    For better baked fries, soak raw, cut potatoes in warm water for 10 min. Spread on paper towels and pat dry. Season. Arrange on baking sheet, cover with foil, and bake in 475 preheated oven for 5 min, remove foil and continue to bake 20 min until bottoms are golden brown, rotate pan after 10 min. - 8/25/08

    These were so yummy! I skipped the oil and coated both the tray and the fries with Pam instead. When they were done, I spritzed a few times with butter spray for more flavor. I would definitely make these again. Yum! - 6/29/08

    Really good! Good hint from Lab-Lover - don't make them too thin. Also, I didn't use the oil at all - I sprayed "Pam" on the cookie sheet, and then sprayed over the top of the potatoes once they were laid out on the sheet. They still crisp up, and even less fat! - 6/24/08

    Made these tonight. Pretty good! Made a peppadew sauce with 1c light sour cream, 1/2c chopped peppadew peppers, and 1/2c white wine to dip it in. - 7/13/09

    This is also good when you use sweet potatoes - more vitamins - you don't need to cook as long - we don't use the oil or salt just diff herbs and seasonings depending on how we feel that day. Good to do on the grill wrapped in foil on a hot day so you don't heat up the kitchen too!! - 10/22/08

    I have been making this for years. The only difference is I add 1/4 tsp Paprika to the salt and pepper. This has been a family favorite. - 10/21/08

  • Great tasting! These were a good alternative to french fries. They didn't get very brown or crispy for me, but I assume I didn't cook them right! Will have again. - 9/27/12

  • This was so yummy. I got rid of the salt and thyme and used Mrs. Dash because I'm watching my sodium intake. I also used PAM spray instead of olive oil. - 8/21/12

  • i've been making fries for awhile now, and i've always deep fried them. Baking them was a much better idea. They turned out beautiful and crisp and the flavors were all there. I will make this again. My family enjoyed them so much. I added lots of pepper to give them a kick. - 11/29/11

  • Regarding the issue of cutting the potatoes into even pieces. There is a kitchen utensil that cuts potatoes into fry sized pieces. It looks like a square potato masher. I used to have one, it worked pretty well but the arthritis in my hands made it too difficultt for me o use. - 1/18/11

  • I really liked these! Very filling! Very easy- the hardest part is cutting the potatoes. Lots of flavor. Only problem was mine were kind of soft, would have liked them a little more crisp, but we'll definitely make again! - 8/2/10
