I served these potatoes with the chicken fried chicken from this site, and they were delicious! I'm not a big fan of anything lemon, but my mom and grandma were visiting, so I decided to make these because it seemed like something they would like. I ended up loving them, too! I used Morton's Nature Seasoning, and I only had bottled lemon juice, so that's what I used. I was surprised that the lemon really added such a good flavor. These will be a regular at my house!

I thought these were just OK for me. Too much lemon flavor. My daughter said "your fries are not so good mommy" So I doubt we'll have these again. Read More

I thought this turned out very well. I mixed up everything "shake n bake" style in a large ziploc bag and it turned out nicely. I added some finely chopped garlic and sprinkled parsley on the potatoes before baking. Read More

I tried these potatoes and they turned out pretty good but I would recommend using a nonstick cookie tray sprayed with pam instead of foil(I used one of each and the nonstick tray browned the potatoes perfectly compared to the other tray with foil) Read More

These were great! I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil and I thinly sliced a small onion and tossed them over the potatoes. I also added some oregano and seasoning salt for a little extra flavor. P.S. Always use FRESH lemon juice. It does make a difference! Read More

Maybe because I used real lemon juice rather than bottled but these didn't have much in the way of flavor. I added a couple of cloves of garlic but that didn't appear to make much of a difference. If I try this again I will have to add some addition spices for flavor. Read More
