Garlic fries

One of hubby's favoret American "things" The garlic looses it's pungent taste for a sweeter more sooth flavor once it's brown and crispy.

What ya need...

3-4 large potatoes Yukon gold or Idaho. ( gold is better )
1/2 stick real butter or a few teaspoons of ghee
2 whole heads of fresh garlic skinned and sliced
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese ( optional )

What ya do...

slice the potatoes into fries. I keep the skin on. and fry until just brown. While the fries are cooking in a wok ( I love using a wok for everything but it really helps get the potatoes coated well with this) melt the butter and add the garlic, cook the garlic until it is lightly brown and crispy, be careful not to burn it.
Once both the garlic and the fries are cooked toss the fries with the garlic in the wok and add the cheese. Salt is not normally added as the butter or ghee is usually sufficiently salty.
