  • 4 russet potatoes, cut into ¼-inch-thick matchsticks
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3-4 sprigs fresh rosemary (or 1 tablespoon dried rosemary)
  • 12 fresh sage leaves (or 2 teaspoons dried sage)
  • 4-6 cloves garlic, skin on and smashed
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • flaky sea salt


  • 1, Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
    2. Place the potatoes on a large baking sheet and toss with olive oil, rosemary, sage, the entire smashed garlic cloves, the paprika, and a large pinch of salt. Spread the fries in an even layer. Do not overcrowd the pan, if needed, divide the fries between 2 baking sheets. Transfer to the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, then flip and bake for 15 minutes more.
    3. Add the butter and parmesan, toss, and return to the oven for another 5 minutes. You want the potatoes to be tender, yet crispy. 
    4. Serve while hot, sprinkled flaky sea salt.


Tip: reserve the leftover whole roasted garlic cloves for another use, or smash and mix up a quick pesto or dressing.
