    Yep, these are just as it says - crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. I served these with your Oven Fried Shrimp for shrimp and chips. :)

    Made these yesterday and they are awesome! They turned out exactly as the recipe promises- CRISPY and NOT Soggy as most other oven fries! They are perfect as the "chips" for an English Style fish & Chips meal. Thank you for posting this Cooks Country Recipe here!

    Made these last night and they were A-One Top Notch. I was quite proud of myself. The instructions are very good and they were golden brown and yummy. A real treat. Full review on IMI. Thanks Pat!

    I was searching for a french fry recipe to go with our hot wings as a side "sofa-gating" dish for the Saints playoff game today. I found this recipe, tried it and the fries were (and still are) a hit! Easy prep, great taste, and lower calorie than fried. Directions are "on-the-mark!" Thank you, Pleclare!

    Made these last night with your tandoori fish (had no sweet potatoes & no unsalted butter, so we made these instead). YUMMY! My oldest daughter said to tell you "thank you"!

    Mmmm, can't wait to try this one! I bet it would be great for sweet potatoes, too.

    Love fries! (or chips as we call them)... Store-bought Oven ones are fine but you can choose the variety of potato to make these, and they will be great (not to mention a bit healthier!)
    Thanks
