Baked Parmesan Garlic Fries

I was going to blog about my many cake adventures over the last couple of birthday filled weeks but then I made something yummy for dinner and decided that the cake has waited this long, what’s one more post?

So I made pulled pork sliders for dinner, nothing special, I make them all of the time. But I had a serious brain fart as to what I make to go with them. Seriously. I can’t remember. Maybe I don’t make anything and that’s why I can’t remember. But anyhow I am getting something of a reputation at hubby’s work as a good little cook and housewife {ha! and double ha! on so many levels…ha!} so I couldn’t send him sliders for dinner without a side dish. The only acceptable side dish for pulled pork sliders in my culinary world is either fries or mac and cheese and I just made mac and cheese for Easter {the pan is a nightmare to clean so I would never make it twice in the same month let alone week. Yep, I need to forget about the cleaning before I make it again….}. So I decided to make fries because I remember pinning this but I didn’t have any stinking marjoram {seriously, does anyone??} so I made my own version. I like the garlic parm fries that Red Robin used to have {or maybe still has…??} so I made mine with garlic and parm and no stinking marjoram.

Baked Parmesan Garlic Fries 

Potatoes {1 per person for medium potatoes like Yukon gold or 1/2 per person for large Russet}

2-3 tbsp olive oil per potato

1-2 heaping tbsp parmesan cheese per potato

1/8-1/4 tsp garlic powder per potato {or 1/2-1 tsp diced garlic per potato}

kosher or sea salt {to taste}

{Note:measurements are not exact because potato size will vary, you will just have to use your judgment}

De-structions:

1. Preheat oven to 400. Prepare a bowl of cold, salty water.

2. Cut potatoes into fry shapes by cutting lengthwise in several north-south direction cuts and then again in several east-west direction cuts. Soak in the cold salt water for about 10 minutes.

3. Drain fries and pat dry with a towel. Put into a plastic bag with the rest of the ingredients and shake and massage bag until fries are covered completely with the oil, salt, parm, and garlic.

4. Lay in a single layer on a greased cooking sheet {just use cooking spray or a Misto} and bake for 25-30 minutes.

 

Yeah….they were alright

I shoveled them in my mouth ate them plain but Tyler dipped his in my homemade ranch dressing.

It looks like I need to make more….

Oh and here are the sliders.

Yes, he is eating dinner in his robe. Outside.

It’s just pork roast that has been braised in Sprite in a crock pot on a King’s Hawaiian roll topped with Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce {the best IMO} and cheese. It’s just whatever….

But yeah…baked fries rock!

  1. Those fries look super duper good, I’ll have to give them a go sometime soon. thanks! I accidentally bought fresh marjoram instead of oregano recently. stupid marjoram.
