California's Ballpark Garlic Fries

California’s Ballpark Garlic Fries

No trip to a California ballpark is complete without a hot dog and an order of garlic fries.

1/4 cup butter
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley
4 generous cups thin french fries, cooked until crispy

In a small saucepan over low heat, melt butter; add garlic and saute 1 minute; add parsley and mix well. Set aside and keep warm. When fries are cooked, place them in a large bowl, toss with garlic sauce and serve immediately.

Makes 4 servings
