Crispy Baked Garlic Fries

Crispy Baked Garlic Fries: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

These fries are crispy, slightly garlicky and just plain delicious. Just make sure when making these fries make sure to try and cut them approximately the same size so they cook evenly. Also make sure the fries are not touching and overcrowded on the pan or they will not get crispy.

Crispy Baked Garlic Fries
Ingredients:
3 pounds russet potatoes
1/4 cup canola oil
12 cloves garlic, minced

Directions:
Preheat oven to 450ยบ F.

In a small pan, over medium low heat, combine the canola oil and minced garlic. Let sit for 5 minutes, keeping an eye on it so the garlic does not burn. Strain the garlic from the oil saving both for later.

Rinse the potatoes and pat dry. Cut the potatoes lengthwise into thick slices, then cut the slices into small thin sticks.

Toss the potatoes with garlic infused oil and spread out into a single layer on two sheet pans. Bake for 20 minutes and toss the potatoes. Return to the oven for 5 minutes or until desired crispiness is reached, watching carefully so the potatoes do not burn.

Toss the fries with the reserved minced garlic.

Enjoy!!!
