How to make garlic parmesan fries

Here are some tips to making garlic parmesan fries

  1. POTATOES: Leave the skin on the potatoes for extra crispiness. Also choose potatoes that are shorter they make the perfect fry length.
  2. GARLIC: Use REAL garlic. Not the minced kind from the bottle. Legit garlic cloves always.
  3. PARMESAN CHEESE: You can use whatever you have on hand. I prefer the powder parmesan cheese because it creates a nice crust, but the shredded will also create a crustiness too, it is just harder to coat with it.

Baking Garlic Fries

The key to baking crispy fries is

  1. OIL:  Make sure they are well coated!! I also prefer to use thinner oils like vegetable oil for these. It really crisps them up!
  2. FLIP: Half way through flip them over. Stir them up. Get that oil and all the sides nice and hot and toasty.

PARCHMENT PAPER: I Prefer parchment paper over foil when baking any fries. It doesn’t rip like foil or get sticky. They stay  operate from their baking tray and crisp up perfectly!
