Garlic “Fries”

Photo by Christopher Hirsheimer


3 cloves garlic, minced (about 1 tablespoon)
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 large Russet potatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley


Preheat the oven to 450°F.

Heat the garlic and oil together in a small saucepan over medium heat until the garlic is very lightly golden, 2-4 minutes. Strain the garlic from the oil with a small mesh strainer. Set both garlic and oil aside.

Cut the potatoes into 1/4-inch-thick matchsticks. In a large bowl, toss together the oil, potatoes, and salt. Spread the potatoes onto a baking sheet in a single layer. (Use two sheets if needed)  Bake until golden and crisp, about 35 minutes.

Remove the potatoes from the baking sheet with a metal spatula. In a serving bowl, toss with the parsley, reserved garlic, and salt to taste. Serve immediately.
