Garlicky Baked Fries

These are one of my fave ways to do fries.  The mega garlic, and subtle kick of the cayenne work in perfect harmony.  And you know how it goes with mega garlic, everybody's gotta eat 'em.  But with these oven baked fries you won't hear any complaints...except from maybe our Mr. 5 year old resident picky pants.  But he's picky about everything, sooooo, grain of salt and all that!

Garlicky Baked Fries
Recipe Adapted From: Lottie and Doof

6 garlic cloves, minced
6 Tablespoons canola oil
3 russet potatoes, washed and cut into wedges
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 465° F. Combine the garlic and oil in a large bowl and microwave until the garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute.  Meanwhile, combine the cornstarch, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne in a small bowl.
Take about 5 tablespoons of the oil and use to grease the baking sheet, leaving the garlic behind.  Add the potatoes to the bowl with the remaining oil and garlic, and toss to coat. 
Sprinkle the spice mixture over potatoes and again, toss to coat. Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and bake 30 to 40 minutes, turning once halfway.  Serve alongside, a juicy burger, or salad, or just a bottle of ketchup!
