Fried potatoes (frites)

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Baking potatoes; scrubbed, dried
\N \N Oil
\N \N Salt
1 \N Clove Garlic
½ cup Mayonnaise
¼ teaspoon Coarsely ground pepper

To make the Garlic Mayonnaise: Smash garlic clove into puree. Stir garlic puree into mayonnaise and season with pepper. Refrigerate until needed. Cut potatoes into thin sticks about 3 inches long. Heat about 3 inches oil in large pot over medium heat until temperature reaches 275 degrees, about 5 minutes. Add potatoes and fry until cooked through but still pale, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to keep potatoes from sticking together.

Increase heat until oil is about 375 degrees and continue frying potatoes until golden brown, about 5 more minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels.

Sprinkle with salt to taste. Serve the fries with Garlic Mayonnaise for dipping. Yields 4 servings.
