These fries had awesome flavor but I found that tossing them in the butter at the end made them sort of soggy. I still liked them & will be making again.
These were great! I loved the garlic flavor with the fries! Mine got pretty crispy as I cut them very thin. I would maybe reduce the cook time a little or cut the fries a bit thicker next time. I love the fact that I made fries that didn't come out of the freezer section of the grocery store! I was out of fresh parmesan so used the stuff from the "green can", LOL. Still very tasty!
These are wonderful! I made them for an afternoon snack for me and my hubby. We both devoured them in no time. I cut mine pretty thin and they crisped up a lot, but I actually preferred the fries that were a little soft so next time I won't cut them as thin. The flavor is delicious! I reduced the garlic in half because I was afraid I'd have garlic breath for work tomorrow, and it still turned out nice and garlicky. Such a great recipe, thank you Redsie!
