Have you ever tried adding lots of fresh rosemary to your fries? Some fancy restaurants do this, and it is incredibly delicious! Try out this recipe to make your fries a little more gourmet—with the added benefits of essential oils!
Bake the potato fries for 30–35 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Meanwhile, add the rosemary essential oil and garlic to the remaining olive oil in the large bowl. Stir to combine, and set aside to allow the rosemary oil to infuse the olive oil.
Once the potatoes have finished cooking and are just starting to crisp up, remove them from the oven and put them back in the large bowl. Carefully stir to coat the potatoes with the flavored olive oil; then place them back on the baking sheet, and spread them in a single layer.
Sprinkle the parmesan cheese over the fries, and place them back in the oven for another 10 minutes or until crispy/browned to your preference.
Serve immediately. These taste fantastic with the Creamy Basil Dip (recipe below).
