Let’s pretend there was a girl who ate far too often at TGI Friday’s for many, many years. And, still pretending of course, this girl ordered Green Bean Fries every time. She also ate them all. Every time. And then maybe, if she was feeling particularly gluttonous (and she usually was), she would get a second order, and she’d eat all of those as well. Then she would complain to her friend Wesley about how she was “going to die” because she was “so, so full” and ask over and over again why she always did this to herself.
What a weirdo, right? Totally not talking about myself here.
Anyway, after years of the same old song and dance, this pretend girl decided to try making a baked version at home. She expected the worst. They’d probably be soft and floppy and not nearly as tasty if they weren’t fried, or so she thought.
But after one bite of her creations, she fell in love. They were crispy. They were delicious. They were even better than the ones she used to get at Friday’s.
Okay, I am talking about myself and these Baked Green Bean Fries with Sriracha Salt and Light Wasabi Ranch Dip. I know, it’s a shocking twist to the story.
