Fries, Mcdonald, Arby discussed on Eat This, Not That!


This deal now. Let's get back to some fries the number three on our list and this one. I haven't had personally it's dairy queen fries all day. I don't want to get dairy queen fries. It's not what I worked at Dairy Queen when I was sixteen and it was the yeah well they didn't have my dairy queen tiny stand in town with a drive through and some picnic tables we the hotdogs but we didn't have the fries. I feel like I missed out I know but the team reported did these to be perfectly salted and thick enough to hold up to dips and they're pretty darn good so regular size portions only two hundred ninety calories thirteen grams of fat five ninety milligrams sodium thirty nine carbs so so not that badly rationales but you you know again. I haven't had them personally. I am missing out where I grew up. We have dairy queen that was like the full sit down kind of order to get food and you could sit down. There's Burgers and fries and all those kinds of things and it was a long time ago. I don't really remember the fries. I only remember the Ice Creams of course but I've had them yeah but it just again. It's just not top of mind number two this one. I really like seeing here because if not five guys this is where I'm going it's shake shack fries and shake shack. It shook up our our expectations if you will with off get crunchy tators and they're the crinkle cut fries which which I like and look and love or hate it right some people that might throw thirty for a loop you don't like the crinkle cut fries you want your Friday b street and and and and skin on or all this guy but look don't hate on the crank Dunkin hit on the table I mean teach their own and but the fresh flavor will just put all your suspicions aside like you'll you'll be on the crinkle cut bandwagon after these end regular size. Fries with four hundred twenty calories nineteen grams of fat four hundred ninety grams of milligrams of sodium and that's not too bad again. This falls in line with with everything else. That's that's in the top five here. I like everything shake shack. I'm like shake shack girl. We went to a mets game at Citi field our first because we're not mets fans were red sox fans but the boys are just obsessed with baseball and there was a we got there and I saw there was a giant shake shack and we're like Oh my God. This is so perfect yeah. It's fantastic all right in the number one pick this surprise me as well. It's another fun shrew his on the edge of their nick but here comes the shock. It's a shock and this is not a fry that I typically go for but it's Arby's curly fries. I know that's a shocking number one but the team deemed with these ones that will keep coming back for although there nutritionals make them the ultimate cheat male. Maybe they taste delicious because it's going to be five hundred fifty calories twenty nine grams of fat. That's pretty whopping more than twelve twelve hundred milligrams of sodium sixty five grams of carbs so definitely not the healthiest pick but maybe that's why the team you know if you're going to indulge in Friday on the thirteenth. Maybe just you know they're perfectly season. They taste great for once in a while. Maybe try Arby's curly fries again. Look this is another place I don't really think of and think of fries or anything related where the we've got the meats like all that we have the curly fries and they're and they're and they're delicious dishes because check this out so I will. I will check out arbitrage. I'll get I'll give them a chance and again like you said like every now and then my fries every day so you don't worry about the calories and the sodium on this one on this one meal that you're GonNa have every now now and then like if if you are eating fries everyday then you dial that back and he's thinking about this into our podcast more than pleased so looking all you who are listening right now. You're probably wondering where the heck are McDonald's famous fries people through the top five live and everyone kept thinking okay. The next one is going to be the next one is going to be McDonalds. The McDonalds fries landed on the rankings. They were just outside the top five at number six also five guys as I mentioned one of my per. One of my personal favorites came in at number eight a great so look if you want to forgo the fast food fried damage obviously as a less sodium when you're talking about twelve hundred and fifty milligrams and fire up a batch of deliciously addictive spuds at home our very own Dave's Zenko who mocked me for my sweet potato fries and in his mouth that CO author Matt Goulding. Have you covered with their rosemary. Parmesan fries sound pretty good these sound fantastic all the ingredients that I love okay so here's what you'll need. We're going to go through the recipe for you to medium Russet. I sit potatoes two tablespoons of canola oil salt to taste and maybe pepper if that's if that's your thing to to close of garlic very finely minced. I'd probably add more just because I'm gonNA garlic junkie but at least two first familiar one teaspoon fresh rosemary leaves degree by the way to beautiful out great and a quarter cup graded parmesan cheese so now it's time to fire them up preheat the oven to four twenty five degrees Fahrenheit Peel your potatoes and cut them into quarter inch fries. That's about twice. The thickness of McDonald's fries a little thicker soak the potatoes in warm water for at least fifteen minutes before cooking them then drain them and. Pat them dry very thoroughly. Make sure they're nice and dry combine the fries and the oil in a mixing bowl and toss them until they're evenly coated and then you're gonNA season them thoroughly with salt. We want good salt on these fries but we're also having Parmesan cheese so you don't have to go overboard you could it always add more later versus over-salting and then you're going to spread the fries out on a large baking sheet being careful that they don't overlap have a nice even layer. It's so important people so important to cook with soggy FRY crispy. It's I gotTA spread. 'em Out to us to sheets. If you have to absolutely and then you're going to make them for thirty minutes until the fries are just tender in lightly Brown on the outside and then you're going to take them out sprinkle them with the garlic Rosemary Mary and Parmesan cheese all those Yemi flavors return it to the oven for another ten minutes until the cheese is melting in the garlicky is lightly Brown and your house is GonNa Smell Amazing and then we john and I want to be invited over to enjoy these with view but these fries are only you know this recipe serves for people hundred ninety calories eight grams of fat and only two hundred forty milligrams of sodium so that is not bad at all for aside or a snack. I mean that's the thing that's the difference between in eating out and making something at home right I talked about making my own sweet potato wedges and fries I guess but again it's just a little salt and pepper a little bit of oil to to get them in the oven so they crisp up and caramelized nice and there's there's not a lot of damage there but if you look at some of these these fast food fries and the ones that were not that were outside the top five by the way like McDonald's and and all the others there were there were far more ranked here. We just went through the top five. You realize like how much damage can be done. Why feel kind of crummy afterwards totally I mean they? They're good going down but like an hour later like God Tom's so maybe try the homemade on July thirteenth. If you don't WanNa go out for some national Friday you know if you're not going to go out and get your own favorite fast food fries than try these these fries right here and let us know what you think. It was pretty tasty so there you have it now. You are fully prepared to celebrate national Friday and look if it's not July thirteenth li-listening to this words or.
