Are Oven Baked Fries Crispy?

There’s no way to compare thick-cut oven-baked fries to deep-fried fries because baked fries do not get as crisp as deep-fried fries do.

It just happens to be a natural thing to do when you bake something instead of deep frying it.

Although they’ll get crispy on the edges, coating them in grated Parmesan will give the potato a lot of texture so that you won’t miss the ultra-crispy deep-fried taste at all.

Seasoning Ideas for Oven Fries

In my opinion, what I love about these baked fries is that you can change the seasoning to be almost any flavor you like when you make them.

You can take into account the added texture of the Parmesan when deciding whether to use Parmesan in the seasoning mix. Some other ideas for seasoning include:
