Making meal time fun is one way to get the family together and talking at the Dinner Table, if you happen to be dining with your loved ones. Any who, I was able to get my hands on a Prego Recipe Book and I realized that by getting creative, food can be fun and filling.

In the Prego Recipe Book, I chose recipe #11, Pizza Fries because my Mum often made homemade fries for dinner and it didn't matter if she was pairing them with fried chicken wings or baked ones, they always hit the spot so I thought this recipe would be a fun twist for homemade fries. Besides, pizza is fun for kids and the whole family and with Spring just getting in and Summer fastly approaching, I could not resist.

What you will need

  • 1 bag of (2 pounds) of Frozen Potatoes or 4 medium/large potatoes if you are using fresh
  • 1 cup of Prego Italian Sauce (any variety)
  • 1 1/2 shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 6 ounces of sliced pepperoni diced (optional)

Don't forget the Pizza Pan y'all. I got creative with the recipe by using Turkey Pepperoni, fresh potatoes and seasoning them with turmeric and black pepper. Although I cut and fried fresh potatoes, preparation instructions are easy even if you decide to use frozen potatoes and an oven. Here's what you do, after the potatoes are ready.

  • Remove fries from oven and cover with cheese
  • Add pepperoni and place back into the oven
  • Bake for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted 

Viola! Here is what you get.

Plated Pizza Fries

As much as my Mum made homemade fries, I had never heard of Pizza Fries. Thanks Prego for giving me a new way to offer my Great Nieces and Nephews fun food. I love cooking with red and green peppers and as a snack, those veggies are crunchy and tasty. I have known many individuals to snack on celery but Red and Green Peppers have more flavor and you don't even need peanut butter. The colorful veggies helped me to add in some healthy crunch, long after my Pizza Fries were gone. Oh and using a little Prego Sauce as a dipping sauce is a nice touch. That's all. Kudos...
