Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Serves: 2-3
  • 2 russet potatoes, cut into ¼" fries
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp salt (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 450 F. Place one oven rack in the lowest slot on the bottom (closest to the heat source).
  2. In a small sauce pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add minced garlic and cook for about 1-2 minutes until garlic is fragrant and just slightly golden. Drain garlic from oil and set aside for later.
  3. Toss potato slices with garlic oil, salt and pepper. Lay french fries in a single layer. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and flip over and bake for another 15 minutes. Each side should be golden brown and crispy. Note: check fries often to make sure they do not burn. They may take slightly longer or shorter depending on your oven heat.
  4. Remove fries from oven. Toss with reserved garlic and parmesan cheese. Serve hot with ketchup!
