Baked Garlic Parmesan Fries


Baked Garlic Parmesan FriesA good homemade french fry goes perfect with sandwiches, salads, and soups. These skinny baked Garlic Parmesan Fries are topped with parmesan cheese and fresh basil, talk about tasty. I had lunch the other day at a new spot in Santa Monica and I was blown away by their parmesan fries so I decided to recreate my own days later.

If you like making your own fries, be sure to check out my earlier recipe with Garlic Aioli with Oven Fries. I obviously think  garlic and french fries are a good combination.

I do have to warn you, your home may smell like garlic while you are making these. I soaked the potatoes with fresh garlic cloves for a couple hours to flavor the fries.

Baked Garlic Parmesan Fries
Prep time
Total time
Oven baked Garlic Parmesan French Fries.
Serves: 2 servings
  • 3 medium sized potatoes (use about 1½ potatoes per serving, I made this for two)
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic (use 1 clove of garlic per potato you use)
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Shredded parmesan cheese
  • Salt to taste
  • Optional but recommended - fresh basil leaves, shredded
  1. Wash and prepare your potatoes, I sliced mine lengthwise and into thin strips for skinny fries.
  2. Peel the garlic cloves and slice them into pieces.
  3. Add the potatoes and garlic to a bowl, fill with water until the fries are covered and place plastic wrap over the bowl for 2 - 3 hours. This is how you add a little extra garlic flavor to your fries.
  4. Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Drain and pat the fries and garlic dry and place them on a large nonstick baking sheet.
  6. Drizzle with oil, garlic powder and black pepper.
  7. Bake for about an hour, checking the fries halfway through and flipping them.
  8. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, salt and basil right out of the oven.
