2large russet potatoes(or a bag of frozen french fries in a pinch)
1/2teaspoonsea saltplus more to taste
Black pepperto taste
1/4cupgrated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray lightly with baking spray. Set aside.
Cut potatoes into ¼ – ½ inch thick restaurant style fries. Do not remove the skin. Place fries in a large bowl full of hot tap water and allow to soak for 10 minutes.
Drain the fries, then transfer them to a tea towel or paper towels and pat dry completely.
In a large dry bowl, combine fries, 2 teaspoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon truffle oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste. Toss until evenly coated.
Spread fries into an even layer on prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden and crispy, flipping every 10 minutes. In the final 10 minutes, sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese.
With 5 minutes left to cook, heat remaining olive oil and truffle oil in a small skillet over low heat. Add garlic and cook 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly, until fragrant. Drizzle over hot fries and toss.
Garnish with additional Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste, and parsley.
