Garlic Fries

I've been going through all my old cooking magazines, searching for new recipes to try. These garlic fries certainly caught my eye! The recipe makes 6 servings, so you may want to half it if you're serving a small family.

We really enjoyed these when we made them, but I think the garlic is a little heavy handed. You could probably half the amount of butter and garlic and these would still be very tasty and satisfying.

I found the recipe in Cooking Light.

4 t canola oil
3/4 t salt
3 pounds peeled baking potatoes, cut into 1/4-inch strips
cooking spray
2 T butter
8 garlic cloves, minced (about 5 t)
2 T finely chopped fresh parsley
2 T freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 400. Combine first 3 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag, tossing to coat. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400 for 50 minutes or until potatoes are tender and golden brown, turning after 20 minutes. Place butter and garlic in a large nonstick skillet, and cook over low heat 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add potatoes, parsley and Parmesan cheese to pan; toss to coat. Serve immediately.
