About

We live by a little restaurant in Snohomish that serves the most amazing garlic fries. Chef Chris at Mongo’s drowns his fries in shredded garlic, and serves them with an amazing jalepeno dip. I think I’ve died and gone to heaven!

As you can imagine, I don’t eat Chef’s fries as often as I’d like to, or my waistline would explode. Last night was burger night, so I decided to make a lighter version of Chef’s amazing garlic fries.

I must admit my fries were pretty darn good, and with considerably fewer calories and fat, I was a happy camper.

Happy cooking!
