Kitchen Guy Chesapeake Garlic Fries

 

8 garlic cloves
6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 6-ounce russet potatoes, skin on and cut into 8 to 10 wedges each
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1.5 teaspoons Kosher salt
1.5 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon Old Bay or JO Seafood Seasoning mix

Preheat oven to 450 F. Using a press, crush the garlic and combine with the oil in a large microwaveable bowl. Warm 1 minute, until the garlic is fragrant. Strain out the garlic, leaving the oil in the bowl. Add the potatoes to the bowl and toss to coat. Cover the bowl and microwave on high 3 to 6 minutes until the potatoes are translucent around the edges. Shake the bowl to redistribute the potatoes halfway through cooking.

Combine and sprinkle the cornstarch, salt, pepper, and seafood seasoning over the hot potatoes and toss well to coat. Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake, turning once, until deep golden brown and crisp, 30 to 40 minutes. Serve with sour cream or mayonnaise.
