixing mayonnaise and ketchup for hot dogs which my mom did for us when were kids.

  176. Jessie from on said:

    I LOVE ketchup on cottage cheese…I also like to mix ketchup, mayo and relish…with a few extras, to make burger sauce!

  177. Alice M on said:

    I’m going to try the parsnip fries recipe later today – looks delicious! I actually enjoy making a combination of ketchup and mayo for my fries. Sometimes I add a little mustard to the mix too.

  178. Gina Guthrie on said:

    I like to dip my veggie burgers in a mix of ketchup and mustard.

  179. Melanie on said:

    The egg is the sole reason I could never be vegan. The egg has the widest repertoire of uses of any ingredient from merengue to custards, from omelets to soufflés. The egg is amazingly transformative, but i digress….. I could eat mayo with nearly anything, with ketchup a close second. So I love to mix the two together for an old fashioned “Rose Marie” sauce that I serve with grilled shrimp. I have just discovered this site, and I love your recipes and your blog. Thanks!

  180. shannon from on said:

    my favorite… mixing ketchup with sriracha… always!

    not a huge fan of mayo, but I like it mixed with chipotle… I sense a theme!

    thank you for your beautiful and inspiring work. I look forward to it every week!

    Ahhh the love and need of condiments and sauces in America…and I love it! I’ll never forget sitting at Bouchon restaurant in Yountville, CA eating pomme frittes with a rich aioli/mayonnaise and glass of crisp bubbly when my French friend blurts out “oh you Americans need a sauce with everything”! And isn’t that true and I’m proud of it! See below on how I love ketchup and mayo.

    Mayonnaise: *Growing up we would dip our asparagus or artichokes in straight mayonnaise (simple, yet a perfect combo). *I also make an amazing roasted mushroom dip for parties bc its a twist on the same old artichoke dip you see at every party. I roast mushrooms (my preference is cremini, shitake and oyster, but any will do), caramelize a sweet onion, mix 1/2 cup of mayo with grated gouda, triple cream cheese (St. Agur is what I use typically) and parmesan. Mix the mushrooms and onions with the mayonnaise/cheese mixture and chopped thyme (frozen spinach can also be added). Bake for 25 minutes on 350. Serve with warm crusty bread and a glass of Pinot Noir and you are set! *Another simple way to showcase mayonnaise is to mix mayo with tarragon, lemon and whole grain mustard. Serve with grilled shrimp or with a crab cake. You can also mix this into tuna or smoked salmon.

    Ketchup: *Perfect with fried okra…yes please! *A way to fancy up a basic ketchup to wow your friends and burger is to roast a peeled red apple and puree the apple with ketchup, sirancha and touch of smoked paprika. This will hold for 7 days and is also perfect on meat loaf, roasted potatoes and a great base for homemade BBQ sauce!
    Bon Appetite and Enjoy! ~Trish the Dish

  182. Danny from on said:

    What can be said about ketchup and mayo that hasn’t already been said? Well, for one, try ketchup outside of just food. Maybe rub it on your skin as a lotion. Try putting mayo under your eyes to reduce puffiness. Combine the two together, with a few raw eggs, for a morning smoothie after a hard workout.

  183. I love mixing the two to create a delicious and rich fry sauce…

  184. mel goodrich on said:

    I love good mayo on every single sandwich burger and on fries… and while i like catsup on fries as well, it is necessary for fried shrimp.

  185. courntey on said:

    mayo with garlic and lemon on almost anything!

  186. Emily on said:

    I love ketchup mixed with spicy mustard! Then I dip my fries in it!

  187. Jessica on said:

    Ketchup might just be my favorite condiment, period. I’ve been making a ton of sweet potato fries lately- smothered in ketchup! I’ve also been mixing a little sriracha and ketchup to add a little pick-me-up to fried eggs over hash…. Its addicting!

  188. k on said:

    I know it’s strange, but my Mom used to make me peanut butter and mayo sandwiches. Good if you add a bit of Sriracha, too.

  189. diana v. on said:

    I rarely use ketchup & mayo just kind of weirds me out.
    That being said….I would love to try these & maybe change my condiment selections in the future.
    Thanks for all the great recipes & ideas….love your site…

  190. Julie on said:

    I like my ketchup and mayonnaise mixed! I’ve heard it’s a midwestern thing, but this southern girl loves it.

  191. Tess on said:

    ALL the forms of potato but most particularly sweet potato fries!!

  192. sydney from on said:

    My favourite way to eat ketchup is in macaroni and cheese! I bet these ketchups would be awesome.

