Fries: Five Ways

“Would you like fries with that?” We know we would; who wouldn’t want a meal without fries – or chunky chips, even? Today on the My Appliances blog, then, we’re sharing fries five ways, to give you some inspiration ahead of tea time. Read on…

French Fries

Like your fries traditional and simple – yet still oh so tasty? Here’s a recipe for French Fries you simply won’t want to pass up. Try this and you’ll ‘end up with lightly golden, crisp fries’, says BBC Good Food, adding ‘They’re great as a snack or side dish to a Friday night feast’.

At 317 calories per portion, they’re a substantial addition to your evening meal or grazing board, too.

Loaded Fries

Traditional fries are nice, but we see them…and we raise you loaded fries – deliciousness in a dish! Taste Au has this tasty-looking recipe for loaded fries, which features caramelised onion and chorizo – find the recipe here.

Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potato fries have been a big trend in the world of food for a while, haven’t they? With fewer calories than regular fries, they’re just as tasty – and go great with a burger or hot dog. The Simply Recipes site has a method for oven-baked sweet potato fries – and we think you’ll be raring to give it a go.

These oven baked sweet potato fries are so addictive, says the team behind the site! ‘Wedges of sweet potatoes, tossed with oil, sprinkled with spices, and baked at high heat until browned and crispy at the edges.’ They sound yummy, don’t they?

Copycat Five Guys’ Cajun Fries

Who here loves a burger and fries from fast food chain, Five Guys? We do – and now you can recreate their Cajun fries at home, if you want to. Try out the recipe for the copycat fries and see if you enjoy them as much as the Five Guys’ version. We reckon they will be a good alternative for a fraction of the price; see what you think.

Zucchini Fries

What’s a zucchini, you might ask. It’s a courgette to you and me – and it’s capable of transforming into a delicious plate of fries. Yes, honest! Get the recipe here and try this relatively healthy and delicious treat. The recipe ‘hits all the salty, crispy, savory notes you crave. No deep fryer is required, and swapping a starch for a vegetable makes them slightly more virtuous (because, you know, swimsuit season).’
