Fake French Fries | www.tasteandtellblog.com

Happy April Fools Day! I hope that you’ve played a prank or two so far, or that you have something in the works!

Since we love all things food, I knew I wanted to make a food fake out. I’ve seen all kinds of ideas popping up everywhere, but this one looked fun and easy. Make fake French fries from breadstick dough and serve with strawberry “ketchup.” My husband wasn’t fooled, but they sure were tasty, and a lot better for breakfast than real French fries!

Fake French Fries
adapted from Every Day with Rachael Ray April 2010

1 can of refrigerated bread sticks
sugar
strawberry jam

Cut the bread sticks into French fry sizes. Roll in sugar. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake until cooked through. Serve with the strawberry jam for dipping.

    those remind me of these weird like MAKE YOUR OWN kits that I grew up playing with in the 90's. there was one for McDonalds french fries but you ended up just making cinnamon toast and putting them in a plastic mcd's fry holder.

    How cool! I love the sound of these. Better than french fries for breakfast! You could have a little pot of yoghurt for mayonnaise too!
