This video (as usual) has absolutely nothing to do with the recipe or anything, in fact.
I just remember seeing it a long time ago and thinking it was totally, freakin’ weird. And funny.
If you like meatloaf, this is a delicious version. Comfort food with a hit of spiciness. The cumin fries were a nice side.

1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup horseradish

Spicy Cumin Fries
2 pounds frozen crinkle-cut french fries
1/2 cup chopped dried red chiles, such as cayenne or arbol
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons whole cumin seeds
1 tablespoon Sichuan peppercorns
4 green onions, chopped
1. Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 450℉. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with foil, then divide the fries between them. Bake, tossing once or twice, until crisp and golden brown, 30 to 45 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.
2. Place the chiles in a bowl, cover with a plate and shake to release the seeds. Take out the chiles, leaving the seeds behind.
3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the cumin seeds, peppercorns, chopped chiles and 1 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring, until toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the green onions and remove from the heat.
4. Toss the fries with the spiced oil and season with salt.

I heard this song over at Play That Song For Me the other day and have not been able to get it out of my mind.
Dreamy, retro, altogether addictive.
