Hello and Happy February to all in Love Bakes Good Cakes land! It’s me, Kim from Soliloquy Of Food & Such. Today I am sharing these Greek Fries. Greek Fries are an easy way to spice up frozen french fries. Bake them, or fry them – just be sure to top them with these quintessential Greek ingredients…..you won’t ever look at freezer fries the same way again.
The key is to use a sturdy fry. I chose Nathan’s Famous Jumbo Fries; they are crinkle cut fries the size of steak fries…need I say more? Bake them well on both sides, you want them very crispy so when you toss them in lemon juice and salt they stay in tact.

Layer chopped parsley, fine chopped red onions, sliced kalamata olives…
Finally finish with crumbled feta cheese…..
Serve with Tzatziki….lots…and lots…of tzatziki for dipping.
