Salt & Pepper Oven Fries
- 1 pound russet potatoes, cut into
3 1/2-inch long by 1/2-inch wide sticks
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 3 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
Combine the potatoes and 2 tablespoons oil in a large bowl, tossing well to coat. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the center of the oven 15 minutes, turn the potatoes and bake 15 minutes longer or until golden brown and crisp. Remove from the oven and transfer to a large bowl.
Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Pour oil and garlic over the potatoes, and add the salt, pepper, and parsley; toss well. Serve immediately.
