Baked Garlic Cilantro Fries

I’ve figured out, I really can’t eat plain fries anymore. I recently took my nephew to BRGR and said “we should order the truffle fries”. As a 16 year old, I think he was a little scared because he asked if we could order regular fries. Although we intended to share, we both gravitated toward our personal picks. This is for my friends with adult palates.

2-3 potatoes
1 T. olive oil
1/8 to 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. sea salt
pepper
1/8 c. cilantro

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line cookie sheet with foil and place a wire cookie rack onto it. Cut potatoes and soak in cold water for a few minutes. Dry. Toss in olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Once fries are done, toss in cilantro.

Notes:

  • If you don’t use a wire rack, flip fries half way through baking.
  • Shortcut recipe, use coating on pre-made frozen fries. I baked 20 minutes and it was probably a little too long.

Caramel Sea Salted Brownies

I ran across this recipe a few weeks ago in The Kansas CityStar’s Sunday coupon section of the paper. Very easy and flavorful recipe. However, I think my recipe for the Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies is even better.
