Pad Thai Fries

If you're looking for a quick and easy post-thanksgiving dinner that doesn't involve turkey, you've come to the right place!  This recipe for Pad Thai Fries takes less time to throw together than the time than it would take for take-out to arrive.  

This is one of those great kinds of recipes where each ingredient doesn't have to be measured, poured, or weighed.  Aside from the fries, everything else is essentially a flavourful garnish, so you can just use your best judgement when it comes to plating your dish. In fact, a fun family dinner night could include setting all of the topping ingredients on the table, giving everyone a plate filled with fries, and full reign to load up on their favourite flavours. 

I love McCain fries because they use only real, natural ingredients.  The only ingredients in their fries are potatoes, canola oil and sea salt.  Now there's a brand I can get on board with!

- Your Favourite Peanut Pad Thai Sauce
- Chopped Peanuts
- Carrots
- Cilantro
- Lime
- Red Chili Peppers


Cook McCain Straight Cut Fries as per the package directions. 

Meanwhile, warm up Peanut Pad Thai Sauce in a medium saucepan.  Once warm, pour into a glass measuring cup (a gravy boat would also work in a pinch!).  

Drizzle Peanut Pad Thai Sauce over fries, the top with julienne carrots, chopped peanuts, sliced chili peppers, fresh cilantro, and a couple of twists of lime.



  1. I love spicy fries...but these sound totally interesting since I LOVE pad thai. Awesome!!

    1. If you like extra spice, add a drizzle of sriracha sauce after the pad thai sauce - my husband (who likes things as spicy as possible) did that afterwards and I almost re-shot the whole recipe just because it was such brilliant addition!

  2. Awesome idea! That is definitely not a flavor combo that I would have thought of, but it sounds good! I looove pad thai :)

    1. Thanks! I thought it would be a fun fusion between traditional pad thai and french fries!

  3. Wow! Sounds so exotic and looks DELICIOUS!! <3

    1. Thank you for your comments! It definitely didn't last long in our house!
