Servings: 6 Servings
- 2 pounds russet potatoes (about 3 large) unpeeled
- 1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 3 garlic cloves minced
- 3 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan cheese (see note below)
- 2 tablespoons minced flat-leaf parsley
- Salt to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Cut potatoes lengthwise into slices that are 1/3-inch thick and then cut each slice into 1/3-inch thick strips. Dry the potatoes between paper towels or kitchen towels. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, olive oil, and 1 teaspoon kosher salt. Divide the potatoes between 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper, spread into a single layer.
Bake until the potatoes are golden brown, about 40 minutes, turning the potatoes every 10 minutes and rotating the racks halfway through baking. In the last 5 minutes, sprinkle the garlic over the fries.
Place the cooked potatoes in a large bowl and toss with the Parmesan cheese and parsley. Taste (careful – they’ll be hot!) and season with additional salt if necessary. Serve immediately.
