  5. Place on a paper towel-lined plate and set aside to cool to room temperature.
  6. Now turn up heat on fat to 360.


  1. In small bowl, add a cup Greek yogurt, lemon zest and juice, roasted garlic cloves and stir to combine. Season with salt and black pepper and stir.
  2. Once oil is heated, mix in the fries and cook for another two minutes. After one minute, add the rosemary and sliced garlic to the fries. Cook until everything is golden brown.
  3. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.
  4. Plate a few spoonfuls of the Greek yogurt on a the plate. Put the fries onto the plate in a big mound and season with sea salt.
