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.  


Best Garlic Fries In Louisiana

I now live in Arkansas and genuinely 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.  YEAH, I finally found a delicious way to make Garlic Butter Fries. 

How Did I Make These Garlic Butter Fries

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, 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.  I added a link to his recipe if you want to add them.

Your Family Will Loves These Garlic Butter Fries

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!

  1. Our farm is in the Chippewa Valley of Northern Wisconsin, exclusively growing Garlic “Hardneck varieties” for seed and eating. This garlic farm is my passion, and is taken care of from planting to harvest and beyond with a great amount of care and attention. This garlic has been raised using only organic methods and sustainable farming practices. Garlic Farming is done with a lot of manual labor, “mainly myself”. The garlic is planted by hand, harvested with pitch fork, cleaned and graded, again with caring hands. This year we planted over 50,000 plants, all by hand. I had a lot of help from the kids and their friends, this is the most labor intensive part of growing, however when we put that last clove in the ground — ahhh!!

  2. What a great recipe! My family and I love fries and this would be a great way to change them up. Not sure if the little ones would like it, but I know the hubby and I would! Thank you for linking up at #MerryMonday!
