Rosemary Fries

  • 3 medium potatoes cut into matchsticks
  • 1/2 tsp coarse salt
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp chili flakes

Garlic Cream Cheese Dip

  • 60 gr cream cheese
  • splash milk
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 30 gr cheese of choice e.g. cheddar, gouda, Jarlsberg
  • ketchup for serving (optional)
  • mayonnaise for serving (optional)


  • Pre-heat the oven to 225C (435F). 
  • Peel your potatoes and chop them as equal as possible, to ensure even baking. Place them in a bowl of cold water and soak for 30 minutes. This will help get rid of the excess starch and will leave your fries even crispier. 
  • In a pestle and mortar, grind coarse salt and dried rosemary together. Take the potato sticks out of the water, rinse them and dry them with a paper towel. The more dry, the more crisp you get! Place dry potato sticks into a bowl and pour in olive oil and a little bit of that rosemary salt (a pinch, depending on your taste). 
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper and lay your potato sticks out on it. Be sure to avoid placing sticks too close together, you want them to have free space all around. Bake for about 30 minutes, but turn them around after 20 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile, make the garlic cream cheese dip. Melt the cream cheese in the microwave for around 30 seconds. Whisk in the garlic, milk, pepper, salt and olive oil until a smooth consistency. When it is smooth, add in the other cheese. Microwave for another 30 seconds and whisk until smooth. Set in the refrigerator until the rosemary fries are ready. 
  • The rosemary fries are done and sprinkle them with more rosemary salt and chili flakes! Serve with ketchup, mayonnaise and garlic cream cheese dip.