  193. Karen Larsen on said:

    For years I have used ketchup- either store-bought or home-made- as the base for a quickie “just got home and I can’t face cooking for just me” salad dressing on the nights when my sweetie isn’t there. They hate the dressing. Ketchup, balsamic vinegar, and whatever fresh herb I have- like basil or cilantro or mint. Maybe a splash of fresh lemon or lime juice. Fabulous!

    My favorite use of mayo is on toasted home-made anadama bread, under fresh sliced tomatoes out of the garden, which are sprinkled with a good lemony (as opposed to too salty) lemon-pepper. Mmmmmmmm.

  194. Kate on said:

    Love mayonnaise on a wrap!

  195. I love eating ketchup with eggs and spam fried rice! Thank you for the giveaway!

  196. Emily on said:

    I love a using mayo as a base for dipping fries or making homemade mayo and using it on sandwiches.

  197. Sarah from on said:

    I’ll be honest, I’ll eat mayo on quiet a bit of stuff… Mayonnaise and cheese sandwiches, mayonnaise on french fries, mayonnaise salads, you name it. Ketchup however is strictly a love affair with fries.

  198. Holly from on said:

    Mayo on cheeseburgers! Sooooo goooood.

  199. Chris on said:

    Ketchup? Hands down the meatloaf topper and crusty-top Mac and cheese.
    Mayo? Hands-up for chipotle mayo atop a burger!

  200. Ivana on said:

    Love ketchup with fries, classic!

  201. artichokey on said:

    mayo instead of butter on a grilled cheese – so crispy!

  202. Thetraveller on said:

    I love Ketchup with Passion and Habanero Mustard. Yum Yum! I eat fries and vegetarian burgers with this. No bread or cheese required. It is to die for. It is perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

  203. Fraida from on said:

    with fries 🙂

  204. Valerie on said:

    Ketchup on fries, mayo on burgers!

  205. Carolyn B from on said:

    Mayo cut with sour cream or plain greek yogurt and lemon for aioli for an artichoke! Ketchup on a burger of course! Can’t wait to try these parsnip fries.

  206. Iglika from on said:

    As a lot of people, I love mixing ketchup and mayo together. If you add some chopped pickles, is even better – I dip anything in it, but with fries is especially good. Another favorite of mine is mixing mayo with yellow curry powder. Yum!

  207. deena hofstad on said:

    mayo and ketchup combo for fries and just ketchup for burgers. their product looks delicious. would love to try it!

  208. Carolsue on said:

    I use ketchup on my fries, battered fish, meatloaf, eggs and tons of other things. I use mayo mostly on sandwiches and potato salad.

  209. Corisa Jubinsky on said:

    Mayo always completes a great fast food burger!

  210. marisa from on said:

    I love adding a little sriracha to my ketchup!

  211. Calli on said:

    I love ketchup on fries and sometimes with hashbrowns!

  212. Rachael on said:

    ALWAYS with chicken salad sandwich (mayo) and ketchup…on some meatloaf …and the OBVI–FRIES (avec sea salt of course)

  213. Sara on said:

    I like ketchup best with (homemade) fries as well!

    french fries and ketchup, forever and ever.

  215. elaine from on said:

    with onion rings

  216. Emily L on said:

    I love ketchup on fries! I use mayo usually in tuna or chicken salads 🙂

  217. Brenda M. on said:

    Hot dogs and corn dogs. I was shocked to find out on my first trip to Chicago that some people consider this sacrilegious, but without ketchup, I wouldn’t bother with hot dogs or corndogs. With ketchup, they are transformed to something beyond the sum of their parts!

  218. maria s from on said:

    ketchup + wholegrain mustard +thyme and plenty of black pepper. This is a sensational upgrade for your normal fries 🙂

  219. Heather M on said:

    Dad’s secret: little bit of mayo on the homemade bacon egg and cheese sandwich. Sounds weird. So delicious 🙂

  220. Abbe on said:

    Mayo: a thin layer on a piece of toast, topped with salt and pepper and a fresh-from-the-garden tomato slice

    Ketchup: with french fries, of course!

    Thanks for the generous giveaway!

  221. Bianca on said:

    I actually LOVE ketchup as an alternative to hollandaise sauce for my poached eggs: the sweet tang of the ketchup goes great with a gooey poached egg and some sautéed spinach and onions on a toasted english muffin. YUM!

  222. Monika from on said:

    My favorite mayo is chipotle mayo – on turkey burgers, maybe with some sweet potato fries? Ketchup on any burger, a pretty classic choice, is my favorite.

