South of the Border Sliders with Sweet Potato Fries

I have a lie to confess! I cheated. I have always been a firm believing in making stuff from scratch and held about as much  respect for the lazies as the deepness of a kiddy pool. But tonight, I didn’t have a choice. Now, keep in mind that I am a soon-to-be 16 year old teenager taking all AP classes, so with 4 tests and 2 quizzes tomorrow, I didn’t have the time to whip up a 5 star, gourmet meal. So I bought some pre-seasoned slider from Kroger with Monterrey Jack Cheese and various spices already mixed in, I threw those on the George Foreman Grill for about 20 minutes at Medium heat and VOILA, instant gratification! For the sweet potato fries, I just quickly sliced up some sweet potatoes- fresh ones I might add- and placed them on a foiled baking sheet, drizzled some EVOO on them and some kosher salt (I’m not Jewish, I just love me some kosher salt), and put them in the oven at 425 for 25 minutes. Since I’m a bit of a health nut, I ate these bunless (haha bun-less) and added some guacamole and purple onions to the top, with my Momma’s homemade jalapeno pickles! Mmmm mmmm good. Tune in tomorrow for my next great adventure!


Author’s Note: Oven times may vary due to the kitchen appliance brands ruining our lives and confusing us and making us wish we had never remodeled our kitchens.


Ta Ta for Now!

P.S. The picture is a cheat too, I figured I’d at least be consistent;)
