From thinly cut, thickly cut, crinkly cut to curly kinds, fries do take up many form but are basically potatoes cut in desired shapes and deep fried to crisp. Now do they have to be deep fried to be crispy? I guess not, they can be baked and be as tasty if not better than fried ones. I topped these fries with garlic and Parmesan cheese and I couldn’t stop myself or my kids from snacking them. Some recipes are better without long introduction as the dish by itself is so attractive that lengthy introduction doesn’t do any justice to the post and fries being one among them magnetizes everyone with its taste and fame. So without further delay here is the recipe for garlic parmesan baked fries.
Recipe from here
Potatoes — 4 (cut in 1/4 inch strips)
Olive oil — 1/4 cup
Italian Herb Seasoning — 1 Tbsp
Grated Parmesan Cheese — 1/2 cup
Seasoned Salt — 1/4 tsp (optional)
Garlic — 3 cloves minced
Dried Thyme — 1/2 tsp (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 425F. In a bowl mix olive oil, salt, Italian herb seasoning, garlic, and thyme if using. In a larger bowl toss fries and half of the olive oil mixture. Spread it evenly on a baking sheet in a single layer and bake it for 30 minutes, flipping the fries half way through the baking process.
2. Remove the fries from oven in to a bowl and toss the remaining olive oil mixture and 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese. Return to oven and bake until parmesan melts about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup parmesan cheese and salt. Optionally top with basil or parsley for added flavor. Enjoy!!!
