Baked Fries with Garlic Butter are loaded with my favorite two things garlic and butter. If you have never tried garlic butter fries, you are missing out.
Some of my favorite Baked Fries with Garlic Butter ever are made at New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood Company in New Orleans. Fried from New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood.
I now live in Arkansas and truly miss the delicious famous One-Handed BBQ Shrimp Po-Boy’s and Garlic Butter Fries from New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood. I have tried to make Baked Fries with Garlic Butter myself, but they never tasted as good. After cutting my potatoes, I rubbed them down with oil, salt, pepper, and Cajun seasoning. Next, they went into a 500 degree oven until crispy, tossing them several times. While the potatoes are in the oven, melt the 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 way to make them a little better. While the fries are baking, melt the butter in a skillet and add the chopped garlic. Cook the garlic until very fragrant. When the fries finish baking, simply toss them in a pan with the garlic butter. It makes a big difference cooking them this way. I adapted my recipe from Jeff Mauro Garlic Fries at Food Network. He uses a lot of herbs in his recipe, and I do not, but I added a link to his recipe if you want to add them.
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!
