Garlic Parmesan Oven French Fries

Recipe taken from:


  • 4 russet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 tablespoon garlic salt
    • Preparation:

      Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

      Cut potatoes into half-inch thick slices (lengthwise) cut again into 1/2-inch thick fries. Place the potatoes into a pot with cold water and 1 tablespoon of salt. Bring up to a gentle boil and simmer until a paring knife tip goes through easily. Cooked about 3/4 of the way through. About 5 minutes.

      Drain carefully and put in a bowl. Add olive oil, 1 tablespoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Toss well and lay out in 1 layer on nonstick baking sheet. Bake until light brown (about 15-20 minutes).

      Sprinkle with Parmesan and broil for 6 minutes or well-browned and crispy and the cheese is melted and caramelized. Remove and let cool for 2 minutes. Serve.

      Notes & Tips:
      Mat and I made burgers on the grill tonight and since most people have their own special way they like their burgers, I thought I'd put a pretty simple recipe for fries up. I use freshly grated parmesan.

      Good, the ones without parmesan were kinda bland.
