What’s the perfect complement to any meal? Easy Parmesan garlic oven fries, of course. This side dish is simple to make, and full of flavor.


  • 4 medium-sized russet potatoes
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for the pan
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Slice potatoes into equally-sized wedges and place in a large bowl. Add enough cold water to cover, and 1 teaspoon salt. Set aside to soak for 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 425˚F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil.
  3. Rinse potatoes, drain in a colander, and lightly pat dry with paper towels. 
  4. Add potatoes, olive oil, cheese, and garlic to a large bowl. Toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and continue to toss until evenly coated.
  5. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet in a single layer, without any overlap.
  6. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until golden and crispy, flipping halfway through.
