These were great! So simple and good. I was a little afraid of putting them on the bottom rack but so glad that I tried it. They came out perfect - crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Thanks Amber Dawn for a nice keeper. Made for Cookbook Tag.

Great recipe, I will make these whenever I want fries. I've had problems inthe past with oven fries because to me they were more like a wedge of baked potato. I think your method of baking these are perfect, as was the amount of seasoning. I used another reviewer's suggestion and did spray the aluminum foil with cooking spray and the fries did not stick.

Simple! Delicious! Healthy! What more could you ask for? I did add a bit more salt but otherwise followed the recipe as written. Don't forget to spray your cookie sheet with nonstick spray otherwise they'll stick like glue!

Can't sat that I used Idaho spuds but I did use good Canadian russets and got really grand "fries". Sometimes you really want the good basic article and that's what you get here, a delicious, seasoned, recipe that lets you enjoy the taste of the potato. The perfect side for tonight's burgers. :D

I live in Idaho so I figured I BETTER get this recipe right ha ha! And I think I did! They are simply awesome! I loved not having to peel the potatoes. I only used one potato, cut it into 8 equal parts (almost equal!) & followed the recipe pretty closely. Really crispy outside like I love. Hubby even compared them to the fries at "Big Juds"--an Idaho CLASSIC restaurant! It's a keeper & thank you for sharing!!!!

This method is fantastic. I never thought of placing the pan on the bottom rack, guess I was afraid of them burning. the fries were nice and crunchy. I will use this method often. Thanks.

Simple and perfect way to serve potatoes. Went perfectly with hot dogs and cole slaw. Made for the US Forum Alphabet Tag.

Excellent baked fries. I soaked the potatoes in cold water for about 20 minutes and patted them dry before proceeding with the recipe. The soaking prevents sticking (works for roasted wedges and whole potatoes too) and provides a crispy result. I oiled the pan very lightly too to prevent sticking.
