Oven-Baked Garlic Fries

Posted by Olivia on Thursday, February 4th, 2010

These garlicky fries are a staple at ballparks, but they can stand up to a fancy steak equally well. The Parmesan adds a nutty, salty layer that compliments the garlic perfectly. I love to use flavorful Mission Extra Virgin Olive Oil in this dish, as the flavor intensity is mild enough to let the garlic shine through, yet present enough to add a delicious level of pungent freshness.

Ingredients

2 large Russet potato, scrubbed and cut into 3” sticks

2-3 tbsp. medium intensity extra virgin olive oil, such as Mission

3 cloves garlic, chopped finely

1 small bunch flat leaf parsley, chopped

salt and pepper to taste

3 tbsp. grated Parmesan

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Toss potatoes with olive oil and spread in an even layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Flip with a spatula and bake for another 5 minutes or until fries are golden-brown.

Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Once cool, toss with garlic, parsley, Parmesan, salt and pepper to taste.

Serve hot.

Serves 2.
