Garlic Fries

Are you ever dying for a steaming plate of salty fries but don’t want to put on pants to leave the house? Here’s a super easy way to solve that problem, and no deep-fryer needed!

These baked garlic fries will have you begging for more…

Step one, preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit – you’ll want it nice and hot before you put in your potatoes.

Next, select your potatoes and give them a good wash; no need to peel.

Slice the potatoes [see photo], and then cut into strips. Place potato strips into a large bowl.

Next season with salt, pepper, lots of garlic powder and spray with olive oil to coat.

Line and spray a baking sheet and lay out the “pre-fries” in one layer.

Cook for 30-35 minutes, keeping an eye on them and flipping occasionally to avoid burning and sticking.

If you are feeling adventurous, you could use this as a starting point for one wicked poutine. Some cheese curds, homemade gravy, maybe some bacon or pulled pork….okay I did not just drool on the keyboard a little bit…

Show us what you’ve done with this recipe! Post pictures below or on our Facebook page! Maybe I’ll post a poutine picture soon, I’m dying to turn this into pulled pork poutine, I can’t stop talking about how good it’s going to be!

Now excuse me while I eat my plate of steaming garlic fries, without sharing, and not feel guilty about it one bit!
