These delicious fries are baked in the oven with garlic, a little olive oil, kosher salt and black pepper, then sprinkled with freshly grated Parmesan and parsley. They remind me of those long skinny fair fries you get in a disposable cup…remember those? Yes, please! Oh, and don’t forget the lemon shake up!
I fear that if I make them, I may never stop eating them!
Ta da! Here is the recipe!
Skinny Garlic Parmesan Fries
Calories: 192 • Fat: 6 g • Carb: 32 g • Fiber: 3 g • Protein: 5 g • Sugar: 1 g
Sodium: 69 mg (without salt) • Cholesterol: 3 mg
1 tsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed well
canola cooking spray
1 medium (6 oz) potato, russet or yukon gold, washed and dried
kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
2 teaspoons fresh grated Parmesan cheese (I used Reggiano)
fresh parsley, minced
Combine the oil and crushed garlic in a small bowl.
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
Cut the potato lengthwise into 1/4-inch thick slices; cut each slice into 1/4-inch thick strips. Place on the baking sheet and toss with the oil and garlic and use your hands to evenly coat. Season with salt and black pepper. Place on a single layer onto the greased baking sheet. Bake uncovered in the center of the oven until tender crisp and golden brown, about 10 minutes on each side. Baking time will vary depending on your baking sheet and your oven.
Remove from the oven and top with parmesan and parsley, eat hot!
