Garlic Fries

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.

How to Make the Best Homemade French Fries

These homemade french fries will be the best you have ever made. With the addition of sea salt on top these fries have an added layer of flavor.

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.
