If you have ever been to a San Francisco's Giants game, you have probably tried - or at least smelled - these amazing garlic fries. This recipe uses the oven instead of a deep fryer, so this version is a little bit healthier than what you might find at the ballpark, and can easily be made at home... These fries are perfect for accompanying some summer BBQ, celebrating the 4th, or to eat while watching a game.
3 tablespoons and 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil
2.5 pounds of russet potatoes
4 garlic cloves, finely diced
Salt & pepper to taste
2 tablespoons of flat leaf parsley, chopped
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Coat a baking sheet in about 1/2 teaspoon of oil.
Slice the potatoes into 1/2 thick strips, leaving the skin on. Toss the strips in 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil with salt and pepper to taste. Start fairly light, but it's hard to ever over salt potatoes.
Place the potatoes on a single layer on the baking sheet.
Cook the potatoes for approximately 30-40 minutes, turning after 15 minutes. Keep a close eye after the 30 minute mark and pull them before they get too brown. You want the fries to have some crispiness, but to prevent them from drying out.
Once done, toss the fries in the remaining oil, garlic, and parsley, then season to taste.
Serve and enjoy!
