These are great - love the lemon flavor! I checked at 30 minutes, and ended up keeping them in for the full 40, and they came out golden crisp. Thanks for sharing! ZWT9

A nice wedge fry that was quick and easy. The recipe cut down to serve two very nicely. Used small russet and baked the full 40 minutes and they were just right. Thanks for the post.

I really loved the flavor outcome. I used russets and found that they were getting to dark while while still quite hard. I covered the dish with foil, lowered the oven temp to 350 and gave them 30 mins like that (they had already been for about 15). I used very thin slices of the whole lemon in place of the zest and they were yummy.
