Fries might be one of the most basic of side dishes, but they’re ANYTHING but boring. When those wedges of potatoes are made just right, they truly deserve to sit alongside the fanciest of main meals— or to be the star all on their own! These fries are not only coated in a tantalizing mixture of seasoning and cheese, they’re baked, instead of deep-fried, for a slightly-healthier, crispy, golden taste. They couldn’t be simpler or tastier; just watch.
