These fries are similar to those you can buy on the street sides out of trailer trucks except these are baked instead of deep fried.

These came out fantastic! I SOOO didn't want to fry potatoes tonite and I only had 30 minutes until I wanted to be serving my bbq pork sammies and cole slaw, but needed something else for a side dish. I used my apple corer to make some quick potato wedges, covered 'em in water and threw 'em in the microwave for 5 min. I sprayed the baking sheet with oil, dried the taters with a paper towel and sprayed again with oil after putting them on the sheet, then sprinkled on the season salt. 25 min at 400 deg made these nice and crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. I WILL NEVER FRY POTATOES AGAIN!! Thanks so much :-) Read More

45 minutes is way too long. The fries were black and too hard to eat when I took them out. Read More

I use Johnny's Seasoning Salt in this recipe and add a little fresh ground pepper. This is one of our favorite ways (and my go-to recipe) for jo-jo potatoes. There's never any leftovers. Read More

so easy and tasty -- I tried it with the small golden potatoes -- yummy 2nd review -- tonight I used russet potatoes and soaked the peeled and sliced potatoes in four cups of water and 3/4 cup sugar for about 15-20 minutes. Dried them on a dish towel and then followed the rest of this recipe. Crispier. Very good. Read More

These are pretty good despite the fact that I accidentally went overboard with the salt..woops! The kids went crazy for these 'hot chippies' as we call them here. They seemed to take forever to brown so don't make them if you're in a hurry. I left the skins on too which worked rather well. Read More

I made this recipe last night my only suggestion is turn the fries once or twice during baking. Yum! Read More

Hmm...Well I've never had fries from a truck on the street but these weren't half bad. My husband said they were surprisingly good...and he is a potato connisseur. I would probably make them again...but personally I prefer the bagged fries from the frozen foods department at the grocery store. Read More

Simple way to make homemade French fries without frying them. I very seldom make fries so my family was thrilled to see these on the dinner table. I cut them thin so they would be crispy (the way my family enjoys them) and used less oil. I put the fries on the cookie sheet and lightly drizzled with oil until they were coated and then added the seasoned salt. I did flip 2 times while baking to achieve the color and crispiness I wanted. Family loved them and that is all that mattered. The fries were served with BAR CHICKS Blackened Chicken Sliders another AR recipe. I would make fries with this recipe again. Read More
