So what did you all think of the all-star festivities over the weekend? Pretty fun, right? I decided to watch the shootout and (surprisingly good) dunk competition from the warmth of my home. As a snack, I warmed up a bag of all-natural Alexia Smart Classics Crinkle Cut Fries, and made a Lemon Peppercorn Dip to dunk ‘em in. Outstanding.
So Saturday night, I made this delicious peppercorn dip in roughly the time it takes to conveniently heat up Alexia gourmet frozen fries.
2. In fifteen minutes the oven should be ready to rock-n-roll. Arrange the frozen potatoes in a single layer on an 11″ x 17″ baking sheet and slide them in the oven.
9. Add 1/2 cup of heavy cream to the skillet and stir. Let the sauce thicken over the next 5-6 minutes using a low flame. Stirring occasionally, this is when you might think, ‘This looks like peppercorn sauce!”
11. Add salt to taste.
13. Remove Alexia fries or rings from oven, and plate.
And, be sure to stop by the Ice Cream aisle, and grab a bag of your favorite Alexia Frozen Fries & Rings to compliment this game time indulgent dip.
