I love french fries. Mmmm. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve met one I didn’t like. But these Parmesan cheese fries really win the prize for ultimate deliciousness. Yes, I did just use deliciousness. The flour and Parmesan add the perfect amount of crunch to a fry! See? I bet you’re already sitting there salivating at your screen.
To avoid costly eating out for this satiable craving in your life, why not try making them at home? Anything to help save on the food budget is a total win in my book.
Making Parmesan Cheese Fries
(See the full recipe listed below.)
We have used normal Idaho spuds for this recipe, but red or yellow potatoes could also be a good option if you want to change it up. When making fries at home, I do recommend cutting them into thin strips, as they will cook better.
Soaking your potatoes in water will help make them more crispy. After they soak, pat the excess water off. Don’t get them too dry; the flour and Parmesan need to stick to the water.
Shake the fries in the cheese and flour mixture and then place them on a tin foiled tray.
Here is what they should look like after they are cooked. If they are not crispy, you can broil them for a minute or two for extra crunch.
Now it is time to ENJOY! We love adding a little fry sauce to dip!
