Baked crispy garlic fries are cooked in foil packets for easy clean-up.


  • 3 large russet potatoes washed and sliced into 8 wedges per potato
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp finely chopped parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut a sheet of foil large enough to fit all the potato wedges and seal them. You can either make one large packet or 3 small packets for individual servings.
  2. Fold up sides of foil to form a loose boat. Lightly brush the inside of the foil boat with oil. Place potatoes into foil and brush all sides of the potato wedges with oil. Sprinkle garlic evenly across potatoes. Cover potatoes with foil and seal edges. Place foil packets onto a baking sheet.
  3. Bake potatoes for about 30 minutes or until tender. Open up foil packet(s) and spread potatoes out so they are not overlapping, with the skin side facing up. Sprinkle with cheese. Sprinkle with salt, if desired. Place potatoes back into oven and switch oven to broil. Broil potatoes until edges turn crisp and cheese is melted (this took around 5 minutes for me, but you should watch your potatoes closely so they don't burn). Remove potatoes from oven. Garnish with parsley. Serve while potatoes are still crispy.
