Have you heard of CRaVON! Fries? They are awesome…

A note from Heather… Ruth from So Cal Pocket Memories graciously covered this event for me. I absolutely love CRaVON! Fries and when I couldn’t attend their event Ruth offered to go with  her {totally adorable} son and write about it here…

Last week we were invited to Cook LA to learn from celebrity Chef Nikki Shaw about CravOn Fries and using recipes to make easy, healthy, convenient choices for our family.

CravOn Fries are not flashed fried like other brands, they do a quick blanching process and then to the freezer.  I had my son read the ingredients, which he had no trouble with:

Potato, Olive Oil and Sea Salt for flavor, Caramel Color and Annatto, a natural plant-based color.

How simple is that?!  I loved having a product that my kids can pronounce, myself included, and that is not fried.

Chef Nikki Shaw explained about making good choices for the family, like using ground turkey instead of ground beef to cut the fat.  My son listened intently, of course cause it wasn’t me preaching to him.  He got a high five from Chef Nikki when he stated that CravOn Fries had 50% less fat than traditional frozen fries.  I was shocked that he had retained the information. 

First we made this yummy Crowd Pleaser Pesto Dip which my son didn’t care for, but I couldn’t stop eating it!  Must be cause it was green.  I was satisfied that he tried it.  With the Ripple Cut CravOn Fries the dip went into the little nooks and tasted amazing!

Crowd Pleaser Pesto Dip Recipe

Bake the CravOn Ripple Cut Fries as directed.  In a small food processor combine 1/4 cup pine nuts and 1 tsp garlic, minced until coarsely chopped.  Then add to the processor 2 cups packed fresh basil leaves, 1 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1 tsp of fresh lemon juice, and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.  Then process until blended.


The next part was my sons favorite!  We made Mouthwatering Meatball Marinara.  So instead of making pasta we changed it up and used fries!  I was a little skeptical at first.  But then I tried them and my son was begging for more I knew we had a winner!  When I don’t have to tell my son “Take another bite” you know it is something you will to your menu.

Mouthwatering Meatball Marinara Recipe:

Bake the CravOn Steak Cut Fries as directed.  Shape 1/2 pound turkey sausage into 1″ balls, Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in pan and add the meatballs.  Cook and turn the meatballs until done (about 10 minutes) and then add your favorite marinara sauce.  Cook for another 5 minutes.  Then just combine and top with Parmesan cheese.

When we got home from the event my son was so excited to tell his dad all about what he had learned and made.    

As you might of guessed, we had to run to the store the next day to purchase CravOn Fries.  At the checkout stand the cashier asked about the fries and as I started to open my mouth to speak my son beat me to it.  He told her how tasty they are and 50% less fat then others.  Also having just 5 ingredients.  Now he didn’t remember all of them but 3 out of 5 was not so bad!
