Garlic Fries

Garlic Fries

I have a love affair with garlic…

We go together like peas and carrots, chocolate and peanut butter, lamb and tunafish! <—movie reference, I don’t really like lamb and tunafish together. Just want to make that clear haha.

Seriously though, I have a really hard time not cooking with garlic. I am one of those people who can put a whole head of garlic into the oven, roast it, and then spread it on bread….YUMMMMMMIE! Or should I say NomNoms ;-). Or how about garlic and olive oil as a dipping sauce? ::kisses fingers:: MUAH! OR how about a fresh tomato salad with cucumber and garlic…. ::dreams of summer tomatoes::

Are you getting the picture here? I.HEART.GARLIC.

Naturally this recipe jumped out at me, I mean garlic is right in the title! How could I not at least look at it, and let us be real, then not make it! hehe

Ingredients for Garlic Fries:

  • 3 pounds peeled baking potatoes, cut into 1/4″ thick strips
  • 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking Spray
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8 garlic gloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • 4 tablespoons freshly shaved Parmesan

Preheat oven to 400ΒΊ

Combine baking potatoes, cut into 1/4″ thick strips, vegetable oil, and salt into a bowl and toss to coat.

Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake for about 50 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and golden brown. Make sure to turn after about 20 minutes.

Place butter and garlic in a large nonstick skillet. Cook over low heat for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the potatoes, parsley, and cheese to pan. Toss to coat and serve immediately.

Um, just sayin’…these were phenomenal! They were salty and crunchy but still tender. The extra taste from the Parmesan gave them a tangy and salty flavor. Along with the fresh refreshing parsley it was just such a great combination of flavors.

I paired this with some homemade cod fish sticks (ah yes, you heard right), recipe to come. It was like RavieNomNoms version of fish and chips ;-).

  1. These look insane! I bet it would be fun to play around with variations, adding fresh herbs and different kinds of cheese. I can even imagine placing a runny fried egg right on top, and treating these like alternative hashed browns. Yum!

  2. This sound so amazing..I didn’t like garlic for a long long time..but the last 10 years of my life I’m using garlic in almost every dish…I love your fries, tasty and beautiful!!!

    • Thank you Sandra! I didn’t like garlic for a long time too, huh how funny! I think my taste buds have changed tremendously as I have gotten older

  3. Adam says he loves it because it keeps vampires away, but I am less taken with his Friday night horror movies and simply love garlic! I’ve even had a garlic ice cream! Love your fries, too, and the Parmesan ads a nice depth of flavor. Great recipe, thanks!

    • Haha, that is why my Dad says he won’t eat garlic. I don’t want anything that fends animals away. Garlic ice cream!? What a trip that must have been!

  9. Mmmm these are going to make me ruin my diet…

    • Haha, that is the best part! These are actually lower calorie than most fries….since they are baked and I used such a small amount of oil. According to the recipe, they are only 250 calories! Not to shabby for french fries!

    I think I’ll whip up some of these garlic fries while we watch The Masters this weekend. Thx for sharing!

  20. I love me some garlic too! These sound awesome! I’ve never had garlic frys but I seriously want to try them.

  21. Oh yum! I could live on garlic fries, however, I don’t think my husband would appreciate it. He says I retain garlic smell like no other! ha. I’ll just have to eat them when he’s not around!
    Really great dish!

    • Haha that is too funny Karen. I am lucky that everyone in my life, except for my Dad, likes garlic so I don’t have to worry about that. But man does he complain if he smells garlic haha

  22. I have a growing affair with garlic, as well. It started innocently with some garlic powder, grew to minced garlic to… keeping garlic cloves in the fridge now. These look good.

    • Yay Nick! I am glad to hear that you are branching out and trying to cook with garlic. It is so amazing when you start to use it. Just a piece of advice…I find the best place to keep garlic is in a cool, dark place. Not so much the fridge or any place that it will get sunlight…it lasts longer that way!

  23. Now this is amazing! Garlic is heaven…I must try this, so delicious πŸ™‚

  24. This recipe is definitely worth an attempt. We endorse it!

  25. I think these would be fantastic with a nice steak. I especially love the parsley and parmesan – nice touch!
