Garlic-Dill Baked Potato Fries
I have a huge love of potatoes. I eat them as my whole meal a lot of times, whether they be mashed, smashed, in a hash brown, or baked. There are so many different ways to cook them up, and last night I decided I wanted to marinate them in some dill pickle juice and some garlic. I love those strong flavors. I remember I used to eat chips like that back in the day, but, I no longer indulge in greasy, oily fare like that.
So, here is the recipe for how I made these, and they do marinate overnight. I wouldn’t let them marinate any less than 8 hours because the flavors just won’t absorb right. The longer you marinate them the better, in other words.
Now, I didn’t add salt to mine, but, if you would like to do that, go right ahead! In fact, adding salt will bring out the flavors a bit stronger. These are not overpowering in any way, with just a hint of the garlic and dill flavors once baked. They are delicious!
Also, there is a trick to getting them crispy, and that is to add a bit of wheat flour to the mix. You’ll see in the recipe. There is no oil in this recipe.
Please join me over at Dani’s Kitchen on Facebook as well, where a community has just begun. I’d like for this to be a community where others share their recipes and commune with eachother in a positive atmosphere!
