Instead of Regular Ol’ French Fries…

Carrot Fries!

11393198_10153290226051183_3865515364147197180_nHealthy, easy, and crazy good. Peel and julienne (see pic if you’re not familiar) organic carrots.  Lay out on baking sheet.  Slathered in pasture butter and sprinkle with garlic salt and dill. Roast at 350* for 30 minutes. Done.

Fried Potatoes with Onions

Slice potatoes thin.  Saute in deep sauté pan over high heat in a spoonful of bacon fat.  Add onions about 1/2 way through.  Sprinkle with salt.  When potato slices start getting crisp and dark brown, add 1 t. or so of minced garlic.  Saute another minute or so to blend flavors and remove from heat.  Serve with organic ketchup or pile up and top with cultured sour cream and chopped green onion if you’re feeling fancy.

Crispy Asian Green Beans

Jazzed Up Easy Fries

Cook one bag of Alexa’s Natural Cut French Fries according to package directions.  (Not my fave because they’re prepared with canola oil…yuck…but not the worst you can do.)  Remove from oven and immediately top with 2 c. shredded cheese, fried bacon bits, chopped green onions.  Serve with organic ketchup or hot sauce and cultured sour cream.
