Baked Garlic Parmesan French Fries

Ok, seriously. Who does not love garlic fries? They are the perfect pub snack for after work happy hours or even a tasty side dish to a homemade grilled burger. I made these a while back, but never had a chance to share and I am craving them again. They are so simple to make and are packed full of flavor. These fries would complement any summer outdoor meal that you are planning for the summer. Recipe adapted from here

3 cloves garlic, minced (or more fresh garlic for extra punch)
2 tablespoons canola oil
3 large baking potatoes, 12 ounces each
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
Finely grated parmesan cheese

1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

2. Heat the garlic and oil in a small saucepan over medium heat for 2 minutes. Strain the garlic from the oil with a small mesh strainer. Set both garlic and oil aside.

3. Cut the potatoes into 1/4-inch sticks. In a large bowl, toss the oil, potatoes and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Lightly spray cooking spray on parchment paper and spread the potatoes onto it in a single layer. Bake until golden and crisp, about 35 minutes.

4. Remove potatoes from the tray with a metal spatula. Toss with parsley, reserved (and fresh) garlic, and additional salt, to taste. 

5. Finely grate parmesan cheese on top. Serve immediately.

So easy! Now you can enjoy these at home too!
