Garlic Oven Fries

Garlic Oven Fries

Pair these with hamburgers and shakes for an All-American meal!
Baked Garlic Oven Fries

Olive Oil
Minced Garlic
Rosemary (or favorite herb)

This is one of those makes as much as you need recipes, so no measurements are given.

To make the Garlic Oil:
Place olive oil in small saucepan, add 1-2 Tbsp. minced garlic per 1/2 C. of oil.  Add in a few sprigs of fresh rosemary or other herb.
Garlic oil with Basil

Heat over med.-low heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.  Remove from heat and cool.  Strain and store in airtight container.

Wash and cut desired amount of potatoes into french fry sticks (we use 1 potato per person).

Toss cut fries with just enough oil to lightly coat.  I use about 1 Tbsp. oil per 3-4 potatoes.  Place on greased baking sheet and bake at 450 degrees for 35-45 minutes, until golden brown.  Turn potatoes a couple of times during baking to brown on all sides.

Add salt and pepper to taste and dip in some homemade ketchup!

I make these all the time.  I usually cube my potatoes though and sprinkle some basil and thyme along with garlic on them.....mmmmmm so good.  Will have to make fries next time.  The fam will love them.

When I do them as cubes, I like Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese on them too!
