Bugs Bunny Fries

I mainly wanted to see if I could get The Kid to eat more vegetables...but also wanted to see if carrots could make a fry substitute since eating them raw by the fistful is getting really tired.

I took two large carrots, cut in half length and width-wise. Then I put them in a pan, brushed with olive oil and baked them at 400 for about 30 minutes.

Then I sliced them.

They were crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and tasted great. The Kid had his with a side of mayonnaise(he's weird) and gobbled them down. Who says fries have to hail from potatoes?!

  1. We do ours on the grill like that. We have been grilling acorn squash on the grill and it turns out so good.

    My daughter and grandkids all eat their fries with mayo.... It gives me the shivvers, but to each his own.
