Rosemary Garlic Fries – Crispy and Baked to Perfection

Who doesn’t love a good crispy french fry?  When you add a sprinkle of rosemary and some garlic, oh baby, these rosemary garlic fries are seriously the BEST! No more wimpy, flimsy, and tasteless potatoes. These crispy fries are baked to PERFECTION!

Many of you know, I have a deep love for ROSEMARY and I use this herb frequently in my cooking and enjoy its beauty in my garden. If you don’t have a rosemary plant in your garden, I highly recommend you get one and get it planted. You can read more about it HERE.

The SECRET in getting a crisp fry is soaking the potatoes in water and cooking at a high temperature. Potatoes have a lot of starch and for extra crispy french fries, you need to remove some of that starch. You can do so by soaking the cut potatoes in water.

Ingredients

  • 6 medium russet potatoes, peeled and sliced into ½ inch sticks
  • 4 tablespoons olive/avocado oil
  • 4 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped fine
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced

I have to share with you my latest favorite KITCHEN-GADGET-GOTO. This garlic press has made mincing garlic so much easier. I love that it is so easy to clean and that there is no wasted garlic.

  • 4 tablespoons olive/avocado oil
  • 4 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped fine
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced

INSTRUCTIONS

1

Peel and wash potatoes. Let me tell you, having a decent vegetable peeler makes the world of difference in your peeling experience! I love this peeler.

2

Slice the potatoes into ½ inch sticks.

3

Soak the sliced potatoes in a large bowl of cold water 30-60 minutes,
whatever you have time for, the longer the better.

4

Preheat the oven to 475 °( 246 C)

5

Strain the potatoes and pat dry with a paper towel or tea towel. Dry the
bowl they were in and place them back in the bowl.

6

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and drizzle with half the
oil. Spread the oil evenly on the pan.

7

Add the remaining oil, rosemary, salt, pepper, and garlic to the bowl of
potatoes. Toss well to evenly coat the potatoes.

8

Transfer the coated potato slices onto the baking sheet and arrange them in
a single layer.

9

Cover with a sheet of foil and bake for 5 minutes. Remove the foil and bake
for another 15 minutes. Take the pan out of the oven and turn the fries over
with a spatula, keeping them in a single layer.

10

Place back into the oven and cook for another 3-5 minutes. Flip the fries
one more time and cook for another few minutes until golden brown and crispy.

11

Remove fries from the oven, add additional salt if desired, and serve with
your favorite dipping sauce.
