Heat your oil to 365 degrees F.
Cut your potatoes into matchstick size pieces. Drop in water as you cut them and soak them up until you are almost ready to drop them in. For fries that aren't quick and easy you can soak for 1 to 4 hours, but when you're hungry for fries NOW this will get 'er done.
Once the oil reaches the right temperature take your potatoes out of the water, rinse them and then dry them with paper towels. You can skip the soaking if you've gone past hungry and hit the point of hangry. This is a judgement free zone.
Once you are sure your potatoes are patted completely dry (trust me, throwing wet fries into a fryer is a good way to get the oil to bubble over and burn the dang house down, dry your potatoes well my friends) you want to carefully drop them in small batches into the hot oil. Let them cook for a few minutes, 3 to 5 should get 'er done. I like mine crispy.
Use a spider to lift them out, and not I don't mean one of those 8 legged things, it's a wire tool for lifting things like fries out of fryers. Handy dandy, you need one, or three in your life. Trust me.
You want to toss each batch into a metal bowl and quickly pour some garlic oil over top and toss some parsley in too. Now toss those suckers in the bowl a few times. Keep tossing till the oil and parsley coats the fries well.
Continue with each batch until all are cooked.
For added garlic zing you can take the garlic cloves from your oil and slice them up super fine, then toss them in when you do the fry, oil, and parsley flips in the metal bowl. Adds a whole other level of garlic awesomeness.
Serve with a big old garlic loving smile.
