Definition: Luie Wijven Friet are thick-cut fries made from unpeeled potatoes. This variation on Vlaamse friet (classic thick-cut Flemish fries) have gained popularity in recent years as a side dish or snack in Dutch restaurants.

The phrase luie wijven friet translates as 'lazy wives' fries', presumably because the potatoes are prepared with the skin on.
