The first time I was ever exposed to garlic parmesan fries was at Boscos in Memphis, TN. Not only do they brew brew, but they serve up some amazing food. It is one of the lab’s favorite places to go when we need to get away for the lunch hour.
However, it’s a 25 minute drive from where I live to these fries. Once I leave downtown after the end of the day, I often lack motivation to go back before morning. So let’s make them at home, shall we?
These oven baked fries are easy to make because you use pre-cut fries, which are a magical creation located in the friendly freezer section at a grocery near you! In the end, the fry is pure garlic-y glory and perfect with ketchup.
BAKED GARLIC PARMESAN FRIES
4 cups frozen fries (I used Kroger’s frozen crispy fries)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3/4 tsp salt
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup fresh Parmesan, grated
2 Tbsp fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat lightly with non stick spray, set aside.
- Toss the fries in the olive oil, salt and minced garlic in a large bowl. Place the fries onto the prepared baking sheet, spreading to a single layer.
- Roast for 20-25 minutes, flipping once, until brown, and crispy. Toss the fries in a big bowl with the cheese and parsley and serve hot.
