Delicious, crispy and no doubt less fattening than your standard chips. excellent, flavoursome recipe. I found it took about half an hour though to brown the chips properly. I sprinled with paprika.

Turned out good! I used 2 chicken bouillon cubes in boiling water and added the potatoes. I drained than let cool down than rolled in olive oil and added black pepper and placed in greased baking dish. Thanks for sharing this simple, easy way of home fries.

I liked these, parboiling them in stock gave them a nice subtle flavour. Mine took quite a bit longer to start going golden though, I think it was about 20 or even 25 minutes. I served them just sprinkled with some salt. As Bergy said they'd make a great basis for some experimenting with all sorts of flavourings/spices. Thanks for sharing.
