Tested till perfect Micro-Grilled Fries

Micro-Grilled Fries

Not only does grilling instead of frying cut down on fat but it also gives potatoes a tasty smoky flavour. Serve these irresistible bites with Peppercorn Thyme T-Bones, Cumin Flank Steak with Avocado Salad or Old-Fashioned Barbecued Drumsticks.
