You really can use any kind of brand or style of frozen fries that you’d like.

Sweet potato fries would even work.

I personally think this recipe works best on standard French fries or shoe string fries but that’s just me.

Pick whatever brand and style is your favorite.

What kind of Parmesan cheese should I use?

I used the powdered Parmesan cheese for these fries. That’s what I had on hand so that’s what I used.

Fresh Parmesan cheese would absolutely be great to use. Better even!

If you have the stuff in a can at home I’d suggest just using that. The fries are still really delicious that way.

No need to take a special trip to the grocery store.

Bud if you happen to have some fresh Parmesan cheese or want to go buy some for this recipe, that’s great.

Just uses as much as the recipe calls for the other stuff.

How should I cook the fries?

So if you check on the package of frozen fries that you purchased you’ll see a couple different cooking suggestions.
