Garlic-Chive Fries

There is just something about making your own fries and baking them as opposed to picking up a bag in the frozen aisle at the grocery store. The taste is completely different and as long as you have a sharp knife, the amount of energy put into making homemade fries is pretty minimal.

I don't know why but I never seem to think of different combinations for fries myself and always have to rely on recipes. When I saw this one in the June/July issue of Taste of Home I knew I needed to make it right away, and not just because I bought a chive plant at the wonderful world of Wegman's.

Ingredients:
    • 2 large russet potatoes
    • 1 tbsp. olive oil
    • 1 tbsp. fresh chives, chopped
    • 1 tsp. garlic powder
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 1/2 tsp. pepper

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 450. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
2. Rinse and scrub the potatoes. Cut in half and then into julienne strips of equal sizes.
3. Place in a large bowl. Drizzle the olive oil over the potatoes. Sprinkle the chives, garlic powder, salt and pepper over the potatoes. Toss well to coat.
4. Spread the potatoes in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, flip fries over and bake an additional 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

Yum! These fries have great flavor!
