Bright Tuesday: Arby’s Curly Fries & Alexia Onion Rings

Okay, so Bright Week hasn’t exactly been a week of cooking and baking so much as a week of treating myself to whatever my little heart desires. Last night I stopped at Meijer to grab a couple things and found myself in the frozen foods. And I was hungry. And I saw these…

Abry’s Seasoned Curly Fries, and Alexia Crispy Onion Rings with Panko Breadcrumbs and Sea Salt. It’s really hard to find onion rings, fresh or frozen, that don’t contain milk. Alexia onion rings are milk-free!

So I had a big ol’ bowl of fried foods (I added a couple “wings” to the mix) for my Bright Tuesday dinner. The fries were spicy, greasy, and wonderful, just like I remembered. The onion rings were just okay, though. They were nice and crispy, and not greasy at all, but the coating was very bland. They were pretty good sprinkled with salt, but I wish there would have been seasonings in the coating. Also, even though they were actual rings and not minced onion bits, the onions were very thin. So, a note to the people at Alexia: Please season your coating and use fatter onion pieces! But good for you for not using milk 🙂 I would still buy them again if I really needed a quick fix.

What’s your favorite fried food??

  1. They look pretty normal at least for frozen oven food. Mmmm Are those also Gardein chickenless tenders? Hands-down french fries are my favorite fried food. It can’t get any better than them…. mmmm

    • Yes, wow, you know those chickenless tenders by sight?? That’s impressive! 🙂 French fries are definitely a favorite of mine, too. I think I like onion rings way more when they’re battered rather than breaded.

  2. Deep fat fried stuff <3 I would have to say, my favorite fried food is loukoumades, greek donuts. And of course onion rings 🙂 :)Good that you didn't cook in the Bright Week, you should take a break every now and then! And what better break than fried EVERYTHING

  3. My current favorite fried food is falafel & french fries from Pita House on Wealthy, with the tahini dipping sauce. I like to get the vegetarian combo plate with hummous & fatoosh w/o the fried pita chips, and all the fixins’ (pickled turnips, olive oil, chickpeas, red spice, etc.)

    • Oh, I *love* falafel!!! I’m a little fussy about my fatoosh, my grandmother makes it a certain way that I’ve never seen anywhere else…but sometimes I’ll have it from a restaurant and just pretend it’s something else 🙂 That sounds really good!
