Frico Cheese Fry
with Onion and Potatoes
Frico cheese fry with onion and potatoes is a speciality from Friuli Venezia Giulia, where it is normally served as a substantial starter.
A visit to Udine is not complete without a frico cheese fry. The local speciality relies heavily on the DOC protected Montasio cheese that has been produced in the Carnic Alps since the 1300 century. Apart from the cheese, ingredients vary from village to village and from person to person. This version with onions and potatoes resembles the one we had at the Trattoria Al Marinaio in Udine. It looks like something you’d wish you’d never seen, but it tastes fantastic – if you like oozy cheese with crunchy edges.
