Yum!! Thanks so much - a perfect combo of every ingredient and a nice change of pace to ordinary potatoes.

Very good 'fries', but only giving 4 stars. I followed the recipe as stated and mine were very very brown after 30 minutes (before adding the cheese). Maybe I cut them too thin? I'll certainly try it again with bigger wedges and re-rate the recipe. Very flavorful!
