(LEX 18) — Make sure your ketchup and salt are close at hand because it's National French Fry Day!

Ranch dressing, vinegar, mayonnaise, and cheese are among the many other condiments also used for fries.

For those who would like a healthier option, sweet potatoes can also be made into fries.

The phrase "french-fried potatoes" made its debut in English print in E. Warren's "Cookery for Maids of all work."

According to urban legend, the term "French Fries" came from American soldiers who landed in Belgium during World War I.
