A Side Anyone Can Make

Not only is this EVOO-inspired dish delicious, but it’s perfect even for those without much cooking experience. With just a few simple steps needed, virtually anyone is capable of making this tasty side without too much effort. Baking versus frying will allow the fries to maintain their crisp while not creating a mess in your kitchen.
