Fabulous Oven Fries
Recipe from Food and Wine
2 large baking potatoes, cut into 4-by-1/2-inch sticks
(*note-I used a Madeline)
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon each of minced sage and rosemary
1/4 cup freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese (*note-I grated fresh parmesan)
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 425 Degrees F. In a large bowl, toss the potato sticks with the olive oil until evenly coated. Spread the potato sticks on a rimmed baking sheet in a single layer and bake in the upper third of the oven, turning once or twice with a spatula until they are golden and crispy, about 30 minutes.
2. Sprinkle the minced garlic and herbs over the fries. Roast about 5 minutes longer, until the herbs are fragrant and the garlic is lightly browned. Transfer the fries to a bowl and toss with the grated Pecorino Romano. Season with salt and pepper.
