Crispy Baked Parmesan Garlic Fries

|2 to 21/2||russet potatoes|
|2 tablespoons||olive oil|
|1 teaspoon||salt divided|
|1/2 teaspoon||pepper divided|
|2 cloves||garlic crushed|
|3/4 cup||parmesan finely grated|
|1/4 cup||parsley fresh|
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Peel and cut potatoes into matchstick slices, 1/2 - inch wide and 1/4 - inch thick.
Place potato slices in a gallon zip-top bag and toss with olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Layer potato slices in a single layer on each baking sheet.
Bake fries in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, flipping halfway through.
During the last five minutes of baking, heat butter and garlic over medium heat in a small saucepan for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. When garlic starts to brown, remove from heat.
In a large bowl combine fries, garlic butter, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, Parmesan, and parsley. Toss until fries are evenly coated.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
