Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Pat the potatoes dry and cut them lengthwise into 1/2 inch thick slices.
  3. Turn each slice flat and slice again lengthwise into even 1/2 inch thick fries.
  4. Place the potatoes in a mixing bowl and add the olive oil, seasoning, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  5. Toss well to combine, then transfer the fries to a large baking sheet and arrange them in one even layer so that they are not touching.
  6. Roast, scraping the potatoes from the baking sheet with a metal spatula and turning them over halfway through, until golden brown and crispy, about 30 minutes.
  7. While the potatoes are cooking, combine the cheese, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a small bowl and stir to blend.
  8. When the potatoes are crisp and brown, sprinkle with the paprika-parmesan salt.
  9. Serve hot.
