Baked Oven Fries with Spicy Garlic Aioli

Mmm…potatoes! I love potatoes because they are so versatile and can take on a wide variety of flavors and cooking styles. Baked oven fries are a go-to side for me; they are easy and bake in less than 30 minutes! A wonderful accompaniment to a burger, BLT, or sloppy joe.

Did you know you can get the sweet, soft flavor and texture of oven roasted garlic from the microwave?! I used this technique when preparing the spicy aioli. If you have 40-60 minutes to actually roast whole garlic bulbs feel free to use that technique. This aioli is a nice way to switch up the old standard ketchup.

This recipe goes great my Sweet and Spicy Turkey Sloppy Joes!

Ingredients

  • 4 Idaho potatoes
  • cooking spray
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • seasoned salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp dried parsley flakes
  • red pepper flakes optional to taste

Aioli

  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 2 tbsp sriracha
  • 4-5 cloves roasted garlic mashed
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley flakes
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

  2. Slice washed potatoes in half length wise, and then slice into 1/4 inch discs. Place slices into a medium bowl. 

  3. Add garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, parsley, and red pepper flakes. Toss until coated. Arrange in an even layer on cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake until the edges are golden, about 15-20 minutes. Serve with Spicy Garlic Aioli. 

Aioli

  1. Slice the top off of the entire garlic bulb so the tops of the gloves are exposed. Place the bulb in a microwave safe bowl, drizzle with olive oil, 1 tablespoon of water, and a salt and pepper. Cover with microwave safe plate or lid. Microwave at 50% power level for 3 minutes. Bowl will be hot, careful! Turn bulb around in oil to re-coat, and microwave for another 3 minutes at 50% power level. Cloves should be soft and mash-able. Squeeze gloves out of the shells and mash.

  2. In  a small bowl mix all of the aioli ingredients together, along with the mashed roasted garlic. Serve along side oven fries, or top a burger!

Recipe Notes

Any kind of potato can be used for this recipe, you'll just want to adjust portion to be the equivalent of 4 baking potatoes. For the aioli, make ahead of time if possible; this will allow the roasted garlic to flavor the rest of the ingredients.