  223. Christina on said:

    Oh my goodness, Sir Kensington’s is my favorite ketchup. I received some from Santa the past two years, and of course went through it quickly. I love it on homemade sweet potato fries, or a Spanish tortilla!

  224. Megan A. on said:

    How yummy does these ketchups and mayos look? I’m pretty old fashioned when it comes to my ketchup, mostly fried things like fries, onion rings, etc… Especially since living in Chicago – ketchup is forbidden on hot dogs! Mayonnaise is a new love for me, so I’m experimenting with aiolis, and slaws.

  225. JC from on said:

    The combo of mayo & Ketchup slathered on a burger, like we are talking drowning in it is like my heaven.

  226. Kamilla G. on said:

    Oh, my goodness, that Sir Kensington packaging is gorgeous! And the condiments sound amazing, too – I just love it when someone nails both the packaging and the food. <3 My favourite way of using mayo is mixing it with a little garlic and some truffle oil, and then dipping sweet potato fries in it. YUMMY! Would LOVE to try these beauties. I am actually yet to try chipotle mayo of any kind, and feel it really is about time.

  227. Lee Ann on said:

    I love mayonnaise on fries! I’ll have to test out these parsnip fries, they sound excellent! Ketchup is not one of my faces, but my partner has never met one she doesn’t like. She’s a ketchup & mayo mixer too.

  228. itzia on said:

    i love ketchup with fries, hotdogs, and burgers.

  229. Isadora from on said:

    I love adding lemon juice, hot sauce, and a few spices to mayonnaise to use as a great sauce for tacos! I also make homemade baked french fries very often and always enjoy them with ketchup!

  230. Megan from on said:

    WOW, these look divine. French fries are one of my favorite foods, and I sometimes wonder if it’s just because they are the perfect ketchup-delivery system!

  231. Markie on said:

    I love fries with mayo every since I tried it in London! Ketchup and mayo in my burger of course.

  232. Sammy from on said:

    i loveeee ketchup on my fries, i can’t eat it without it.
    and the only time i really love mayo or veganaise when i’m being vegan is macaroni salad in the summer time.. amazing.

  233. marisa p. on said:

    egg & ketchup. No contest!

  234. Holly on said:

    I love ketchup on sweet potatoe fries and mayo in a aioli sauce for tuna patties!

  235. Christine on said:

    I love super cold ketchup and super hot crispy fries. Mayo and tuna just go together for me like peas and carrots. YUM!!

  236. amanda on said:

    Ah, mayonnaise…the nectar of the gods. Fave uses include chicken salad and pimiento cheese. It is an amazing condiment – a little goes a long way. And ketchup is perfect for dunking grilled cheeses into. Don’t judge. 🙂

  237. Michael on said:

    When I was a kid I always ate my pork chops with ketchup. Although sometimes I just ate ketchup on its own, too…

  238. Roxanne on said:

    I love mixing Sriracha in mayonnaise! Tastes great on a black bean burger.

  242. Becky N. on said:

    I love mayo in an avocado egg salad sandwich.

  243. Maria on said:

  244. Maya on said:

    Hmmm… steak tartare and frites allumettes with mayo. Delicious.

  245. veronica from on said:

    wow, those condiments are gorgeous, and I love parsnips!! I’ll be making some of these fries tonight 🙂

  246. Erika on said:

    Mayo is absolutely necessary for egg salad – and I love ketchup with hot sauce and fries…or even better, crispy hash browns.

  247. Jona from on said:

    I like to mix mayo with sriracha for a spicy sauce for sushi!

  248. I love a mixture of ketchup and mayo for sweet potato fries!

  249. Kate on said:

    Clearly ketchup is best with grilled cheese!

  250. Melissa on said:

    That chipotle mayo sounds delicious for dipping fries!

  251. Leah on said:

    Potatoes. Especially in french fried form. They’re just so good. Or mixed with sriracha on a tofu scramble.

  252. I’m a ketchup girl myself, and fries are definitely my favorite ketchup vehicle 🙂 yum!! These fries looks phenomenal – and your photos are gorgeous. Pinned!

  253. Candice on said:

    My favorite way to use ketchup is in homemade cocktail sauce! Adding in lemon juice and horseradish with some ground black pepper; it is so fresh and a great compliment to the old fashioned shrimp cocktail. Much better than bottled cocktail sauce.

  254. lauren on said:

    sweet potato fries with mayo is my favorite indulgence!

    yay for Friday fries!

