Pinterest Review: Cheesy Garlic Fries in Foil

The other day I decided to make burgers.  Because I hadn't had a burger, in while, and I was really craving a good burger.  Living way out here, you just don't get your pick of a good burger joint, so I made my own.

I also had some potatoes that really needed to be used, so I decided to try this pin that I'd seen...

Cheesy Garlic Fries in Foil

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or more, to taste
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 pound red potatoes, cut into 8 long wedges
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, garlic, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Place potato wedges onto prepared baking sheet and fold up all 4 sides of the foil. Spoon the olive oil mixture over the potatoes. Fold the sides of the foil over the potato wedges, covering completely and sealing the packet closed.
  • Place into oven and bake until tender, about 30-35 minutes.* Sprinkle with cheese; then broil for 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the potatoes are crisp.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with sour cream and chives, if desired.
*Baking time may need to be adjusted depending on the thickness of the potato wedges. 

Ohmygoshtheseweresosogood!  I could not believe how good these fries were!  And, I didn't even make the cheese sauce, it was just the potatoes with the garlic mixture on top.  

Now, were they that good because it'd been over two weeks since I'd had fries?  Maybe.  But I don't care because they were just so freaking good!  They are definitely going on my "to make again" board...
