You’ll never guess these crispy fries with spicy garlic are baked not fried!
We live by a little restaurant in Snohomish that serves the most amazing garlic french fries. Chef Chris at Mongo’s drowns his fries in shredded garlic, and serves them with an amazing jalapeno dip. I think I’ve died and gone to heaven!
As you can imagine, I don’t eat Chef’s fries as often as I’d like to, or my waistline would explode. Last night was burger night, so I decided to make a lighter version of Chef’s amazing garlic fry recipe.
I must admit my baked french fried potatoes were pretty darn good, and with considerably fewer calories and fat, I was a happy camper.
Happy, healthy cooking!
