A few weeks ago my husband and I celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary by heading to our favorite beach town for an overnighter. We got there in the early afternoon, too early for dinner, but too late for lunch. Turns out it was the perfect time for happy hour.

Or the perfect time for happy hour once we checked in and walked around town for a bit.

Regardless! Happy hour was very happy, sitting on the patio with blue skies and an ocean breeze, and some delectable truffle pommes frites liberally showered with parmesan. I’d never had truffle fries,¬†and these were delicious.

While I knew I probably didn’t have the budget to recreate the truffle part, I’ve been working on the pommes frites part, particularly with the parmesan cheese. What a lovely combination!

I ended up with “coins”, aka potato rounds, because a lot of the potatoes we had on hand were really small. Slicing them in rounds is also quicker than cutting batons.

These Parmesan Potato Coins are my new favorites. We’ve enjoyed them with grilled chicken, grilled fish, and grilled steaks. The herb mix adds a ton of flavor and the shower of parmesan takes it over the top.

You do need to heat your oven, but I’d like to say it’s worth it. Totally worth it.

Serve them as the ultimate appetizer or side dish one day soon!

    We had these for supper tonight with pork chops seasoned with your herb blend and a salad. Everyone LOVED it.

    These sound fabulous!
    Would they work without peeling the potatoes?
