Oven Baked Garlic Fries


4 Idaho russet potatoes (medium size)
2T Olive Oil divided
1t Garlic (finely chopped)
4T Parsley chopped (Italian or curly will do)
1t Sea Salt (or Kosher salt)
1/2t Black Pepper Cracked


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash potatoes, but leave skin on. Slice potatoes in round 1/4-inch slices. Start with Idaho potatoes (they're best for frying or baking because of the starch to moisture ratio); they fry up crispier and bake up fluffier.

Put in a large bowl and toss with 1T of oil, coating evenly. Spread out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or sprayed with non-stick spray to prevent potatoes from sticking.

Bake in oven for 15 minutes, rotate pan then bake additional 15 minutes, total baking time 30 to 35 minutes or until potatoes turn golden brown.

Do not overcook, potatoes should be slightly brown on the outside and white and fluffy inside.

Remove from oven and immediately place in large bowl add parsley, garlic, salt and pepper tossing and coating potatoes thoroughly.
