So to continue our theme of The Big Lebowski we have some additional yummies!! Fries because what bowling game would be complete with our some greasy food. Sarsaparilla Floats in honor of the stranger who’s drink of choice is sarsaparilla. Nihilist Pancakes because if you believe in nothing and want to destroy everything then what better to destroy then some delicious over the top nutella covered pancakes! The Walter Custard because who wears yummy yellow sunglasses better then Walter!?! Now… enjoy!
Thanks to the mad styling skills of Liz Demos who helped our Lebowski shoot come together!!
Wash + cut potatoes into even sized sticks.
Place cut potatoes into bowl, cover with water and let soak for for 10-20 minutes.
Preheat the over to 425.
Remove potatoes from water, and dry them thoroughly.
Toss potatoes in 1-2 teaspoons of your favorite oil (I use coconut!) and your favorite seasoning. I typically use a mixture of salt, cumin, and garlic.
Place potatoes in an even layer (not a crowded pan), and place in the over for 15-20 minutes.
Take the fries out, using a spatula, flip them and move them around a little in the pan.
Place back in oven for another 15-20 minutes or until they reach desired doneness.
Place a couple scoops of your favorite vanilla ice cream in a glass.
Pour cold root beer (sarsaparilla) into glass (be careful! It will get foamy)
We topped ours with a little caramel!
Nihilist Nutella Pancakes:
When it comes to things like pancakes, you can’t go wrong with Martha Stewart! Recipe here or of course its always fine to use a mix.
Heat 1/3 cup of milk – do not boil. Stir in 1/2 cup of Nutella. Keep stirring till it dissolves. To make it thinner, add milk, thicker, add more Nutella.
Pour into jar or other container for serving.
Oh and add one ounce of not caring about anything!
We prefer this no-bake version on Epicurious!
