Take-out Tuesday, Steak House Fries with Garlic and Parsley

Let’s start by saying that my husband  is really spoiled  is really sweet, but he rarely raves about anything.   He LOVED these potatoes, said they were they best he’d ever had, and even mentioned them again the next day~

So in another words, you might want to try these 😋

They are so EASY to make, just cut regular baking potatoes into planks.   Cut potatoes in halves horizontally first then slice each half into thick slices, and then cut the slices in half again, forming potato “fingers or planks”

Put the potatoes on a well sprayed, foil lined baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and season

Once the potatoes look like this, about 40 minutes or so, toss them with a little more oil mixed with garlic and parsley

So much better than boring old french fries

And because the potatoes are roasted with the skins on, they not only have more flavor, they are much more nutritious

And yes, they are perfect with a little steak on the side!

    I’m a big fan of roasted potatoes! As a matter of fact… aren’t potatoes good for breakfast too???:@)

    My kingdom for a potato! These look great Jenna and so easy too, not to mention that I hate peeling potatoes. My husband jokes that if I was on death row, my last meal would be French fries and Chardonnay 🙂

  3. I love the idea of using garlic and parsley to season the fries. Such a unique combination. And I always love me some fries 🙂
