Try This: Feta Fries
You’ll have to excuse the silly snapshot. Our feta fry dinner (yes, dinner) was thrown together and quickly devoured at approximately 10 p.m. following a very long day. We usually appreciate somewhat more balanced Quick and Easy Weeknight Meals, but as a once-in-awhile treat, a plateful of fries, sweet potatoes, and feta cheese really hit the spot.
We first tasted this combination of hot fries tossed with crumbled feta and oregano at a local Greek festival, though we’re not sure whether it’s native to Greece or a stateside invention. Fried potatoes are satisfying to begin with, but salty, creamy feta takes them to a whole new level. For our version, we also added sweet potato fries for a boost of color and flavor (and perhaps nutritional value).
In addition to the potatoes and cheese, all it takes to round out the dish is a sprinkle of dried oregano and an optional squeeze of lemon. No recipe required, but here are a couple in case you’d like a guide:
Actually, we might take back what we said about this being a once-in-awhile treat…
