Garlic "Fries"

Total Time:
48 min
13 min
35 min

4 (3/4 cup) servings

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 large baking potatoes, 12 ounces each
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley leaves

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Heat the garlic and oil in a small saucepan over medium heat for 2 minutes. Strain the garlic from the oil with a small mesh strainer. Set both garlic and oil aside.

Cut the potatoes into 1/4-inch sticks. In a large bowl, toss the oil, potatoes and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and spread the potatoes onto it in a single layer. Bake until golden and crisp, about 35 minutes.

Remove potatoes from the tray with a metal spatula. Toss with parsley, reserved garlic, and additional salt, to taste. Serve immediately.

Excellent, easy to make and a healthy alternative to the classic FF. Thank you, item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are great. What's not to like? Sometimes I leave the garlic whole in the oil and skip the parsley and garlic step at the end, they still taste great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These "Fries" are irresistible. If I have these out of the oven before the rest of the meal is completed, they are all gone before we even sit down. My husband and daughter (I'm guilty too) snack on them and before we know it, they are all gone. I strain the garlic pieces out of the oil before tossing the potatoes in the oil. Then just a few minutes before the potatoes get crispy, I sprinkle the garlic onto the potatoes. I have found that if I put the potatoes on the cookie sheet and drizzle all the oil over them, they do not get crispy. I always put the oil in a bowl and toss the potatoes in the oil. I often use two cookie sheets, as the potatoes must cook in only one layer. If they lay on top of each other, they don't get crisp. item not reviewed by moderator and published
As good as it gets without going to San Francisco to get garlic fries at the Giants game! Served them at a family get together and no surprise.....None left!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
LOVED these. I baked them on a cooling rack on a cookie sheet. They didn't get overly crisp but that's actually the way I like them. Added a bit of Parmesan. I thought they ended up tasting a bit like Red Robin's Garlic Parmesan Fries. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed the recipe but the garlic burned and so did the fries. However, I love garlic fries so I will attempt to make them again-maybe not leave them in the oven as long. We'll see. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The perfect "healthy" fries recipe!! My 5yo twins loved did the hubby and I. This recipe is a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious. Just add a little more salt (of course), a little more garlic, and cook 10 minutes longer (in my oven at least). item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ever since Applebee's did the Tyler Florence garlic fries, I have wanted a good recipe for garlic fries. Those were AMAZING. These weren't amazing, but they were good. Unfortunately, baked fries never seem to cook completely evenly (at least not for me, and I've got a convection oven for even baking) so I did have some more brown than others. None got truly crisp unless they were burnt, but again, that seems to be the nature of oven fries IMO. But the flavor was good. I added Parmesan cheese at the end as some others did because it seemed like a no brainer. Definitely better with the cheese. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Welps, let's see.... They turned out alright but I ended up adding more salt & also some parmesan cheese. I was hoping they'd taste more like the Garlic Parmesan Fries you get at Hurricane Gril & Wings. I used peanut oil instead of canola. I may have added more garlic, too... Im a garlic kinda girl, what can I say?! item not reviewed by moderator and published
