Oven Baked Loaded Garlic Fries tossed in slightly warmed chopped garlic, olive oil and kosher salt, just like you enjoy at the ball game!
Easy, stadium-worthy Garlic Fries
Loaded Garlic French Fries are one of the main reasons I love going to ball games (Go Dodgers!) and outside of the amazing Dodger dogs and giant bags of salted peanuts, it isn’t a baseball game if your breath isn’t all garlicky!
I make fries two ways in our house. The first way is the easier one and the method I used on these garlic fries. Packaged frozen french fries!
Wait! No! Don’t click away! Haha, I am kidding, but yes, it is pretty unlike me to use frozen french fries. The thing about french fries though, is that while they may seem so easy to make (potatoes, oil…done right?) they are actually a long process to do correctly, like with my In-N-Out Animal Style Fries. There is the peeling, cutting, soaking, drying, first fry, rest, second fry.
When I am running low on time or want a quick fix, I grab a bag of frozen fries (I love Alexia and Cascadian Organic), bake them and toss most (kids get unseasoned) of them with a seasoned topping. The garlic and olive oil are my favorite hack because it makes instant garlic fries!
loaded fries flavoring/topping ideas:
- Cheddar powder and powdered milk with a bit of salt for Cheddar and Sour Cream Fries!
- Blue Cheese Powder (this is my new addiction since I discovered it at the Fancy Food Show in January) and chopped bacon.
- Taco Seasoning packet with a dipping sauce of sour cream and a bit of hot sauce mixed in.
- Creole Fries the Bold Creole seasoning from Tony Chachere’s (another Fancy Food Show find I’ve loved!)
- Ground or fresh (super finely minced) ginger, a touch of sesame oil mixed with canola oil, minced garlic and salt dipped in teriyaki sauce
So grab some fries, toss them with this garlic/olive oil for easy, but delicious garlic fries. But make sure you are surrounded by those who will love you no matter how strong your garlic breath is!
- 1 bag frozen french fries
- 6 cloves of garlic , very finely minced
- 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- chopped parsley for garnish
- Cook the fries according to the directions on the bag.
- When the fries come out of the oven, put them in a large bowl.
- A minute or so before serving the fries, put the garlic in a small fry pan with the oil.
- Heat on medium and cook for 15-30 seconds, not long enough to brown the garlic, just long enough to take mute the raw garlic flavor.
- Toss the fries with the garlic oil mixture and salt.
- Serve hot and garnish with parsley if desired.
Great recipe, thanks!

These look SO delicious ? ?! So going to make these! We don’t have a frozen French Fries ? bag so we’ll just make and bake these puppies from scratch. Then we’ll make them into HEAVENLY garlic fries! Thanks for sharing the recipe, Sabrina!
These were amazing, and everyone including my 2 and 3 yr old picky eaters!!! Only way I make them now!!
So glad you all love them, Lisa. Thanks for the 5 stars.
I’m making these tonight. Had these yesterday in Florence, Oregon and I paid $7 for an order. They are delicious! Thank you for showing me how to make them.
You’re welcome, Judy!
Sounds like a smart plan!
These are amazing! I swapped out dried cilantro for parsley, and added just a bit of Kraft grated parm. I am not sharing these!
French fries look delicious. My son loves the dried foods. I will try… Thank for sharing!
Thanks Vicky! I’d love for you to come back after making them and let me know what you think!
I pinned these. They sound absolutely delicious, and I like your other suggestions too.
Thanks for the pin Liz!
Yum! A restaurant where we used to live served delicious Garlic Fries but I never thought I could do it frozen French fries! I’ve had Alexia Sweet Potato fries before so maybe I’ll grab the regular ones next time.
Yes! Oh also, this works so well with sweet potato fries too!
Fries likie these are a huge reason why I cannot lose weight! These look way too good for their own good!
French fries are heaven to me, I would pick them over any dessert any day, so I totally agree with you!
I just used up the last of my potatoes for dinner tonight and I am SO bummed out! I am going to get some more this week and make these for sure- they look SO good!
Thanks Chelley! I hope you love them!
I love, love, love garlic so I can imagine these would be utterly delicious!
Me too, I was going to add even more garlic and had to restrain myself so my poor husband wouldn’t be overwhelmed by it!
These are happening for dinner tomorrow night for sure. My goodness Sabrina, these look amazing.
Yum! Those look and sound so good! My hubby will definitely be making me some of these soon! lol
My kids are going to love these fries. I will have to try a few season mixes for lunch.
This is a great way to dress up your fries. This is a great idea for this weekend.
Those look amazing! I’d love to make these for my family soon. I know my husband would love them. He loves anything garlic.
Is it wrong that I now want a french fry bar that has all of the flavor varieties you listed in front of me all at once? I am certain I would go from flavor to flavor until they were all gone!
No! That sounds like heaven on earth!
What a great way to change up frozen fries. This would be great when there isn’t much time to make my own.
These look so good, I must make them one kid free weekend for my bofyriend and me!
Frying french fries twice may seem tedious, but the effort is so, so worth it. Forget Animal Style–these look fantastic!
Tedious for sure! But I hate soggy fries, so I do it when I make them at home. This is why I love ordering fries when we go out, I don’t have to do all the work!
Sabrina….. you make me drooling with this post.. This is absolutely perfect for my kid and ME!! 🙂
Aww thanks Citra!
oh my goodness, now these look delicious. I love french fries and anything with garlic. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. Sounds great
Thanks Shauna! My husband was hovering around the photoshoot waiting to eat them, so they were a hit here too!
