How to make perfectly seasoned fries
Start by slicing your potatoes until they’re about the thickness of your pointer finger. Remember, they’ll shrink a little bit in the oven. Spread them out on two baking sheets, being sure not to crowd or stack them, in order to ensure they bake evenly.
Next, mix your spices together in a small bowl. Drizzle your fries with olive oil and toss until they’re evenly coated. Then sprinkle your seasoning mixture on top and toss again.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until they reached your desired crispness. Be sure to give them a toss/flip half way through to ensure all sides are getting baked.
Lastly, place your fries into a bowl and add the parmesan and parsley and mix it up. I like to reserve a little of both to sprinkle on top before serving.
***Let your kids help out by using their hands to spread the potatoes with the oil and seasoning. They’ll love it!
