Hi All! This is more of a tip than a recipe, but sometimes it falls into the recipe category.
Well I am sure I’m not the only one who feels this way, but I really don’t like wasting things. Especially food. I do end up throwing away more then I’d like to admit and I find myself literally apologizing to the Lord as I’m dumping out yet another container of left-overs that we didn’t use up.
This tip is for the mountain of french fries that get left behind from a dinner out. It seems as though some restaurants give you a plate of fries that surely came from the entire ten pound bag of potatoes! It pains me to leave behind so many fries, because unless I’ve missed a trick, fries are just awful in the microwave. So here is what I do now…
Cut the fries into cubes. pour enough cooking oil into a large skillet to coat the bottom of the pan. Dice up some onion and some green,red, yellow, or orange bell peppers (or all three if you’d like) and toss those in as well. Saute’ them until heated through, on medium low heat.
They are so yummy in a hash like this… much better then the microwave and you no longer have to leave all those lonely fries on the table! Hope you get a chance to try this. It’s a great excuse to have a date night with your spouse or a lunch date with a friend.
