“Savor the irresistible crunch of Baked Garlic Parmesan Fries—a flavorful twist on classic fries that brings together the goodness of oven-baked potatoes, aromatic garlic, and the savory richness of Parmesan cheese. These fries are a delightful homemade treat that will have you reaching for seconds!”

Baking French fries in the oven is the way to go if you love fries but want to avoid the deep-fried version. If I’m going to enjoy golden brown, garlicky, crispy French fries, it makes sense to cook them in a way that won’t spike my cholesterol and double my fat cells all at once.

I have this somewhat dreamy idea about French fries. Whether I’m dipping Belgian fries into the goodness of steamed clams or mussels, nibbling on pommes frites with a juicy steak au poivre, or munching on British chips from a newspaper cone, fried potatoes have this ability to transport us to charming bistros in far-off places.

After successfully making Baked Zucchini Fries, I wanted to create a French fry recipe using the same method. For this recipe, I slice russet potatoes into thin strips, toss them with olive oil, and bake them with garlic until they’re golden brown. While they’re still hot, I toss the fries with chopped parsley and Parmesan cheese. The result? Crispy, savory fries without the guilt.
