I had a bag of store bought french fries in the freezer and thought that instead of just baking them plain I'd doctor them up a little. Not only will it give them more flavor, it will also make them fancy enough to serve dinner guests. Perhaps the kids will even be adventurous and try something new. Last night I made garlic and parsley flavored fries. I'm thinking if you are a cheese lover, after they are baked you could even sprinkle some grated parmesan cheese on top. Here's the recipe I came up with!
Serves 4-5 people
1 bag store bought french fries (whatever variety you prefer)
1 cup parsley, roughly chopped
4 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place parsley, garlic, salt, and olive oil in a mini food processor and process until finely chopped. If you don't have a food processor, combine ingredients in a small bowl, but be sure to mince garlic and chop the parsley very finely. Pour parsley mixture over the french fries in a large bowl and use your clean clean hands to distribute it evenly over the fries. Place fries in a single layer on a greased baking sheet and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. If you want to add parmesan cheese, do so now. Serve with ketchup or a spicy mayo and enjoy!!
