Something to Do with Leftover French Fries
From the Vault: No time to write a post today, I’m spending some quality time with one of my nieces. But in the spirit of keeping reader interest here’s an oldie.
Something To Do With Leftover: French Fries
I can hear you all now; “Bob, what exactly are leftover french fries?” And I’ll admit, I had a hard time with it when I realized that’s what I had. But I had ordered a plate from a local sub shop (sandwich, salad and fries) and the fries were… well, they were squishy. My thoughts on squishy vegetables are well known and that extends to fries. Fries should be crispy, preferably very. So I tossed them in a ziploc bag, then into the fridge and figured something would come to me, eventually. I woke up the next day with this in my head.
What, you ask, was “this”? Well, it was… er, this.
I chopped up the fries and took some crispy bacon, an egg, sauteed onion and parsley.
Mixed it all together
and dropped it into a preheated nonstick pan. There was more than I thought there would be so I formed it into two big patty thingies. Then I fried them till they were crispy, brown and delightful. And ate it. It was wicked good. So if you ever find yourself with some leftover fries (or order too many by “accident”) this is a great thing to do with them. I mean c’mon, what’s not to like? A little cheese would have been good, too… (Editors note: and sriracha!)
