Comforting Baked Garlic Parmesan Fries

by | Apr 18, 2022 | Side dishes | 0 comments

Baked garlic parmesan fries are one of my favorite comfort foods. Growing up, my mom would cook up a batch of these delicious fries as a special treat for my brother and I. This recipe is my version of her classic, with a few tweaks to make it even more flavorful. The combination of garlic and parmesan is always a winner, and these fries come out crispy and golden-brown every single time. I guarantee that you and your family will love them!

  • For extra crunch: Add 1/4 cup of panko breadcrumbs for an extra crunchy texture.
  • For a spicy kick: Add 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes for an extra spicy kick.
  • For a vegetarian version: Substitute the Parmesan cheese with vegan Parmesan.
