Parmesan-Ranch Oven Fries

By Brooke McLay |

I never used to eat French Fries.  I was a college girl and wildly conscious about not overextending the curve of my supple hips.  But, sometime in the middle of the third date with my future husband, I sat eyeballing a tray of french fries he’d ordered from a fast foint joint.  Gosh, if those little sticks of potatoes didn’t look divine.  I snuck a bite, and thus ended my non-french fry eating days.  These crisp-coated oven fries, which were baked up last week in the fits of a snack attack are ridiculously delicious.   The secret is a thin layer of egg, cornstarch & parmesan which, when roasted in the oven for almost an hour, puffs up and wraps itself around these pretty potato spears, and turns them into the most amazing baked french fries that you’ve ever eaten.  Overextended hip fat be danged.
