Crispy, cheesy, salty and no condiments needed…. That's what Parmesan fries are like! I could eat them anytime, anywhere. I especially love making them for my potato fry enthusiast, 4 year-old son, Max. First of all, the kid adores fries but when I tell him it's going to be parmesan fries, he goes batty for them.
They are really easy to make and the addition of the parmesan makes them seem like a gourmet side dish when in reality, they are just simple french-fries with cheese on top. And come on, what doesn't taste better with cheese on it?
A funny incident happened recently during dinner at a local greasy-spoon diner. We were all ordering our food (hamburgers and fries) and when it came time for Max to order, he said to the waitress "I want a cheeseburger and parmesan fries please. Please make sure they are parmesan fries. Thank you." She got such a tickle from him that when his order came to the table, the cook had spread some parmesan cheese over his little order of french-fries. Oh man did he love that! Since then I can't stop him from ordering them everywhere we go!
