Great Greek flavors are present in every bite!
The Greek Fries are the perfect excuse to have french fries for dinner. Notice, I said fries FOR dinner and not with dinner. We rarely get to have fries as the main meal. That is generally seen as a big no-no. Although I will confess that on numerous occasions in my 20’s I had a huge bucket of Pen Station fries as my main meal. That was back when my metabolism was as fast and the pace of my days was slow.
As a mom, I feel guilty if I don’t serve my family a protein and veggies with their meals. Although believe me, they’d be completely happy with just carbs for dinner. If I set a giant bucket of fries on the dinner table, my kids would cry out in equal parts joy and disbelief. But setting out a bucket of fries for my would be just nonsense. Setting down a dish of fries with beef, lamb, veggies and feta cheese, on the other hand, would be brilliant!
This Greek Fries recipe is an exceptionally simple recipe. I do cheat a little and use frozen French fries. I would give you double high 5’s if you want to make your own. If you are making Greek Fries, you have to use lamb. I used ground lamb that I mixed with ground beef (the beef tempers the flavor of the lamb) and then placed this over my fries. From there, anything goes. I topped my Greek fries with tomatoes, olives. feta and parsley. Pepperoncini, zucchini, artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes would also be a great additions. A simple tzatziki sauce is served on the side.
