So tonight’s dinner was a hit.

I’m really enjoying this #TripleSBites event. Or at least getting started. I’ve got at least 9 more recipes to show case these #sponsors goodies!

This is another one of those, “brainstorm dinner on the traffic drive home from work” dinners. It also helped that I received yet another sponsor’s ingredient today from Acala Farms, some heavenly infused Cottonseed Oil. This cottonseed oil is very versatile, with a high smoking point for fryng, baking, or even just drizzling over a salad or roasted vegetables. You can purchase it here, if you’d like.
I decided to make some juicy Blue Bacon Chicken Burgers with Infused Oven Fries. I used my olive oil mayo trick on the burgers, to give them that extra umph. And of course Voodoo Chef Red gave it the WOW. The French Fries, well the Chile Cumin Oil was perfect for those! They turned out incredibly roasted, soft inside and flavorful outside. I only added salt and pepper but the oil gave it so much more flavor that no regular oil could deliver.

Now to the recipe.
