Garlic Wedge Fries are my new addiction.
I have been making my recipe minus the garlic for years.
Then, David and I stumbled upon Blue Star Brewing Company in San Antonio.
Their food is amazing and David loves their craft beer.
For me, their garlic fries are a whole new level of addiction.
Since I don’t drive to San Antonio that much,
I decided to do my take on their recipe
Mine are wedges and they are baked.
And, they are pretty dang good.
And, if the garlic isn’t your thing, you can always leave it off.
But you will be missing out.Print
This Garlic Wedge Fries are perfect side dish to serve in place of French fries. YUM!
- 3 large Russet potatoes
- Ice water bath
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 2 Tablespoon Lawry’s Seasoning Salt
- 1 Tablespoon course ground black pepper
- 6 Tablespoons finely chopped garlic
- 4 Tablespoons melted butter
- Cut the washed and dried potatoes into large wedges.
- Place the wedges in an ice water bath for a few hours to remove the excess starch. (I have even left them soaking overnight). The longer they can soak, the better.
- Drain the wedges from ice water and pat dry with a paper towel.
- Place in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil.
- Toss to coat.
- Then sprinkle on spices.
- Toss again.
- Place the wedges on their side on a oven safe rack placed on top of a foil lined baking sheet.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Place in the oven and bake 40-50 minutes, depending on the size of your potato wedges.
- Using tongs, turn the wedges to the other side about 30 minutes into baking.
- While the wedges are baking, melt butter.
- Toss the chopped garlic in the butter and saute for approximately 3 minutes.
- Once the wedges are baked, remove them from the oven and place them in a bowl lined with a paper towel.
- Drizzle the melted garlic butter over the fries.
- Serve immediately.
