HEAT oven to 425ºF.
CUT 1/4-inch-thick slice off top of garlic; discard. Place garlic, cut-side up, on 6-inch-square piece of foil; drizzle with 1 tsp. oil. Wrap garlic in foil. Cover 2 rimmed baking sheets with additional foil; drizzle evenly with remaining oil.
CUT potatoes lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick matchlike sticks. Whisk egg in large bowl. Add potatoes; toss to coat. Add, in batches, to coating mix in separate bowl; toss to coat. Spread evenly onto prepared baking sheets.
