Recipe for easy Parmesan Oven Fries

All you need it potatoes, olive oil, Parmesan cheese and some spices. Usually I have those ingredients on hand, making this dish extra convenient.

Outside of cutting up the potatoes, the cook time is only 30 minutes, so you have a healthy, extra tasty side dish that everyone will love.

One of the keys is to make sure that the fries are in a single layer on your baking sheet. I use a nice jelly roll pan. The reason for this is so that they can really brown best, with the cheese and oil coating on the pan. Also make sure you spray or oil the pan well, because they do tend to stick. However, this is what gives them their yummy crispy golden brown texture. You could also use a Silpat mat to help with sticking.

You can make this with other kinds of potatoes too. Skip the Italian seasoning or substitute it for another favorite blend. You could also use a different type of oil or cheese. Have fun getting creative with this one.

No deep fryer, or salt required for these tasty fries.

Serve them plain or indulge with your favorite condiments, like ketchup or ranch dressing.

  1. Yum! I’ve made oven fries but not with Parmesan cheese. Will definitely try soon. With two teenaged boys, I NEED easy, filling and flavorful ideas for dinner. Thank you!
