Print Recipe


  • Baking pan (18 x 24 works well).


  • 4 large russet potatoes cut into 1/8" strips
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme chopped
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • ½ tsp black ground pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp parsley fresh, chopped


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Toss potatoes with oil, butter, salt, pepper, thyme, Parmesan, salt, and pepper.
  • Place in a single layer on a baking pan. You may need to use 2 pans.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and use a spatula to carefully flip all of the wedges over. Roast for another 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and flip the wedges again. Stir in the fresh garlic. ½Roast for another 8 to 10 minutes: Keep an eye on them, you don't want to burn the garlic!
  • Serve at once with your favorite dipping sauces. (See aioli recipe in the Notes).

If cutting the potatoes in advance, keep the wedges in a container filled with water and a tight-fitting lid.  Drain and pat them completely dry before proceeding with the recipe. 
Figure one medium-sized potato for every person you are serving.  So, 4 medium potatoes for 4 people. 
These fries are definitely best served piping hot.  They will lose their crispy exterior once they have cooled off.
Simple aioli recipe:
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Dijon
Use the back of a fork to mash the garlic into the salt, forming a paste.  Add to the mayo and mix in the lemon juice and Dijon.  Cover and chill for 15 minutes, or preferably, overnight.
