This recipe is a meal on its own so you don’t really need to have any other side dishes unless you want to. I found it hearty and filling. It may not be the healthiest recipe, but that’s ok. Sometimes, all you want is a little comfort food to fill your soul.

For the fries, use your favourite brand. I love the McCain Superfries because they bake up nice and crispy. Bridget won’t eat fries if they are soggy and they need to be extra crispy. Picky, picky!
