Garlic Cheese Fries
Sometimes I feel like an old lady. I’m 24 years old yet I hate clubs (they’re just too loud), bars (they’re also too loud and I can’t stand the smell of alcohol), and I don’t like coming home past 7 PM (it gets too dark afterwards!). To top it off, I went to bed at 8:45 PM last night.
I know that it’s so out of the norm to be going to bed so early but in all honesty, I think I like being an “old lady.” I like staying home on a Friday night and whipping up an amazing batch of cookies late into the night, and if I could, I’d sleep at 9 PM everyday!
Anyway, being the non-24 year old that I am, I made these fries again. Yep, double deep-fried french fries – deep fried is the only way to go, right?. But instead of the whole buffalo sauce shebang, I topped them off with a garlicky cheese sauce. It was kind of like the nacho cheese you get at the movie theaters except it’s 100000x better and much more gourmet.
Okay so maybe it’s not exactly like movie theater nacho cheese but it had that thin cheesy texture just blooming with so much garlic flavor. If only movie theaters actually had this kind of cheese sauce…
How To Make Baked French Fries
Making these oven-baked Parmesan fries is super easy! And cutting the potatoes into fries is super-easy too &ndash you don&rsquot need to have superb knife skills or a special slicing machine! You will laugh when you learn of my potato slicing trick below :)
- Slice the potatoes. To slice the potatoes into fries shape, you just cut them into eights lengthwise. That&rsquos it! No fancy shapes, no potato matchsticks, no nonsense! Yes, these are fairly large fries that are really potato wedges &ndash so what, that&rsquos a &ldquochef&rsquos special&rdquo home fries :)
- Dry the potatoes with the paper towel to absorb all excess moisture. This will help the baked fries be crispy, not soggy!
- Put the potato fries in a bowl and toss with olive oil, then toss with grated Parmesan cheese so they are evenly coated on all sides.
- Spread the fries on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheets in a single layer, so the fries are not touching each other. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder and Italian seasoning.
- Baked in a pre-heated 425F oven to 30 minutes, or until the fries are golden-brown.
- Sprinkle the baked fries with remaining Parmesan cheese.
There you have it &ndash crispy, delicious and healthy oven-baked french fries! Serve these fries immediately for maximum crispness. Enjoy!
Prepare the French Fries
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Pour your olive oil into your pan along with the crushed garlic. Add a pinch of salt.
Turn on your stove to a medium low heat, and cook for about 5 minutes until your garlic resembles the color of light brown sugar.
Place your potatoes into a large bowl, and pour your oil and garlic mixture over it THROUGH A SIEVE! Set aside your crispy garlic bits.
Lay your potatoes onto a parchment lined baking sheet (preferably real). Do not overcrowd them.
Bake until the potatoes have developed a nice golden brown color, about 45 minutes.
Sprinkle them with a generous pinch of salt. (I use truffle salt.) Pour over the parmesan and the garlic bits.
Baked Parmesan Fries
Once you’ve soaked the fries, drain & dry then place back in the bowl. From there it’s just a case of coating in oil, garlic powder & s&p, then stirring in parmesan. Make sure you don’t let them sit too long, otherwise the salt with draw out moisture from the fries.
How to bake parmesan fries?
There’s two really important steps here that’ll ensure your parmesan fries come out crispy. The first is to ensure you space the fries out on the tray. This is to not only ensure they don’t stick together, but it’ll also ensure they don’t steam (as opposed to roast). The second tip is to make sure your tray is greaseproof. Purely for the fact that the fries will stick to the tray and become difficult to remove.

Garlic Aioli and Parmesan Fries
These Garlic Aioli and Parmesan Fries are a super simple way to dress up your plain fries and a must-try for garlic lovers!
My sister lives in Toronto, so she has infinitely more restaurants to explore than I do living in a small town. She'll often tell me about some of the delicious dishes she's enjoyed and she knows enough to provide lots of details. I am, after all, a serial re-creator!
When she was describing these fries to me, she explained that they basically "hoovered" the whole plate. That's about all I had to hear. I knew I'd be re-creating these. Thankfully, this was one of my easier re-creations, as it's more of a how-to than a recipe :)
No matter how you make your fries (baked, fried, fresh-cut or frozen), the simple addition of a toss in garlic aioli and Grano Padano (or Parmesan) cheese will take your fries to a whole new level and are a perfect side for whatever meat you're cooking on the grill!
For these, I went with a cheater aioli that is basically dressed up mayonnaise. You can certainly make your own aoili, from scratch. There are a ton of recipes on the internet. But we're talking about fries here and I thought cheater would be just fine. The garlic aioli is drizzled on the hot fries, tossed, then sprinkled with the Grano Padano and tossed again. I added a bit of chopped flat leaf parsley, just for colour.
The garlic aioli basically melts in to the fries, giving them great garlic flavour. The grated Grano Padano sticks to the moist fries and coats them with cheese. If you'd like, you could also drizzle more over the top of the fries for more creamy garlic goodness.

