Garlic Fries
Recipe from Fine Cooking Books

I have to confess, french fries are one of my favorite foods. I can't resist them, whether they are from a fast-food drive-through or a fine restaurant. Luckily, these garlic-laced "fries" satisfy my cravings in a more healthful way. They come out golden brown, tender on the inside and crisp ouside. A final toss with chopped parsley gives them that real French bistro feel.

    1   tablespoon 
    finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Heat the garlic and oil together in a small saucepan over medium heat for 2 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. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray and spread the potatoes on it in a single layer. Bake until golden and crisp, about 35 minutes.
Remove the potatoes from the baking sheet with a metal spatula. In a serving bowl, toss them with the parsley, reserved garlic, and salt to taste. Serve immediately.
