Baked Garlic Fries

In college one of my favorite restaurants was called Silvergreens and they had these amazing garlic fries that I would always get as a side. I don’t like to make fries often because of the huge amount of fat and the acrylamides that form when baking/frying the potatoes, but they are SOO good sometimes I can’t resist. I adapted this baked garlic fries recipe from Ellie Krieger on the Food Network.

  2. Cut the potatoes into ¼-inch fries using a julienne blade on a mandoline slicer or with a knife.
  3. In a large bowl, toss oil, garlic, salt, pepper and potatoes together.
  4. Spread the potatoes onto a greased baking sheet in a single layer.
  5. Bake about 40 minutes, or until golden brown (turn after 20 minutes to bake both sides).

    I just had a college flashback – I’m thinking we went to the same school, because I loved Silvergreens (one of my roommates worked there, free food!) and they had amazing fries. I have Ellie Krieger’s cookbook with this recipe bookmarked – I don’t know why I haven’t made them yet, but I’m thinking I should!
