|Where we got engaged 2 years ago!|
Now, I've eaten A LOT of poutine in my time. Along with Cupcakes & Ketchup Chips, Poutine a weakness of mine (I call these my Weakness Trifecta, or the Willpower Incinerators). So, I was a little skeptical of just how great this place was going to be. Then I saw the menu and knew I was home:
Here is La T-Rex...
So, to make a long story short, if you're ever in Montreal Area, GO HERE.
Now that I'm back from vacation, I'm going through poutine & french fry withdrawl. Hubby suggested we try to make something we usually get at a wing place here where they toss some fries in some sauce.
Side Note: I loooooove sauce. Hubs and I are sauce people. We will pretty much dip everything we eat into something.
Anyway, we concocted these: Baked Hot and Zesty Ceaser Fries. So good, so easy and SLIGHTLY (very slightly) better for you than what you'd get in a restaurant because these are baked! PLUS they make a perfect side to some BBQ Chicken and veggies (okay, we didn't have veggies, but would still be good!)
Baked Hot and Zesty Ceasar Fries
By Me and HubsIngredients:
5-6 Medium Potatoes (this made enough for 3 people)
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/3 cup Creamy Ceasar Dressing
3-4 tbsp of Franks Hot Sauce
Preheat your over to 450 degrees F.
Cut up your potatoes either using a French Fry cutter or knife. I use a knife, so I just cut them in half, then put the flat side down, cut 4 slices (horizontally) then cut each one of those slices in half again (horizontally). It isn't perfect, but it works!
Put your cut potatoes into a large bowl and toss in the oil and the salt and pepper until evenly coated. Transfer to a greased cookie sheet and spread out evenly. They will look like so:
When they are done, spoon the fries into another bowl and add the Ceaser Dressing and Franks and toss until evenly coated.If you like hot, add more Franks, that part it up to you!!!
