Oven Baked Parmesan Fries

The potato gets a bum rap. In the colorful world of vibrant green, red, orange and yellow vegetables the potato is like a poor, little hobo. All dirty and dusty, drab in color, with pock marks all over him. But oh, the glorious things you can do with a potato. I would have to say he gets the vote as my favorite vegetable. You can mash him, fry him, bake, roast or scallop him. He can be stuffed, made into a chip or even a salad. He’s a versatile little fellow.

Such a humble vegetable…but so good

But mama loves her fries. There, I’ve said it, I’m coming clean. French fried potatoes are my absolute favorite food. That being said, I don’t find cooking anything in a vat of oil all that appetizing. So, when I’m at home I like to make my fries in the oven, and they’re  just as good. No, actually better. These are lightly tossed with some olive oil, parsley, coarse salt, fresh black pepper and a pinch of red pepper flakes, and then topped off with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. For me they’re a meal in itself!

  1. OMG ! I just made these fries on Thursday. I wanted “no fry ” fries with my slider dinner ! Yummy !

  2. I just made these for dinner tonight. They were delicious! It was silent all through dinner, which for my family of 5, is a big deal. They loved them, and the “extras” I made for leftovers were gone.

  3. Soaking the potatoes in sugar solution for at least 6 minutes before drying it and cooking it will make it extra crispy. The recipe I saw said something like 1/3 cup sugar to 2cups water.
