I think I've finally figured out the secret to making my favorite fries in the whole world - Red Robin fries! These fries may not taste exactly like Red Robin's, but they're awfully close. Plus they are baked with olive oil and seasoned with fresh garlic, which makes them a healthier option than Red Robin fries fried in who knows what kind of oil.
Baked Garlic Steak Fries (serves 2-3)
2 russet potatoes cut into steak fries (I cut mine once in half and then four times length wise on each half)
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, sliced in half
salt and dried parsley to taste
Preheat your oven to 425F
Brush each potato slice side with olive oil and place on a cookie sheet or pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, turning over the slices once halfway through.
Remove the fries from the oven when they are golden brown. Place them on a couple paper towels or a paper bag to soak up some of the oil.
Rub each side of each fry with garlic. Sprinkle with salt and parsley. Serve immediately.
Variations: Try this recipe with sweet potatoes. Play around with different spices like cayenne pepper and black pepper.
