    s'kat's Note:

    These are a fairly quick and fresh tasting version of steak fries. These are based upon Julia Child's 'Pommes de terre sautees a l'ail'. She also suggests that you can use sage or rosemary in place of the thyme.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Peel potatoes and cut into quarters lengthwise.
    2. 2
      Fill a medium frying pan with about 1/4 inch olive oil and heat to very hot; add sliced garlic until browned and fragrant.
    3. 3
      Remove garlic with slotted spoon.
    4. 4
      Oil should be quite hot, but not smoking.
    5. 5
      Add potatoes and let sit over moderately high heat for about 2 minutes.
    6. 6
      Toss potatoes, and let sit 2 minutes more (this sears the outside and helps prevent them sticking to the pan).
    7. 7
      Continue sauteeing, tossing fairly frequently for 7-8 minutes more, until the potatoes are lightly browned all over.
    8. 8
      Add the unpeeled garlic cloves and toss the potatoes with salt, pepper, and thyme.
    9. 9
      Cover pan and cook over moderately low heat, tossing occasionally, for 8-10 minutes more, until potatoes are tender.
    10. 10
      *Ifnot serving immediately, keep warm on asbestos mat or warming device, but do not cover pan or potatoes will loose their freshly cooked taste.
    11. 11
      *(Just before removing from pan, add freshly squeezed lemon juice, and correct seasoning as neccessary.) At serving time, raise heat and toss the potatoes again for a moment or two.
    12. 12
      Remove from pan with slotted spoon to paper bag.
    13. 13
      Serve with whole clove of garlic: each person can crush the clove with their fork and mix into their potatoes.

      I really enjoyed this recipe. If your family are big potato eaters it may be worth doubling the batch - my toddler and I polished off the lot between us! I used dried thyme instead of fresh. The garlic and lemon juice are excellent touches. Thanks s'kat!

      Pleasant enough and very easy to make. I was impressed by how much the lemon flavour attached to the potatoes. I won't make them again though as they came out just a bit too greasy for me even after I drained them on paper towels. Also, I used 4 small potatoes for 2 of us and it wasn't enough. Perhaps the definition of 'small' is a bit too vague?

      Very good potatoes. My husband was late for dinner, so I put these in the oven at 350° for the last 15 minutes and they turned out nice and brown. I thought they would taste more garlicky with 6 cloves of garlic, but they were very mild tasting. All in all, a good recipe. Thanks.
