Garlic Parmesan French Fries

Hi there! We have been snowed (more like iced) in all day. I had such a hard time sleeping last night with freezing rain hitting the windows..it was crazy. It's only 12 degrees here right now, that is crazy for Texas! It's not supposed to be above freezing until Friday, so it doesn't look like this ice covered snow is going anywhere! My poor little doggie slides around every time we let her out in the backyard to potty, I can't lie though, it is pretty cute :) I have 3 more Super Bowl recipes to share with you guys that I will be done posting by Thursday. Tonight's recipe is SO freaking delicious! We made these along with some chicken Parmesan sandwiches, but I could have totally just been content with these fries, they are insane! They are somewhat similar to my Garlic Parmesan Potato Wedges, but pretty different at the same time. My husband loved these too, which is always a plus! If you didn't want to make homemade fries, you could totally bake up your favorite frozen ones and then do the whole garlic parm thang to those, they would still be out of this world! Hope you enjoy :)

2 Large Russet Potatoes
1 Large Garlic Clove
1/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese, shredded
3 Tablespoons Butter
1 Tablespoon Flat Leaf Italian Parsley, chopped
Oil, for frying
Wash your potatoes and cut into strips that resemble french fries. Place your fries in a bowl and add a drizzle of oil over them and cover with a microwave safe lid or plastic wrap and steam in the microwave for 3:00 minutes. I have a glass bowl with a steam lid that are made just for steaming, I love them! They are from Pyrex. While your fries are steaming, heat up your oil on medium high, it should fill a large pot about halfway full. Carefully place your steamed fries in your oil and fry until golden brown and then transfer to a paper towel lined cookie sheet or plate to soak up excess grease, and also season with salt immediately. Unpeel your garlic clover and slice it in half and put it into a bowl with your butter and microwave until melted, then remove the garlic clove. Place fries in a large bowl and pout butter over them and then the Parmesan cheese and parsley. Toss fries to make sure everything is coated evenly. Serve.
