Easy Recipe: Johnsonville PigTails & Fries

Everybody knows that I only make easy recipes with five ingredients or less. The one I have to share today is from Johnsonville's recipes and only uses two ingredients. It is also super-easy to make. Usually we modify recipes to suit our family's taste, but there was nothing to change about this particular recipe, although I would love to try it with onions someday.

This recipe can be prepared either baked or fried. We opted for baking because it just seemed healthier than deep frying something that is already rich in oil.

Recipe: PigTails & Fries

1 package (approximately 28oz) frozen curly fries
1 package (13.5oz to 16oz) Johnsonville Polish Sausage (can be substituted with other varieties of smoked sausage)

Step 1. Preheat oven at 450 degrees.

Step 2. Slice each sausage in half lengthwise. Then slice each half lengthwise into three long strips.

Step 3. Spread fries out in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 17 to 20 minutes, turning fries about halfway through the cooking time.

Step 4. Spread sausage strips out in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 12 to 14 minutes. Strips should curl and begin to brown.

Step 5. Immediately serve sausage strips together with fries while still hot.

Yields approximately 6 servings.

We tried to serve ours with rice because the sausage and the fries were a bit spicy. We were expecting our children to eat all their rice and leave the rest of their food, like always, but instead we were surprised. They actually ate all their PigTails & Fries and were too full to eat their rice.

In addition to being both kid and adult-friendly, this dish only costs about $0.91 per serving. So it would be a cost-effective dish to serve or bring to your next get-together. To find more Johnsonville recipes, visit Johnsonville.com and Tailgateville.Johnsonville.com .
