I often cook potatos this way but instead of olive oil I use Kraft Italian salad dressing a little garlic powder or garlic salt sprinkled over the potatos and sometimes some fresh rosemary needles sprinkled all over. Read More

DH: "French Fries and health DON'T go hand & hand...Period." Not a hit here - at all. Oily and bland. Read More

I felt quite virtuous eating these they must be better for you than ordinary fries. Served with herbed chicken nuggets. Great meal. Cooked for slightly less time than stated but my oven does cook hot. I also omitted the salt but might use a bit of sea salt next time. Yes there will be a next time. Thanks Read More

I love oven fries. I usually boil rather than microwave tho; our microwave is awful. And I love to use ranch dip mix or onion/garlic flavors. Yum! Update 7/14/14: Made these again. Have a nicer microwave now and a convection oven...convection is the way to go for crunchy awesome fries! The paprika salt combo is great. I baked for about 20 minutes then flipped re-salted and baked for another 10 minutes. So delicious. Read More

I thought this was super easy and quite good!! You can use the base and add whatever seasonings you like. I peeled the potatoes before microwaving them and then followed the recipe exactly. My potatoes did not end up soggy at all in fact mine were really crunchy on the outside. I was quite amazed at that! Good stuff. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

YUM! I mixed the paprika with salt and shook it onto the fries. I flipped these after 20 minutes to make sure they browned evenly. These were delicious and so easy to make. Thanks for a keeper! Read More

Goes great with most dishes. I added 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder. I ate mine with breakfast eggs. I will be making them again with burgers or steak. I will never buy them frozen premade again. I wish I had this recipe when I was pregnant. Thanks for the formula. Read More