Crispy Baked Garlic Parmesan Fries
Do you ever feel like you take on the weight of other peoples struggles or situations?
Worrying that they will be ok, that they are making the right decision, or that God sees them and will take care of them.
Today I just realized that I have been carrying around this huge &ldquoweight&rdquo or burden for someone else, but its not mine to carry.
I have been worried about a friend of mine as she moves onto a new stage in her life. Worried that she is making the wrong decision, that she is making a horrible mistake and all I can do is just sit by and watch it happen.
Sometimes I think the &ldquoweight/burden&rdquo I emotionally carry shows itself in physical ways and this was one of those cases. Almost like God was giving me a warning sign, saying &ldquohey, you are carrying a burden you don&rsquot need to carry!&rdquo I have had a headache for at least two days and I finally decided to pray about it and ask God what is going on. Sometimes He says something and other times he doesn&rsquot.
I heard him say that I need to let my friend go.
After I prayed through all of those feelings, worries, anxieties &ndash and was able to &ldquolet her go&rdquo and the weight that I had been carrying I immediately felt some of my headache be relieved.
The truth of the situation is it&rsquos not my decision to make and me worrying about it is not going to change the outcome. I may not fully understand the reasoning behind the decision and I don&rsquot have to. I don&rsquot know the plans God has for her. I just need to trust that God knows exactly what path she is walking down and He will take care of her. And I can and will be there to support her no matter what happens.
Are you worrying about anything that is not your burden to carry? Your child, your parents, a friend, a co-worker? Let it go, your &ldquoload&rdquo will feel a lot lighter! No need to carry around baggage that you don&rsquot have to.
Now, as long as we are on the topic of releasing burdens and worries &ndash how about I relieve some anxiety about Fries?
Not all fries are created equal, nor are they all created &ldquounhealthy.&rdquo
In fact these Crispy Baked Garlic Parmesan Fries are they answer to your healthy fry question.
They are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, but the flavor you get from the fresh rosemary and thyme combined with loads of freshly minced garlic &ndash well let me just tell you, its heavenly!
I figured with having burger recipes all week last week you needed a little something to eat with it and these Garlic Parmesan Fries are just the answer. They take about 30 minutes to make so you can easily just throw them in the oven while your preparing the main course!
No dipping sauce needed with these bad boys, they pack enough flavor punch by themselves Hope you enjoy!

Skinny Garlic Parmesan Fries
These delicious fries are baked in the oven with garlic, a little olive oil, kosher salt and black pepper, then sprinkled with freshly grated Parmesan and parsley – to die for!
Inspired by a night out with friends, my girlfriend ordered something very similar although fully fried and I couldn’t stop eating them – I knew I had to make them at home!
Yesterday I set out to see if I can recreate them, and luckily I had a houseful of people who helped me taste test them. BIG HIT with everyone in my house!! You don’t miss the fact that they are not fried at all, and the garlic smells amazing while it’s baking in the oven. I listed them here as 1 serving which is basically one potato per person, but you could share them if you were serving them as a side.
I made two batches and baked them on two baking sheets because the key to making them crisp is to make sure they all lay flay on the baking sheet, you don’t want to crowd the pan.
To cut them, I used my mandolin and sliced them into 1/4-inch thick slices. Then I took a knife and sliced them into 1/4 inch thin strips. If you cut them thicker you’ll have to adjust the cooking time. Next time I may try my paderno slicer and see how they work out spiralized.
And for those of you who are scared of potatoes, I just want to remind you potatoes are good for you! They are rich in fiber, potassium and magnesium, which are all listed as shortfall nutrients in the American diet. Plus, they are naturally gluten free and part of a clean eating diet!
