Garlic French Fries without a Deep Fryer

These homemade French fries are so good, and very quick and easy. They are made in a skillet on the stove. I whipped them up one night while cooking dinner. My kids were starving and we ate these as an appetizer while our dinner was in the oven.

To make these, a French-fry cutter is your best friend. I also have a garlic peeler and slicer set, which makes peeling and slicing garlic a 30 second task.

3 or 4 medium potatoes
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. black pepper
6 cloves fresh garlic, sliced
4 tbsp. peanut oil (I used olive oil because it's what I had, and it was fine)
More salt & pepper to taste

Slice the potatoes into fries (this is where a French-fry cutter comes in handy!) I didn't peel mine and they were great. Heat the oil in a skillet on medium heat. While the oil is heating, slice the garlic.

Put the garlic in the skillet to infuse the oil. After about a minute, add the potatoes, garlic salt and pepper. Stir occasionally.
Adding potatoes to oil
After about 7 minutes, turn the potatoes. Continue stirring occasionally. After another 7 minutes or so, the potatoes should be done. Remove from oil, put on a plate with paper towels to soak up the excess oil, and serve. Add more salt and pepper if needed.

These French fries were a great appetizer while we waited for our dinner to cook. My family inhaled them!
