"My husband LOVES to cook. He'll call me all excited from work and tell me that he's come up with an idea and not to do anything as HE is cooking dinner tonight, which is obviously one of the main reasons i married him...

So sadly, i can't take credit for this recipe but i can tell you that hubby totally outdid himself with this one!

Great on their own as a snack or as the chips in "fish and chips". You can even play around with the fries and try using shredded coconut instead of the bread crumbs to make them gluten free or add things like herbs or chili to the mix. They would be delicious with a homemade mango chutney or sweet chilli sauce too... Mmm. Now i'm hungry!"
