I’ll be honest: This latest semi-french fry recipe is sort of blowing my mind. So crispy and loaded with yummy garlic and Italian flavors. I could never turn down garlic and cheese on fries and I think you won’t be able to, either!

Fries are my weakness. Many a time my sky-high metabolism’ed younger self and brother made midnight french fry runs to the local Wendy’s/Carl’s Junior/Mickey-Ds/whatever is open. When my siblings and I went to iHop for breakfast, I ordered chicken strips and fries. Pancakes are great, sure, but they just can’t win out over deep fried potatoes and ketchup.

I’ve since tried to get a handle on my addiction in my adult years by ordering fries on the side only here and there when eating out, instead of going with the fries-with-everything motto I endorsed for 20 years. Oftentimes I’ll just share with the husband, he doesn’t mind giving up a few…or 60%. He’s awesome like that.

And when I’m craving fries at home in my sweats, I usually make my own instead of heading out for a to-go order. And these…well, Wendy’s natural cut fries have nothing on these baked garlic parmesan potato wedges! So when I say these are worth making, I really mean it!
