Potato Bonfire

This dish's unique name comes from my wanting to both play with and decorate baked French fries as a bonfire. It looks like a bonfire, and is hot like one too! The French fries are baked with rosemary and seasoning and then eaten with a fiery spicy sauce. Feel and enjoy the heat from both the decoration and taste!
