These garlic parmesan fries are so easy thanks to store-bought frozen French fries. A few ingredients like garlic-infused olive oil, freshly grated Parmesan cheese, and chopped parsley make them a go-to snack to satisfy a salty craving.


  • 56 single handfuls of frozen french fries (see note)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley


  1. Preheat the oven to the temperature following the French fries package instructions.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the smashed garlic and cook it in the oil just until it starts to brown, about five minutes (adjust the heat, if needed, to prevent over-browning/burning).
  3. Discard the garlic and remove the pan from the heat so the garlic oil can cool off.
  4. In a large bowl, toss the frozen fries with the garlic olive oil. Spread the French fries in an even layer on a large baking sheet. Bake the fries according to the package directions.
  5. Once baked, remove the fries from the oven and transfer them to a serving plate or bowl. Sprinkle the fries with the grated parmesan cheese and parsley for serving.


I used Alexia All Natural House Cut Fries with Sea Salt for this recipe. Depending on the fries used the baking temperature and time may vary.

Additional salt may be needed depending on the brand used. All of the amounts are suggestions, which means improvisation is welcome. Less garlic, more garlic, different herbs, more cheese are all delicious adjustments depending on what you like.
