So I started out simple with some spruced up fries to accompany my barbecued chicken burger with caramelized onions and brie. I have to confess, French fries are one of my weaknesses, I can’t resist them, whether they are from a fast-food drive-through or a fine restaurant or covered in gravy and squeaky cheese curds disguised as poutine. These garlic fries aren’t really fries, but rather, delicious potato-y, garlicky baked goodness. Still they’ll satisfy your craving for fries every time in a healthy way. They come out golden brown, tender on the inside and crisp outside. First, they're roasted at high heat until crisp and golden. Then you toss them in melted garlicky-butter and shredded Parmesan cheese. A final toss with chopped parsley gives them that real French bistro feel. They have received rave reviews so believe me....you must try them!!!
Before I share the recipe I would like to thank Giz of Equal Opportunity Kitchen , Ruth of Once Upon a Feast ,Gloria of Canela's Kitchen, Katie of Thyme for Cooking and Sarah of All Our Fingers in the Pie for bestowing upon me the Happy 101 fellowship award. And all I have to do is write about 10 things that make me happy.
