Greek Fries are jazzed-up frozen fries tossed with Greek spices and served topped with feta cheese and along with a feta yogurt sauce! Feta fries are the perfect side dish for Gyros or any sort of Greek food!
After spotting some gyro meat at Costco last week, I had my heart set on gyros for dinner one night. I had flashbacks to an amazing gyro I had years ago, which was served with the BEST fries topped with feta cheese. That was it. I had to make them! That’s how these Greek Fries were born and WOW are they good! These gyro fries are served with a homemade feta yogurt sauce that is the perfect dipping sauce for them.
One tiny confession: these feta fries are not homemade. I actually used frozen French fries – don’t hate me! We actually really like frozen French fries (especially the Alexa brand!) and I’ve failed too many times making them from scratch. So, for these crispy baked French fries, semi-homemade Greek fries, it is!
Ingredients in Greek Fries
Frozen French Fries – I took a shortcut in this recipe and used frozen French fries! I used the thin, shoe-string type French fries as those are my personal preference, but crinkle or potato wedges would also work.
Spice – Dried Oregano, dried parsley, and dried dill all lend to the amazing Greek flavor in these fries. I use dried herbs but fresh herbs would also work well.
Garlic Powder – you could substitute some fresh garlic if you prefer.
Feta Cheese – I find the blocks of salty feta cheese are much better in this feta sauce than the crumbled kind. Just look for the block of feta cheese and then roughly chop it with a knife.
Greek Yogurt – whole milk Greek yogurt will lend for a super creamy Feta Sauce. You can substitute sour cream, if you prefer.
Mayonnaise – a little bit of mayonnaise makes the feta sauce extra creamy.
Milk – any kind of milk helps thin out the feta fries sauce a little bit.
Fresh Parsley – fresh parsley is chopped up and sprinkled on top, adding a ton of flavor to these Greek fries.
Semi-Homemade Greek Feta Fries
Yes, this recipe is semi-homemade, in that it uses frozen French fries. I’ve never been able to make crispy French fries in the oven, and I’m not a big fan of frying things in my house. To make this Greek fries recipe, start by tossing the frozen French fries in a bit of olive oil, oregano, dill, parsley, garlic powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Place the fries in a single layer on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper or in an air fryer basket, and bake or air fry them according to the package directions. The result? Crispy Greek fries full of flavor!
While the Greek fries are cooking, make the feta sauce.
Feta Fry Sauce
Feta Fry Sauce is absolutely necessary for Greek fries! The combination of the Greek spices on the crispy fries with the tangy feta sauce is pure perfection. The feta dipping sauce is a combination of feta cheese, plain Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, milk, fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, fresh parsley, fresh dill, and sea salt.
How to Serve Greek Fries
These gyro fries are the ultimate side dish when I made gyros for dinner. I have seen people put fries IN their gyros, and I think these would be incredible like that, too! You could also serve them as a side dish with some grilled chicken, steak, or fish, alongside Spinach Feta Turkey Burgers, or with a Greek salad. Confession: sometimes I like to just eat feta fries as my main dish, so feel free to do that too!

Super yummy! The feta sauce is very runny tho. More like a dressing. I recommend 8oz feta per 1/2 cup yogurt, based on other similar recipes. Other than that, it’s a perfect side for Greek tilapia. Along with a red onion, cucumber salad.
