Hello 🙂 and how was everyone’s weekend? I do hope that everyone had a lovely one 🙂 Let’s talk a bit about French Fries, the Dutch do love their fries, and toppings, from Mayo to Curry to well let’s say they even have a Peanut Butter type of sauce which I tried when I first came here and really was not a fan of it. The Dutch deep fry the potatoes twice, making them have an even crispier texture than just frying them the way do at home. The last time I actually bought fries from a stand was about 2 years ago..a very very long time. 🙂
This weekend’s meal plan had to be very very simple, just a couple of salads, along with omelettes and fries. We were painting one of the hallway’s and it took more time than expected and so cooking needed to be simple. I sometimes make different shapes when making French Fries because I just like trying out new things. Some of the shapes are round, moon, donut shaped. 🙂 Yep, donut shaped with a hole in the middle. 🙂
I made just a small portion for my husband because I did my cheating from my diet on Friday. The only thing I added to these fries were Oregano and Salt, this gave the fries a more Greek traditional taste, rather than topping them off with Mayo or Ketchup. But when the fries were ready and I served them I saw that he separated the fries in half, topping the other have with Mayo and Ketchup!!! hahahaha There is also one more thing about these fries that I would like to mention, they could not get any crispier!!!!
Have a great week everyone 🙂

In the same sauté pan add in Vegetable oil along with the Olive Oil, and heat from medium to high.

These delicious crunchy little french fries taste delicious with just a sprinkle of Oregano and Salt, but you could always add your favorite toppings.
