No need to give up French Fries! These delicious crispy fries are one of my all time favorites. First they are baked in the oven until golden and then tossed with a touch of butter and cheese for added flavor.
2 pounds baking or russet potatoes, peeled and cut into ¼ inch thick strips
1 Tablespoon canola oil
½ teaspoon sea salt or regular salt
1 Tablespoon butter
5 garlic cloves minced (about 3 tsp)
2 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh parley
1 ½ Tablespoons grated parmesan or reggiano cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a large plastic zip bag, mix potatoes, oil and salt, tossing well to coat potatoes.
Arrange potatoes in a single layer on baking sheet.
Bake for 45 minutes or until potatoes are golden brown. (Using a spatula, turn over after 20 minutes)
In a large nonstick skillet, cook butter and garlic over low heat for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add potatoes, cheese and parsley to the pan. Toss gently to coat. Serve right away.
