These have a delightful flavor and are a satisfying alternative to fries that are fried. Note that you'll need to soak and scrub the pan but it's well worth the effort. Use a non-stick pan if you have one available.

These were really good, but a bit soft, would have been since if the outside of the potato was crisped up. I will make this again, but try uncovering it for the last 5 minutes or so. Thanks!

These were excellent!! I thought it was a little weird to use milk in fries but it worked. I skipped the parsley but followed everything else as directed. Thanks for posting!

Very tasty and easy. When I'm in a hurry, I cook the potatoes in the microwave for a couple minutes before slicing...saves a little time in the oven.
