Garlic Potato Fries




Its Friday! That means it's time for another Your Recipe- My Kitchen Post.

I have been making these Garlic Potato Fries from The Purple Foodie for quite a while now.  Honestly, I don't know why I hadn't posted them sooner.  I always make oven baked fries but I was looking for something a little different one day and I stumbled onto this recipe and now this is the only way I make oven fries.  I veered from the original recipe by omitting the microwave as well as the parboiling step, you can check the original recipe for info on this. I also changed the garlic oil step a bit too - we are a garlic loving family so I had to make the most of the garlic.  I love the addition of the cayenne - just be careful if you are feeding little ones.  Enjoy!

What you need:
8 garlic cloves, minced
6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 russet potatoes (about 8oz each), each cut into 12 wedges - I actually used about 5-6  Yukon Golds
3 tbsp cornstarch
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
½ tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

What you do:
 Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  In a small saucepan add the oil and saute the garlic briefly, until fragrant.  Add the potatoes and the garlic with the oil to a large bowl and toss to coat.  Combine the corn starch, salt, pepper, garlic powder and cayenne in a small bowl then add to the potatoes tossing everything together.  Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 30-40 minutes, turning once.  Serve with ketchup, mayo, or my favorites chipotle mayo or a yummy Ravigote sauce.

  3. These look great! I make baked fries to, but my family really misses the frozen kind you can get at the store. This just may be the answer to that. Thanks for sharing, and thanks for dropping by my blog and commenting. Have a great weekend! :)
