Crispy garlic potatoes

Garlic potatoes

Strongly flavored and crunchy, garlic potatoes are a tasty side dish, for both meat and fish dishes.

The preparation of garlic potatoes is inspired by a recipe belonging to the French tradition, known as "Pommes de terre à l'ail". It is a truly tasty and delicious side dish, whose two main ingredients are those that give the entire recipe its name: potatoes and garlic. The latter should not be removed from the peel, but should be used whole. In this way, the garlic manages to give a very bold flavor to the entire dish. The potatoes are fried in a mixture of oil and butter and then become very crunchy . Prepared in this way, they are suitable for both meat and fish dishes.
