How To Make Greek Fries
STEP ONE – I start this recipe by baking up waffle fries. I used waffle fries for this recipe and I cooked them according to the package directions. You could use your favorite brand or even your favorite fry shape (wedges would be wonderful). I thought the waffles fries did a nice job of “holding” all the ingredients.
STEP TWO – While the fries are baking, brown ground beef and lamb in a skillet until crumbled and cooked through. If the lamb has too strong of a flavor, substitute all ground beef or you could use ground pork instead. Drain the meat mixture.
STEP THREE – When the fries are done, place them in a skillet or a platter and cover the fries with the crumbled meat. Arrange chopped tomatoes, olives, crumbled feta cheese over the meat.
STEP FOUR – Prepare a simple tzatziki sauce and serve it on the side.
- Want more flavor? To make these fries more filling and flavorful, cook chopped zucchini, squash, onions, and peppers with ground beef.
- Topping ideas. Top the Greek fries with banana peppers, cucumbers, sun-dried tomatoes, garbanzo beans, and even artichoke hearts.
- Vegetarian ideas. Keep the Greek fries vegetarian, by sauteing zucchini, squash, garbanzo beans, and peppers, then top the fries as per the original instructions.
What Seasoning Do I Use For Greek Fries?
I always have a premade Greek seasoning blend in my pantry. I use a brand called Spiceologist, but McCormick makes a Greek seasoning too. If you cannot find premade seasoning, use equal parts basil, oregano, and thyme.
How Long Are Leftover Greek Fries Good For?
These fries can be kept stored in an airtight container in the fridge for about 3 days. They taste best the same day they are prepared but they can be just as tasty when reheated.
How To Reheat Greek Fries
The best way to eat Greek fries is to place them in a 350-degree oven for 10-15 minutes or until the desired temperature. Keep in mind, that the feta and the vegetables will become soft, including the potatoes in the center.
