Tools Needed For This Recipe

Microwave safe bowl. Need a microwave-safe bowl or cup to know your butter in. Once your butter is melted you will transfer it to a different bowl, so no worries if it’s not very big. 

Mixing bowl. You will want a mixing bowl that has large enough to fit all of your fries into. This is where we will mix the fries and your butter along with your seasonings. 

Oven, Air Fryer, or Skillet. To cook your fries, you can use an oven, air fryer, or fry them on your stove top in oil. Our favorite method is to cook them in the air fryer, however any method will work. 

Spatula. You’ll want to have a spatula on hand to flip them as they bake. 

Ingredients Needed

French Fries. To make a copycat Red Robin garlic Parmesan French fries, we like to use steak fries that are frozen in a bag. This makes the process so much faster and easier. However, you may also use fresh potatoes that have been sliced washed and bake them if desired. 

Butter. For this recipe, we enjoy using salted butter. However, you may use unsalted butter, but you will want to add additional salt to your fries. 

Garlic. Garlic is an essential part of this dish. We like to use pre-minced garlic, however, you can mince your own if you prefer.

Parmesan Cheese. Parmesan cheese is used to flavor your cooked fries. For best results, we recommend using freshly grated Parmesan cheese, however, if you don’t have access to that you may also use other types of Parmesan cheese. 

Garlic Salt. For best results on these fries, we recommend using garlic salt instead of normal kosher salt or sea salt. Our favorite brand to use is a garlic and herb blend, however, whatever type of garlic salt you have access to works deliciously well for this dish. 

How To Make Loaded Garlic Fries

The process of making these copycat Red Robin garlic Parmesan fries is very easy.

First, microwave your butter for approximately 30 seconds in the microwave-safe bowl until it is melted.

Add your minced garlic into the butter and stir and then pour on top of your steak fries.

Then air fry at 400°F for 10 minutes.

After your 10 minutes have passed, stir your fries, and air fry for another 5 to 10 minutes or until nicely warmed. If your fries are not done to your liking, continue baking them for a few more minutes.

Copycat Red Robin Seasoning

Garlic and Herb Oven Fries

Garlic and herb fries may also be prepared in your oven. The process for this is quite similar to the air fryer. You will want to warm your oven to 400°F, then add your fries to a baking sheet. Bake for approximately 10 minutes, before removing from the oven and stirring.
