Baked Garlic Parmesan Fries:
4 large potatoes, washed and cut into fries 2 tablespoons olive oil 3 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon onion powder 1 teaspoon paprika 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon black pepper Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish, optional)
Instructions: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, minced garlic, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Mix well. Add the cut potatoes to the bowl and toss them in the garlic and spice mixture until they are evenly coated. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it. Arrange the coated fries in a single layer on the baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until the fries are golden brown and crispy. Make sure to flip the fries halfway through the baking time to ensure even cooking. While the fries are still hot, sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese over them.
The heat from the fries will melt the cheese and help it adhere to the potatoes. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired. Serve the baked garlic Parmesan fries immediately as a delicious side dish or snack. Enjoy your tasty and flavorful baked garlic Parmesan fries!
