Potato Story: “We recently tested four new recipes at one of our high school campuses in collaboration with Potatoes USA. One recipe seemed to stand out from the rest, Shawarma Fries! Fries tossed in an aromatic blend of spices topped with thinly sliced beef and drizzled with a tangy yogurt sauce that had just the right amount of kick. Not only was it the student’s favorite, but it was my favorite as well. Our students really enjoyed sampling this new dish and we are looking into how we might incorporate this dish and other potatoes into our future menus.”
