- Serves: 4
- Prep Time: 10m
- Cook Time: 25m
- Ready In: 35m
- 5 Russet Potatoes
- 4 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1/4 Cup Parmesan, freshly grated
- Fresh Chives, chopped
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Peel potatoes and cut into half-inch thick slices. Cut again into 1/2-inch thick fries. Place the potatoes into a pot with cold water and 1 tablespoon of salt. Bring up to a boil and then simmer until a knife goes through the potatoes easily. They should be about 3/4 of the way cooked. Drain potatoes put in a bowl.
Add olive oil, 1 tablespoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Toss well and lay out in 1 layer on nonstick baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees until browned and crispy (about 10-20 minutes).
When the fries are ready, sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese and fresh herbs on top of the fries and put them back in the oven for about a minute to let the cheese melt.
Serve in a creative dish for visual appeal. Sometimes I use large paper cups.
