Very tasty not dry has a crunch to it. I cut my fries small like a resturant I put olive oil onion power pepper on the fries. They came out tender a tad bit crispy not much favor since I didn't use salt. Pros: very easy and quick to cook. Cons: No much favor. Read More

I didn't have any olive oil so melted butter & a small bit of shortening together with dried chives parsley and old bay seasoning/sea. This was such a great dish-men and teenagers smash hit. When drying wedges well didn't have to cook quite as long-bout 15 min first side and approx 11-12 after turning. Thanks for the great potato dish! Read More

After I cut the potatoes I like to boil them until they're tender pat them dry and then get them ready to go into the oven. It takes a little longer with the added step but I think it makes them a little bit crispier. Read More

I have also been making something similar for years. I use red potatos olive oil garlic and rosemary. I cut my potatos into bit sized chunks and toss the ingredients on them. They are wonderful. I have also used sweetpotatos (I leave the rosemary off). My family loves them I can never make enough. Sharon Read More

I use sea salt ground pepper garlic powder and onion powder on mine. Sometimes I add a pinch of cayenne pepper or use Emeril's Essence Seasoning. This is the only way we make fries any more! Read More
