Garlic Fries

Hands-on time 14 mins
Total time 42 mins
Yield 6 servings (serving size: about ¾ cup)
We first introduced this recipe in 2002, and it remains a favorite. Tossing crisp oven fries in a small amount of butter and garlic after cooking makes them unbelievably rich, yet still lower in fat than fast food fries.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and cut into ¼-inch-thick strips
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • 8 garlic cloves, minced (about 5 teaspoons)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 450°.

  2. Combine potatoes and oil in a large zip-top plastic bag; seal bag, and toss well to coat.
