I have a tendency to get in a rut with side dishes this time of year. In the rush to get dinner served between school and sports, I often turn to simple grilled veggies, roasted asparagus, or a simple salad, which can leave my French fry-loving kids feeling a little slighted.
So every couple weeks, I pick up a few bags of Alexia Fries and everything is right in their world again!
Our favorite is a toss-up between the sweet potato fries and the waffle cut fries. They always bake to a crispy and delicious perfection, with just the right amount of seasoning — but they’re also the perfect base to try something a little new and different, like these Parmesan Garlic Waffle Fries drizzled in ranch dressing.
As I was rummaging around in the refrigerator the other day, I noticed that I had some shredded Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley to use up, and I couldn’t help but think they’d be delicious over the waffle fries along with a little garlic powder. Alexia Waffle Fries are already seasoned with a blend of salt, pepper, onion and garlic, so this “recipe” just highlights the already great taste.
Add in some ranch dressing (which I always eat with my fries in lieu of ketchup), and this is a super quick and simple side dish that easily doubles as an after school snack or game day appetizer!
