  1. So, so delicious. I followed some of the suggestions - 425 oven instead of 450 & parchment over the foil. I also just sprinkled the potatoes with olive oil, then salt, pepper & sugar, then made sure they were coated using a small plastic bag over my hand. Baked for 30 min., turned them and - Read more ...
  2. Delish! I actually made these with sweet potatos for extra health and they were great! I added way more cayenne though because you could barely taste the amount the recipe called for. They weren't too spicy even with more cayenne. Updated to add: I tried these last night with white potatos, and they were not - Read more ...
  3. My quest for oven fries has ended with this recipe! The "ah-ha" came to me when I read about the sugar making them crisp. That is the key! These came out incredibly crispy and tasty! I *did* make a couple of changes (after making them the way the recipe was posted once). I actually omitted - Read more ...
  4. These are great! It took my fries a bit longer than 30 minutes to crisp up, but the flavour was excellent! I've been looking for a good oven fries recipe for quite some time, and this is it! We had them with turkey burgers! No guilt at all on our burger-and-fries night! Just re-made this - Read more ...
  5. This one has become my family's favourite. I'm finally reviewing it after making it about two dozen times! We sub paprika for red pepper flakes works out just as good. These are flavourful and delicious. I bake them on an airbake style pan which makes them easier to flip and no charring. Great with some - Read more ...
  6. I used 1 TBLS of veg oil and added a dash of garlic/onion powders. GREAT FRIES! Had I known they were going to be this sucessful, I would have doubled the batch. Plus, thanks to the foil, easy clean-up! Will make these many times in the future. Thanks so much for the recipe Barbara!
  7. Yummy! These turned out really good. I added some garlic powder onion powder and black pepper to the potatoes and sprinkled some parmesan cheese on them when they came out of the oven. I used a bit more oil than called for because I wanted to make sure the wedges were well coated. Great with - Read more ...
  8. These were pretty good. After seeing other reviews mentioning burning, I set my oven at 425 instead of 450. Used olive oil instead of veg. oil and added a bit more cayenne & some garlic salt. Pretty tasty. Thanks for the recipe!
  9. Mine began to burn on the bottoms before I had a chance to flip them at the half way point. Next time I will probably lower the oven temp or turn them earlier otherwise they were really good tasting and easy to make. My 3 year old loved did her dad.
  10. The easiest and best we've ever had. Tasted like steak fries from a restaurant. I did score the potatoes with a fork after cutting them, it makes the spice stick better, and give it the restaurant appearance.
