Garlic Fries

These are our favorite fries to make at home.  They take a little time, but you don't have to baby sit them much.  My favorite dish to serve them with (besides a burger, obviously) is the Pork Loin Pitas.  They are phenomenal dipped in that feta sauce!

Garlic Fries
adapted from Cooking Light Magazine

1-1/2 lbs peeled baking potatoes, cut into 1/4 inch strips
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/4 tsp salt
Cooking spray
1 tbs butter
4 garlic cloves, minced (or the amount of your liking)
1 tbs freshly grated parm cheese

Preheat oven to 400.
Combine first 3 ingredients in large zip-top plastic bag, tossing to coat.
Arrange potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray (it really does help, even if you're using a non-stick pan!). Bake at 400 for 50 minutes or until potatoes are tender and golden brown, turning after 20 minutes (if you cut them thin enough, they never take 50 minutes!)
Place butter and garlic in a large nonstick skillet; cook over low heat 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add potatoes and cheese to pan; toss to coat.
Serve immediately.

  1. Yum! Good one, Keely. Methinks these would be tasty with Ranch. Upon writing that I realize I haven't had any Ranch since I arrived here in England. I knew something was missing...
