Light Bites group is back and you should join us. I love this group so much because it motivates me to actually blog, which is a hobby I love too.
I actually made the fries last week but I got Mike to take the picture on his camera and well....we got busy...kids got sick...and now I am late posting! Grrrrr.... Oh well.
I am not a big potato fan and I only buy potatos when I actually have a purpose for them. I had some baby potatoes in the cupboard so I decided to pull out my mandolin and make match stick fries. I love this recipe! The fries were delicious. I liked the addition of the cheese, it made them just that much better.
adapted from Cooking Light
4 teaspoons canola oil (I used olive)
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 pounds peeled baking potatoes, cut into 1/4-inch-thick strips
2 tablespoons butter
8 garlic cloves, minced (about 5 teaspoons)
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons 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.
