Traditional New Orleans French Fry Po-Boy

New Orleanians love their po-boy sandwiches – locally baked French bread stuffed with any number of cold cuts or fried seafood – but the simple french-fry po-boy still reigns as the original comfort food meal. It’s traditionally dressed with lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise and pickle with the option to be drenched in brown gravy.