  255. Susanne on said:

    Ketchup and Mayo mixed together, some Port wine and greek yoghurt is a delicious sauce for my shrimp appetizer with fresh pineapple and papaya…

    I like dipping my sweet potato fries with a combination of ketchup and siracha.

  259. SL on said:

    I actually just discovered Sir Kensington’s Spiced Ketchup a few months ago. Perfect with baked sweet potato fries and a burger!

  260. Portia Miranda on said:

    Hot Sicilian Sandwich with Ketchup!

    My family is known for this sandwich and ketchup is the perfect condiment. Basically it’s a grilled cheese sandwich on sourdough bread but add pepperoni and Canadian bacon inside. Also after spreading butter on the outside of the sandwich, sprinkle a good amount of Parmesan cheese. It creates a great crust and flavor. After grilling dip in ketchup! Yuuuum!!!

  261. Katie on said:

    My favorite use for ketchup is on a black bean burger. For fry-dipping I love garlic aioli or a spicy mayo.

  262. Komal on said:

    These sound great, would love to try them !!
    I love using mayonaise to make different aioli for sandwiches, and mixing ketchup and mayo to go with fries.

  263. Rebecca on said:

    I love ketchup with my baked sweet potato fries and with my vegan tamales with cactus in them. I know, I was raised eating ketchup on tamales. I do not eat dairy so no mayo please.

  264. Debbie on said:

    I love Ketchup on fried potatoes and those parsnips look wonderful, maybe with a dip made of ketchup and Mayo.

  265. Tova on said:

    I like to eat mayo with french fries! Or to make a thousand island sauce for a portabella burger!

  266. Amy on said:

    I’m a sucker for some crispy salty french fries with both mayo and ketchup. Never tried mayo with your french fries? You are missing out. It’s sinfully good.

  267. Emily on said:

    I used to hate both condiments, but then I grew up and tried the good stuff. Now, I love both on the classic–french fries.

  268. Rachel on said:

    Both mixed together on a veggie burger!!

  269. Shannon on said:

    The only way I would eat mayo as a kid was with salmon off the BBQ and I still think that is the best way!

    Ketchup is essential for so many things. It’s a toss up between grilled cheese or rotisserie chicken on a picnic

  270. Michelle T on said:

    I like to add a little ketchup to ratatouille. It’s my mother in law’s recipe, and it’s scrumptious. Sautéed peppers, eggplant, carrots, tomato sauce, onions, garlic, and cilantro. The ketchup brings all the flavors out somehow.

  271. Bec on said:

    Mayo is my FAV! It’s great plain as a fry dip, or mixed with a little brown mustard and curry powder.

    My husband can’t live without Ketchup – we love to mix it with mayo and curry as well for a super yum fry dip – something we learned from a German restaurant we frequent.

  272. Colleen N on said:

    We’ve been enjoying an addicting combination of sriracha and mayo, mixed in a nice spicy ratio, and kept in a squeeze bottle for ease of drizzling. We love it on everything savory, especially when paired with miso dressing or in sushi rolls. Yum!

  273. Kristen on said:

    Ketchup on fries is the best! Mayo is pretty great, too, especially on sweet potato fries!

  274. Sarah on said:

    Ketchup is best served with fries, and mayo is a must on BLT’s!

  275. Kelly G. on said:

    With sweet potato fries and a turkey burger!

  276. Katherine on said:

    Love it on a burger. Grilled, of course!

  277. Whitney on said:

    I like ketchup on eggs – especially if it is spicy ketchup. Mayo is delicious on grilled sandwiches (which in my case are veggie burgers or chick’n patties).. and I am super sad that I can’t try the chipotle mayo in this post! (Garlic allergies are no fun)

  278. Jen from on said:

    I love mayonnaise in chicken salad with just a touch of sour cream. And nothing beats ketchup on sweet potato fries!

  279. Jess from on said:

    I like mayo best on a bahn mi! A local Vietnamese place makes the best sandwich with a homemade mayo. So good!

  280. Jen S. from on said:

    So yum… Mayo goes in my chickpea salad or to make “sauces” for wraps or nachos or sushi! Spicy ketchup? Now that goes on everything, eggs and tater tots especially.

  281. Sarah Heat on said:

    I think for this, I’d go for fry sauce- ketchup plus mayo. Looks delicious!

  282. Cara-Mia from on said:

    What an awesome giveaway! Hmm my favorite way to enjoy mayo is chipotle mayo on shrimp tacos. Yummmmm.

  283. courtney on said:
