  • 2 russet potatoes cut lengthwise into wedges (about 8 per potato)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese freshly grated
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 425.
  • In a medium bowl, toss the potatoes with the olive oil and the salt.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the potatoes in a single layer.
  • Roast for 30 to 35 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese and then the parsley.



Russet potatoes are best because they are high in starch and their long length makes them great for fries. 
Parsley - flat leaf or curly.
Parmesan cheese - freshly grated is best!
