Another fabulous recipe, Sue! These went together so quickly! About 10 minutes to peel and slice the potatoes. I did add extra cayenne and cumin (personal preference). The hint of cinnamon really gave the fries great flavor! I didn't turn them in the oven (too lazy ;)), and it didn't seem to make too much of a difference. Thanks for an easy, delicious side, Sue! I love your recipes!

Delicious and different. We like really spicy food, so next time I will double the cayenne..or maybe even double the amounts of spices to the potatoes. I cut the potato's into french fries and baked as suggested. They smelled heavenly when baking. Thanks for a easy, delicious dish.

These were great! I also doubled the spices/oil mix since when I threw everything together in the plastic bag it hardly seemed like enough to completely coat the potatoes. I also sliced the potatoes into fries, and served them alongside chickpea shwarma sandwiches.
