My kids love fries. Who doesn’t! But sometimes you just hate the fact that they can easily finish a whole portion of fast food French fries in a heartbeat. And you wish you could make them at home. You know, just to make the whole thing that little bit healthier.
I cook a lot. And I do make home-made fries. Which means having to contend with the annoying tasks of peeling and cutting potatoes. Not to mention the long baking time it requires in the oven. Sometimes these drawbacks put me off the idea of making fries altogether, with the result that my kids will start hating me – all of a sudden I AM AWFUL!
I came across with a solution recently – McCain® Superfries! Honestly, if there is a food saviour, this is the one! Imagine your kids start nagging that they want to go to a fast food restaurant, and you are trying to persuade them to stay home because something magical is going to happen, like within 15 minutes. Boom! A bowl of home-made fries freshly emerge from the oven! And I am not even joking, 15 minutes is all it takes. No peeling. No cutting. You don’t have to worry about the fact that you forgot to buy potatoes last week! Cause what you have to do is to take that bag of McCain® Superfries from the freezer, place them on a baking sheet and bake.
And here’s where home-made fries can be even more fun: You can Modifry Your Superfries. Add a touch of chili powder or paprika for some spice lovers, like myself. Or a sprinkle of Parmesan for my kids. Or add some herbs from your garden, make some dips to go with them… Oh, when it comes to ideas, the sky is the limit!
