What Are Greek Fries?

These are oven-baked french fries tossed with Greek/Mediterranean spices and a bit of oil. They are baked to crispy perfection and then topped with all kinds of fresh Greek or Mediterranean toppings that are so good for you and tasty to boot.

FAQs

What Type Of Potatoes Should I Use?

You can use any type of potato you prefer. Good choices are Russet or Yukon Gold potatoes.

How Thick Should I Cut My Fries?

More important than the thickness is the uniformity. Try to make all your fries the same thickness so that they cook evenly. The thicker they are, the longer they will need to bake. But you can cut them to any thickness you like.

Do I Have To Peel My Potatoes?

You do not have to peel your potatoes. You can peel them if you want to, but it’s not necessary.

Can I Use Fresh Herbs Instead Of Dried Herbs?

Technically, yes. But the flavors won’t be as strong. It’s better to use fresh herbs for a garnish after you have baked the fries.

How Do I Know When My Greek Fries Are Done?

Your fries are done when the fries are cooked to your liking. At the very least, they should be soft and edible. Whether you bake them long enough to make them crispy on the outside is a personal preference.

Crispy Greek Fries And Other Textures

If you want your fries crisy on the outside, make sure you cook them for the full 40 minutes (assuming they are cut to a quarter-inch thickness). Stir them once or twice during baking so that they bake evenly.

If you want less crispy Greek fries, you can bake them for about 30 minutes to start. Add more time as needed until you get the texture you desire.

How To Eat Greek Fries

So the toppings used in this fries recipe tend to easily fall off the fries for obvious reasons, You aren’t melting anything onto these fries to keep the toppings in place. For this reason, I highly recommend eating these with a fork. Mini Chef and I both ate this with forks and it made an excellent vegetarian lunch for us with plenty of fresh veggies.

What To Serve With Greek Fries

  1. Grilled Meat
  2. Greek Salad
  3. Moussaka
  4. Dolmas
  5. Tzatziki Platter
  6. Greek Lemonade
  7. Greek Beer or Wine
  8. Baklava

  2. Mediterranean Veggie Fries – Load the fries with roasted vegetables such as eggplant, bell peppers, and zucchini, along with hummus, olives, cherry tomatoes, and a drizzle of tahini sauce.
  3. Greek Chicken Fries – Top your fries with shredded chicken, along with feta cheese, chopped cucumbers, red onions, and a squeeze of lemon juice.
  4. Seafood Greek Fries – Top the fries with cooked shrimp or calamari, crumbled feta cheese, diced tomatoes, Kalamata olives, and a sprinkle of fresh parsley.
  5. Loaded Vegetarian Greek Fries – Make the recipe as called for but in addition to the toppings listed, add chickpeas, roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts, and a drizzle of balsamic glaze or fresh lemon juice.

What Did I Top My Greek Fries With?

If you want to know exactly what I topped mine with in these photos, here’s the list. Note that I measured with my heart, not a measuring cup.

  • Crumble feta cheese – a sheep/goat mix, which I find (for me), makes the best feta.
  • Kalamata olives – sliced
  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Fresh flatleaf parsley
  • Cucumbers – peeled and chopped small

About The Ingredients

Potatoes – Russet or Yukon Gold, scrubbed and cut into thick fries

Extra virgin olive oil – Use the best quality oil you can afford.

Dried oregano

Dried thyme

Garlic powder

Onion powder

Smoked paprika

How To Make Greek Fries

Preheat The Oven

An oven temperature display panel set to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Preheat your oven to 400°F. Optionally, you can line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy cleanup. But this is not required.

Gather Ingredients

Recipe ingredients gathered in individual bowls.

Gather and measure all your ingredients.

Prepare The Potatoes

Cut fries in a mixing bowl.

Cut the potatoes into fries. Try to make them as uniform in size as possible so they cook evenly. You can use frozen fries as well, which I did here. But check the ingredient list because many have unwanted ingredients in them.

Season The Fries

Spices and oil in a metal mixing bowl, unmixed.
Oil and spices mixed together in a metal mixing bowl.

Mix the oil and spices in a small mixing bowl, pour them over the fries and toss to coat them evenly.

Arrange On Baking Sheet

Seasoned fries spread out over two sheet pans.

Spread the seasoned fries in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, making sure they are not overcrowded. If they are too close together, they may steam instead of getting crispy.

Bake

An oven timer display panel set to 40 minutes.

Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for about 30-40 minutes, or until the fries are golden brown and crispy, flipping them halfway through the cooking time for even browning.

Serve

Once the fries are done, remove them from the oven and sprinkle crumbled feta cheese over the hot fries and garnish with chopped fresh veggies and herbs of your choosing.

Storing Leftover Greek Fries

While these are best eaten fresh from the oven, store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

Freezing

Freezing is not recommended for this recipe.

Reheating

To reheat leftovers, simply place them back on a pan and warm them in the oven at 350F. until warmed through. You may need to refresh your toppings. Note that the fries may be a bit soggier. This is normal.

Recipe Supplies

You’ll need a large baking sheet or two smaller sheet pans.
