So, my brother has once again sent me a fantabulous recipe to share via my blog. I think I am slowly turning him into my assistant with all of the glorious treats he has unearthed for me in the past month. All part of my master plan, of course. And I am sure that following this post, I will be deemed North American Food Blogger of the year or something ridiculous. I swear, every time I post one of his recipe finds, I get presented with some new accolade. Not that I am complaining by any means, but it’s killing me in the sibling rivalry realm.
Anywhoo, this recipe is of particular interest to me. Why you ask. One word: potatoes.
Basically, if I could choose one food that would probably sustain me through eternity, it would be the potato…in ANY form really. Well, that and bagels, with bacon at a distant third, so if I ever really do have to choose one food for a lifetime, I am more or less destined to live out my life in a plump, tater-tot-esque fashion. What a pleasant thought, but I digress.
These fries are actually a baked version of those served up at he San Francisco Giants’ AT&T Park, hence the nod to San Fran in the recipe title.
I absolutely CAN NOT WAIT to try these. I mean, when placing ‘garlic’ and ‘fries’ in the same sentence, you are pretty much expecting utter magic to happen. I have to say that it also tickles my funny bone a bit that they tell you to cut them into such specifically sized ‘batons.’ Just sounds so industrial and comical. I can picture myself instructing someone in the kitchen saying, those are strings…I wanted BATONS…BATONS I tell you!! Egads!! I am certain that this has a purpose related to evenly cooking, but funny nonetheless.
But, there I go digressing again, so without further adieu…here is the recipe. Please leave me a comment or two if you try these, cause there is nothing I like more than appreciaters waxing poetic over these simple, yet satisfying little tubers.
