Greek Fries are made with amazing ingredients like vegan feta, olives and are baked to extra crispy perfection not fried. These homemade fries will become a staple in your family because once you make them even the pickiest eaters will finish any plate in no time.
I have to admit I just love fries. But then again, who does not?
What I love so much about them is how many different variations you can make – there is so much more one can do than only have fries with ketchup as a side to a burger.
What are Greek Fries made of
First of all, there is a difference Greek vs French fries in how they are cut from potatoes. Greek Fries are thick cuts and often (depending on the potatoes) you leave the skin on.
There are also differences in seasonings: like in my recipe these are seasoned with garlic and dried oregano so you can be sure it has all the authentic flavors.
Finally, Greek Fries are often topped with feta cheese and fresh herbs. It is so easy to see why everyone loves a full plate of these.

What you need for this Greek Fries recipe
How to make Greek Fries
Preheat oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Rub your potatoes under water until clean. Leave the skin on, because this is where so much flavor sits, and cut them into wedges.
Transfer the wedges to a large mixing bowl and combine with olive oil, garlic, oregano. Season well with a good amount of salt and pepper. Bake for around 35 minutes until crispy and delicious.
Now the rest is so easy, garnish with feta, black olives and parsley, serve immediately.
Leftovers are not recommend this is seriously best fresh and I serve them always with Tzatziki Sauce.
Tips and tricks
I leave the skin on the potatoes for my Greek Fries so it is important to clean them properly, but you can for sure peel them. I find out it is even more delicious with the skin on.
If you don’t get your fries properly crispy, turn them with a spatula from side to side this really helps.
Not into olives? You can leave them out and add more feta.
