Syn Free Dirty Fries are ridiculously easy to make, and especially so in the Tefal Actifry!

Bacon, potatoes and Cajun spice may sound like a bit of an odd mix, but it’s truly amazing. It has to be one of my favourite combinations ever.

They’re quick, easy, tasty and best of all there’s hardly any mess. No need to turn them either, as it’s all done for you by the paddle.

You can just leave the Actifry to it pretty much!
