Fabulous Oven Fries
Serves 4
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.

  1. I think fries dipped in ranch are quite possibly my favorite 2 things on Earth. I'm thinking that I need to make this recipe and I'm thinking I need to not share. I might not even need the ranch! Stranger things have happened! ROLL TIDE! (I hope you tune in next Saturday for the UA LSU game and I hope you send some love my way. I'm going to need it)
