What makes them seem Italian is all the seasoning. They're all seasoned up with Italian herbs , fried to perfection with spices and Italian cheeses. These Italian Fries are so delicious and a perfect fix to any french fry lover.
Italian style french fried potatoes gone wild!
I love them with any dinner we serve but we can eat them as just a snack for lunch, in between meals and of course with a tasty Italian burger!
French Fries are a classic universal favorite!
French fries are a world famous staple in everyone's home. They vary from thin, thick, wedges, curled, ridged and deep fried into chips! Potatoes are the perfect accompaniment to any meal. These Italian French Fries are fun to make and fun to eat! If you have a special tool to make them ridged or fancy cuts that's even a bigger bonus.
I see in many restaurants they come in all different shapes now. Potatoes are so versatile when it comes to shapes. My family loves the shoe string style or medium cut stick style.
We love them loaded also with melted mozzarella and a little marinara on them and if you want to make a whole meal out of them add some cooked loose sausage and peppers on top first!
I really am a potato lover of all of them any in any shape or size but seasoned like this recipe,
Unique in flavor and addictive
These Italian French Fries are quite different in flavor since they have so many herbs and spices on them. I really love the fresh herbs they bring out the flavors in the Italian fried potatoes and virtually need nothing else not even a condiment. I do add them on the sides.
Believe it or not my favorite to dip these in is vinegar. My son loves marinara sauce. My husband ketchup and many like to dip in ranch or blue cheese dressing.
Any way you decide to dress these up they are outstanding with any meal.
I love using my new air fryer. I lightly coat my raw potatoes with and oi spray and then air fry them until golden and crispy.
They come out perfect.
If you love them deep fried in oil make them on top of the stove, electric deep fryer if you have one.
One other way I have made them is thickly cut Italian Steak fries, brushed with oil and bake them. Season them when they come out the same way.
Basically they are delicious however thickness you cook them.
The seasoning is what makes them super special.
I love crispy almost over done golden brown Italian fries. I even love to cut them thinner like the fast food place to get them like as crisp as potato chips.
Either way you make them homemade from raw potato or frozen, these fries everyone will love them.
They are a great addition to any meal and of course they especially compliment my Italian style hamburgers!
I even make these as a snack sometimes. My grandson is a very picky eater but he loves french fries so I make these often without seasoning too heavy. Just cheese and parsley with salt, pepper.
He loves his thin cut fries.
Also, most of us love sprinkling some red pepper flakes on ours, then dipping them in marinara sauce.
The nice part about making seasoned fries and Italian style is, how bold the flavors could be made to your liking. There are no rules here. Sprinkle away!
You add as much or less of what you like or any of the ingredients listed. I say start out with a little instead of a lot then you can improvise accordingly. It's hard to remove over seasoning.
We like more cheese than garlic so I use around 1/4 cup of grated cheese on mine and 1/2 teaspoon of garlic. We also like oregano better than basil, so I use less basil.
Once you have slightly cooled them, then I add the spices while warm. Usually the fries are so hot I can't handle them right away so like them cool slightly or pour them straight into a paper bag and shake the seasoning is the easiest way..
Everyone likes to dip them in something different here. One likes marinara, another hot sauce, my son likes mayo then the husband likes blue cheese. Whatever you like, dip away! They are great by themselves!
These go perfectly with my Best Italian Juicy Hamburger recipe!
