Some of my favorite fries ever are made at New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood Company in New Orleans. See this link to my post on New Orleans Hamberger & Seafood. They also have a location in Mandeville. I now live in Arkansas and truly miss the delicious famous One-Handed BBQ Shrimp Po-Boy’s and Garlic Butter Fries. These fries are so delicious I tried making them myself, but they never tasted as good. I cut my potatoes up. Rubbed them down with oil, salt, pepper, and Cajun seasoning and baked them 450 to 500 degrees until crispy, tossing them several times. Next, I would melt some butter and add some minced garlic. When I took the fries out of the oven I would pour the garlic butter over the fries. They were good, but I have found a recipe that makes them even better. The following recipe is by Jeff Mauro at Food Network.
If you love fries and garlic butter, I promise you will be making these fries all the time. Your family will be requesting them with every hamburger, hot dog, sandwich, and everything else you make. They are truly delicious!
Recipe for Garlic Butter Oven Fries
- 3 large russet potatoes, scrubbed and cut lengthwise into 12 wedges.
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- salt, black pepper, Cajun seasoning to taste
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 to 3 tablespoons minced garlic
- (the original recipe calls for 1 tablespoon chopped parsley, 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives, 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped) I did not use the herbs on my fries.
Preheat the oven 475 degrees F.
Cut the potatoes into wedges and soak the potatoes in a bowl of water for 10 minutes. Drain the potatoes and pat them completely dry. Drizzle the potatoes with the oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic. Spread them evenly in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Cover tightly with foil and bake 10 minutes. Bake about 10 minutes or until the bottoms are golden brown and then use a spatula to flip them over. Cook another 10 to 15 minutes.
While the potato wedges are baking, melt the butter with the garlic in a large frying pan. Cook until the garlic is very fragrant. Do not burn the garlic. When the potatoes are done, toss them in the pan with the melted garlic and butter. Toasting the fries further in the hot pan with garlic and butter take them over the top!
