  • 16 ounce bag frozen French fries, I used shoestring with the skins on for this recipe but any kind of french fry will work
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 minced garlic cloves or 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • ground black pepper to taste


  1. 1.Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cover a baking sheet(s) with parchment paper or foil. Spray with cooking spray and set aside.

    2.In a large mixing bowl, toss the frozen fries along with garlic, 2 tbsp cheese and pepper.

    3.Lay out potatoes in a single layer on sheet pan(s). Make sure they are not overlapping. This is important for crispy fries.

    4.Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes. Take one out and taste. They should be slightly crispy. Sprinkle the 1/4 cup of grated parm over the fries. Put back in the oven for another 5 to 10 minutes.

    5.Check after 5 minutes. Try not to over bake them. They should be crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Serve up! Enjoy!
