Fantastic way to get "crisp" fries in the oven! I have tried other recipes from C.L. for cooking fries and the bake time was astronomical (~1 hr), but the broil really helps these along to make a great tasting side dish in half the time. I really think all these need though at the end of the day would be a sprinkle of salt and likely wouldn't put in the parsley or garlic again since that portion of the cooking wilted my fries a bit. Would absolutely make again though anytime I'm craving french fries - great sub for the "fast food" varietals. Be sure to cut your fries into small enough pieces (and even sizes!) to get them nice and crisp (I only used ~2 large Idaho baking potatoes so ingredients are minimal). Enjoy!

Enjoy a side of Garlic and Herb Oven Fries! These crispy fries start out in the oven and are finished by sauting with a little butter and garlic for extra flavor. Then toss with parsley, kosher salt, and pepper.
