The perfect side dish is crispy garlic potatoes

Garlic Potatoes

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

The preparation of potatoes with garlic 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 the ones that give the entire recipe its name: potatoes and garlic. The latter should not be deprived of the peel, but should be used whole. In this way, the garlic manages to give a very bold flavor to the whole 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.
