Who doesn’t love french fries? I bake the frozen ones for the kids all the time, but I’d never tried to make them myself. It wasn’t difficult at all though. I unsure if the kids would eat my Thyme and Parmesan Fries, because they can be funny with seasonings, but they loves them just as much as Kevin and I.
We don’t have a fryer, but there were still quite a few recipes not requiring one in the Frites: Over 30 Gourmet Recipes, the Thyme and Parmesan Frites being one of them. There are over 30 gourmet recipes inside. The book itself is very attractive looking. This would make a great gift for the french fry, or rather frites lover in your life.
According to the recipe you should bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees, but mine took longer, about 30 minutes and I raised the temperature to about 400 degrees for the last 10 minutes.

- 2 lb nicola potatoes I used Yukon Gold
- 2 tsp parmesan cheese grated
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 3 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
- sea salt crystals
- freshly ground pepper
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Peel potatoes and soak in cold water. Rinse thoroughly and cut thick wide slices so that you can then cut them down into thin french fry sticks.
- Rinse the sticks again and dry carefully with a clean cloth. Place in a large bowl and toss with olive oil until coated.
- Sprinkle with the Parmesan and the thyme and place the oiled frites into a freezer bag. Close tightly and shake thoroughly to disperse the seasonings evenly. Open the bag and add salt and pepper and then close and shake thoroughly again.
- Spread out onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper or a silicone liner.
- Cook in preheated oven 20-30 minutes. Check the seasonings at the end of the cooking time and enjoy immediately.

This sounds like an easy recipe. I can’t wait to try it out.
This sounds delicious! I be my family would love these!
I love french fries so much and it just so happens that parmesan is my favourite cheese; this is something I must try!
Those look very tasty. I do have a question is there a difference between frites and fries or is it just another name for the same thing.
I’ve used parmesan on my fries before but never thyme. I need to try it though!
OMG these sound amazing! I love thyme, but never thought to sprinkle it on my fries. Genius!
These look great and I know I would love them. Pretty sure most of my family would too. I always find that I have to bake things like this longer also.
