Ellie's Oven Fries Recipe

Ellie's Oven Fries Recipe

"French fries are my favorite food," says the Food Network's Ellie Krieger. Here's how she gets that crisp, oil-fried taste without all the oil.


  • 2 large baking potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon of minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of canola oil
  • 1/2 tespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh Italian parsley


Heat the oven to 450° degrees. Heat minced garlic and canola oil together in a small saucepan over medium heat for 2 minutes. Remove the garlic from the oil with a small mesh strainer or slotted spoon. Set both the garlic and the oil aside.

Cut potatoes into 1/4-inch-thick matchsticks. In a large bowl, toss together the oil, the potatoes, and salt. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray and spread the potatoes on it in a single layer. Bake them until they are golden and crisp, about 35 minutes, flipping them halfway through.

Transfer the potatoes to a serving bowl and toss them with finely chopped, fresh Italian parsley, the garlic, and salt to taste. Makes 4 servings.
