My boys LOVE potatoes in all forms from mashed to potato salad to tater tots, to fries. They especially love wedges and steak fries. As mom, I like to mix things up on occasion. So, I am constantly on a search for different ways to top steak fries.
These Garlic and Parmesan Steak Fries are an easy and quick side dish recipe that I am sure your family will love! They go great with any tomato based dish, but do well with pretty much anything! We especially like them with some baked pork chops. 🙂
At our house, we love to spend time together and do quick foods. We call it snack night. Snack night typically consists of appetizer type finger foods and these steak fries certainly top our menu. We can throw them together and put out an entire bar of different goodies and toppings so each person can make their own!
When we do snack night, we usually do board games or watch movies. As my kids get older, our snack night evenings are changing. We sometimes just stand around the kitchen island snacking and chatting.

- Place the potatoes in a mixing bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Season with garlic, thyme, and ¼ teaspoon seasoned salt. Toss until evenly coated.
- Lift the fries out of the bowl and spread onto a nonstick baking sheet in a single layer. Save the remaining oil in the bowl.
- Bake in the preheated oven 30 minutes, flipping the fries halfway through baking.
- Return the fries to the bowl with the olive oil, sprinkle with ½ cup Parmesan cheese and parsley. Toss to coat, then spread again onto the baking sheet.
- Return to the oven, and bake until the Parmesan cheese melts, about 10 minutes.

These work best with big potatoes, but not baking potato sized. Seriously, you need to try these! I bet your children will love them as ask for them more often.
When we make our own meals, we know exactly what is in them. We don’t have to worry about things. Plus, cooking dishes at home is way cheaper than fast food!
