Ingredients

  • 1 (28-oz) bag of frozen French fries (Rosemary French fries, if you can find them!)
  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound ground American Lamb
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

For Serving:

  • Feta cheese
  • Pickled red onions
  • Fresh Dill or oregano or parsley
  • Lemon wedges
  • Whipped Feta dip
  • Tzatziki for serving

Directions

Make the French fries. Place frozen fries on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet, then bake until the fries are crispy on the outside, but tender and fluffy on the inside.  If following package directions, this is usually about 20-24 minutes total at 425 degrees F.

Cook the American Lamb. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add the ground lamb, then sprinkle with 1 teaspoon Kosher salt, 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper.  Cook, stirring occasionally to break up, until the lamb is fully cooked through, about 5-7 minutes.* Set aside.

*Note: USDA recommends ground lamb reach an internal temperature of 160F.

Assemble the Greek fries by using a slotted spoon to transfer the cooked lamb on top of the crispy fries (directly on the baking sheet or on a platter), then scatter with crumbled feta, pickled red onions, and fresh dill or oregano (fresh parsley is good too! if using). Serve with lemon wedges and whipped feta or Tzatziki.
