Baked Garlic Fries
Sorry to my coworkers that I’m going to see tomorrow, but I just couldn’t resist making garlic fries for my after work snack today. You see, usually when I want to eat something with a lot of garlic or raw onions, I schedule it for a Saturday dinner so that by the time Monday rolls around I have no worries. But this was one of those rare times that I couldn’t wait until the weekend. Tomorrow I’ll try to keep my distance.
1/2 tsp garlic (or regular) salt
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp pepper
On a non stick baking sheet, toss the cut potatoes with 1 Tbsp vegetable oil, 1/2 tsp of salt, and pepper. Make sure the potatoes are in a single layer and bake at 400 degrees F for 40 to 50 minutes. Flip the fries over once or twice throughout the baking process.
While the fries are baking in the oven, heat 1 Tbsp of olive oil in a large pan on low heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for a couple minutes. When the potatoes are done baking, toss them into this pan of garlic and now garlic infused oil. Give it a taste, if you want more flavor add another 1/2 tsp of salt.
