Whether you call them poutine or disco fries, one thing’s for sure: These 15 options are LOADED! Whip up a platter and gather up your friends and family, these fries were meant for sharing.

1. Loaded Greek Sweet Potato Fries: You might be surprised that these fries loaded up with spiced lamb meat, tzatziki sauce, fresh tomatoes, feta and pickled onions are actually healthy. The key is a base of nutrient-dense sweet potato sticks that are baked, not fried. (via Our Four Forks)

5. Indian-Style Poutine: You’ll need a well-stocked spice cabinet for this recipe, but trust that it’s worth it.
