These Greek Fries can be served as a meal with a salad or as an appetizer.
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 family would be just nonsense.
Setting down a dish of fries with beef, lamb, veggies and feta cheese, on the other hand, would be brilliant!
How To Make Greek Fries
I start this recipe by baking up waffle fries. I used Alexa brand and cooked them according to the package directions. You could use your favorite brand or even your favorite fry shape (wedges would be wonderful).
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.
When the fries are done, cover with the crumbled meat the top fries with chopped tomatoes, olives, crumbled feta, and olives.
I like to make a simple tzatziki sauce and serve it on the side.
How To Modify Greek Fries
To make these fries more filling and flavorful, cook chopped zucchini, squash, onions and peppers with the ground beef.
Top the Greek fries with banana peppers, cucumbers, sun-dried tomatoes, garbanzo beans, and even artichoke hearts.
Keep the Greek fries vegetarian, by sauteing cucumber, 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 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.
