Can you use parchment paper in a toaster oven?

I bought some frozen fries for something I've never made them before. The directions call for placing them on a non-stick baking sheet. One; which I don't have and Two; I want to make them in my TO anyway.
So can I use parchment paper? Something about paper being that close to an electric element just doesn't seem right, regardless if temp is temp.

Wipe the pan with a thin coating of oil and stick the paper to the oil. If it's on the pan rather than sticking up in the air, it won't burn. Parchment paper usually says what the safe temp is on the box. Something like 450F.

If I wipe the pan down with oil would I even need the parchment paper?

We use aluminum foil for lots of toaster oven uses. We try to reuse it if it's lightly soiled.

The aluminuum foil I have isn't considered non-stick.

I've used parchment paper in my TO. It darkens a bit, but so far hasn't burned.

I just Googled it, too. Popular question.
The responses rage from it says not to on the box, to it's OK in a Breville smart oven, which I have. And you do too, right, Dawg?
hmmm... I think I'm going to go for it.

it will be if you lightly oil it,as gg said,then pre heat the baking tray/foil combo BEFORE adding the fries.the heat will seal the surface of the fries,on contact & they won't stick.
i've also used parchment in my work top/toaster oven & even at 230c/450f it didn't burn.
