MMM Garlic Fries

4 russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2" fries
Oil for frying
Salt, pepper
Parsley (dried or fresh, chopped)
6 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup olive oil

In small pot, heat olive oil, garlic and parsley together until garlic is soft. Dont heat it too fast, or the garlic will burn. once the garlic is soft and barely golden, remove to a bowl. set aside.

Heat oil in deep fryer or deep skillet. Fry the potatoes until golden and cooked through. remove to a paper towel to drain. Salt immediately. Transfer HOT fries to a large bowl, pour the garlic oil over the top, and toss. The fries will absorb the garlicy oil and mmmm, soooo yummy!! Sprinkle lightly again with salt, and pepper.. Serve HOT!

Italian Pork Cutlets


Italian Style breadcrumbs, OR
1/2 sleeve crushed saltines, and 1 TBLS Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning
4 boneless pork chops
Oil for frying
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup flour
Salt and pepper

Prepare your meat by pounding out the chops until they are thin. You want them to be pretty thin so they cook through.
Heat oil (about 1/2" deep) in skillet.
Dip each chop into flour, then into egg, then coat very well with Italian seasoned crumbs. I used the saltines, and the texture is perfect!
