Nom. Nom. I love oven fries! I'm going to try these as I like my fries spicy. Is granulated garlic like garlic powder?


Wednesday 8th of February 2012

Yep. I updated the recipe to say either/or.

These look yummy! I saw a show once where they tested the best methods to get crispy potatoes and the key was preheating the pan. What is granulated garlic?

It's like garlic powder.
