Fabulous Oven Fries
Recipe from Food and Wine
2 large baking potatoes, cut into 4-by-1/2-inch sticks
(*note-I used a Madeline)
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon each of minced sage and rosemary
1/4 cup freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese (*note-I grated fresh parmesan)
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 425 Degrees F. In a large bowl, toss the potato sticks with the olive oil until evenly coated. Spread the potato sticks on a rimmed baking sheet in a single layer and bake in the upper third of the oven, turning once or twice with a spatula until they are golden and crispy, about 30 minutes.
2. Sprinkle the minced garlic and herbs over the fries. Roast about 5 minutes longer, until the herbs are fragrant and the garlic is lightly browned. Transfer the fries to a bowl and toss with the grated Pecorino Romano. Season with salt and pepper.
They sound very good.
Mmmm…my kind of cheese fries! I thought that was Parmesan and not Pecorino Romano cheese on there…just kidding 😉
I love those cheesy fries! They look really super!

I think fries dipped in ranch are quite possibly my favorite 2 things on Earth. I'm thinking that I need to make this recipe and I'm thinking I need to not share. I might not even need the ranch! Stranger things have happened! ROLL TIDE! (I hope you tune in next Saturday for the UA LSU game and I hope you send some love my way. I'm going to need it)

These look so delicious, I wouldn't need anything else for dinner! I love roasted potatoes but have never tried a stick version. The cheese and garlic make them perfect!
They do look fabulous, beter than fried.
So simple and delicious. It's the cheese. Always the cheese.

these fries will disappear fast in my house… i bet, right after it comes out from the oven, it will be gone before it reaches the table… for sure!
