Curly Fries

A SPIRALIZER can make light work the next time you desire to add potato fries to your meal.


Whether you choose regular or sweet potatoes, the spiralizer can turn out spiraled potatoes in  seconds.  How you choose to cook them is chef's choice!

I personally opt for the most simple recipe, which is to peel the potato (here I am using a sweet potato),

AND simply spray with a little olive oil, and sprinkle on some paprika and a little salt.  


Then, bake in a 400 degree oven for around 20 minutes, depending on how soft or crispy you desire your curly fries to be.



I like a little crunch, and even like to use the crunchy, curly baked sweet potatoes as a salad topping (if there are any leftover!)

Here there were not, as I sat at my computer finishing off the bowl!  


So Delicious, I could not stop!!  Fortunately, this method of baking is low fat and very nutritious!  This half of a sweet potato is only 90 calories and is loaded with Vitamin A and fiber.


BUT IF YOU WANT THE TASTE OF A REAL "ARBY" CURLY FRY, here is another recipe you might want to try.

    1.5 tsp salt

    Bring a medium sized pot of water to boil.

    Cut potatoes into curly fries using a spiralizer.

    Put potatoes in boiling water and boil for 3 minutes.

    Rinse potatoes off in a colander with cold water.

    Dry potatoes with paper towels and set aside.

    Combine paprika, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper and flour in a small bowl.

    Add in egg and milk and mix well.

    Pour fries into a large bowl and pour seasoning mixture in and mix well.
