This super simple recipe for Smoked Garlic Parmesan French Fries comes together in minutes! Using only a few simple ingredients and packed with bold flavor. It is the perfect appetizer or snack recipe.
There are a few things we absolutely love in this household. One of those things are french fries and tater tots. I was over the moon excited to find out that our local Kroger stores are now carrying one of our favorite brands, Grown in Idaho!
Of course, I hurried over and quickly picked up a bag, ok four bags, and excitedly started to plan a few fun summer snack ideas. The first?
Smoked Parmesan Garlic Fries
Grown in Idaho is the gold standard in potatoes. My personal favorite has to be the super crispy crinkle cut fries, but the good news is this recipe tastes great with all of their different varieties. They are 100% grown in Idaho (our Utah neighbor) and ALWAYS produce a super crispy outside but tender and fluffy inside. You can’t beat that real Idaho potato taste.
You can quickly find all of their potatoes in the freezer section of your local Kroger stores.
Ingredients for easy garlic Parmesan french fries:
- 1 bag of Grown in Idaho french fries
- olive oil
- garlic cloves, minced
- grated Parmesan cheese
We have made this with both grated and shredded parmesan. The grated gives it an extra salty and cheese flavor that was voted our favorite, but you are welcome to substitute with grated or regular cheddar!
How to make garlic Parmesan french fries on your smoker:
The secret here is in the pan. You want to use cast iron to help get a nice crisp exterior on your fries. Lightly coat your cast iron with oil and set aside while you’re prepping the fries.
- Preheat your smoker to high heat, around 400 degrees.
- Combine your Grown in Idaho french fries, oil, garlic, salt, and parmesan in a large bowl or zip top bag.
- Shake or stir to combine, making sure each fry is lightly coated.
- Pour the fries into your skillet. Place directly onto the smoker rack.
- Bake or cook 20-35 minutes, stirring once halfway through.
- Once your potatoes are crisp, remove from your smoker and enjoy!
