When it comes to football, the next best thing for any sports fan is the clothing they wear on their back and the food they put in their stomachs. On game day fans love to tailgate the games or gather with friends and family around a big screen television within the home. Many will serve up those quick appetizers, hot/cold sandwiches, wings, dips, and basically anything we can grab with our fingers during special game-changing plays or during halftime.
When it comes to Americas most loved and served up snack, we focus a lot on the potato. After all there are so many ways they can be prepared and enjoyed. The French fry alone is one food that will make our stomachs start to grumble just as soon as we smell its deliciousness cooking.
French fries are always a huge hit they go with anything we basically eat, and when purchased frozen require little to no fuss at all. For a football game as special as Super Bowl 50, let’s make those fries extra special too – with little to no extra fuss, and I can show you how.
This recipe is quick, delicious, and every guest will be coming back for more! When served alongside the wings, chicken fingers, veggie and fruit trays you have a touchdown of a meal! Enjoy!
Parmesan & Garlic French Fries
- 5-6 cups of frozen French fries
- 2 Tablespoons of olive oil (I love those infused with garlic)
- 3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
- ¼ teaspoon of salt (no sea salt)
- ¼ – ½ cup of grated Parmesan cheese (depending on how much you love cheese)
Heat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place the potatoes in a large bowl. In a separate bowl mix together the oil, garlic and salt, then toss with the potatoes.
Arrange your fries in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes and/or until golden brown, stir them up at least once during baking time.
Once done, sprinkle with cheese, toss lightly, and serve immediately.
Double this recipe if you are entertaining a large gathering, and have a bowl of Ranch Dressing ready for dipping into, delish!
