  • 2 lbs Whole celery root peeled, and cut into 2-inch by 1-inch batons
  • Fat of choice
  • Salt and seasonings of choice
  • Oil for frying
  • ¼ cup Parmesan optional


  • Lightly toss the celery root in the fat of your choice, I use bacon grease.
  • In a large saute pan or deep fat fryer, heat oil.
  • When the oil is hot, add the celery root fries, carefully not to overcrowd the fries.
  • Fry on one side until golden, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Turn over and continue frying until done about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a paper-lined plate.
  • Season to taste with salt and whatever other seasonings you like.
  • Garnish with the Parmesan. (optional)


The carb-count on this recipe is for a ½ pound appetizer-sized serving. If you're making this for yourself as a snack, I would cut down the portions size by at least half.
