I was introduced to the Greek version of french fries when I went to a festival at a Greek Orthodox church a few years back, and it has now become my favorite way to eat fries. There are lots of different viewpoints about the proper way to prepare the fries, sliced into thick chips, cut into wedges, cooked in olive oil, baked, etc. I'm not going to get into that battle in this recipe, I like them all sorts of ways. While I love to make them with potato wedges, for a quick snack I'll resort to frozen french fries in the toaster oven, and they fill the need just fine. That's just the way I made them today to hold me over till dinner time. I'm not giving any quantities because it will depend on how many potatoes you make and your taste.
Servings:
As many as you want
Preparation Time:
20 minutes

Ingredients

  • French fries
  • Salt
  • Lemon juice (preferably in a spray bottle)
  • Dry Greek oregano
  • Feta or goat cheese crumbles (or a combination of both)
Cooking Instructions
  1. Cook up your fries however you want. If you cook them in the oven, spray them with a little oil so the salt and oregano will stick.
  2. Sprinkle lightly with salt, remember that there is salt in the cheese. Spray or very lightly sprinkle with lemon juice, too much will make the fries soggy. sprinkle on the oregano.
  3. Put on the crumbled cheese. I like a mixture of feta and goat cheese crumbles for a good flavor.

These cheeses don't really melt, but they do get warm and soft. Make sure that you get a bit of cheese with every bite of fry. Once you get hooked on these fries, it is worth dedicating a little spray bottle to the lemon juice and keeping it in the fridge.
