French fries. A favorite, and one of the first foods to give up when your’re on a diet. But there’s no reason you have to, especially if you use your oven instead of a fryer. And I’m Italian, so I have a special love of garlic. 30 minutes in the oven and you’ll have great fries that are satisfying, and a little healthier. This is a single serving recipe for when you need a great side, but if you’re entertaining or making it for your family, just multiply the recipe by the number of people you’re serving. These fries would be a great side for my Turkey Burger w/ Avocado & Roasted Red Peppers!
What you need:
1 medium sized potato.
1 clove of garlic
A couple dashes of dried rosemary
A couple dashes of salt
Olive oil (preferably in cooking spray form)
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray (or drizzle with olive oil). Chop up the potato into standard fry shapes (about a quarter inch thick.) I use a mandolin. Makes it a lot easier. But knives work just as well. Spread out the potatoes on the baking sheet. sprinkle the garlic, rosemary and salt on the fries. Put the fries in the oven. After about 15 minutes, flip the fries. Bake for another 15 minutes.
They won’t be quite as crispy as they’re fried counterparts, but they do get a nice little crisp on them.
