Servings 2


  • 1 large Russet potato (scrubbed and dried)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 garlic clove (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley (or 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat leaf parsley)


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Cut the potato in half lengthwise. Then cut the halves lengthwise into fourths to make 8 wedges. If your potato is very large, consider cutting it into more than 8 wedges.
  • Toss the potato wedges with the olive oil, salt, and minced garlic in a large bowl. Place onto a metal baking sheet. If desired, line with aluminum foil sprayed with cooking spray. Spread potatoes into a single layer.
  • Roast the potatoes for 30 - 35 minutes, until cooked through, brown, and crispy. Don't shake or turn the fries while they're cooking. The longer they sit in contact with the metal baking sheet, the crisper they get. Keep a close eye on them toward the end to ensure the garlic does not burn.
  • Toss the fries in a big bowl with the cheese and parsley, and serve hot.
