These were OK. I used two pounds of potatoes and am glad I only measured out less then half of the flour and milk. At that there was still leftovers to toss. The wedges need to be thin wedges we found or the first cook time a little longer maybe 3 minutes . We found they browned wonderfully but could of been cooked inside just a bit more. I took half the flour and added just the S & P we found these ones a bit plain and in the second bowl of flour added a Chipotle Chili powder. Nicer flavour. I might try these again to the first cook and dip stage and freeze them. Made to Celebrate French Fry Day July 12 in the Everyday is a Holiday tag ( an Andi special tag)

I can't believe I'm only the 2nd one to review these. They are great!! My son helped me with dipping them after we cooled them off. I made up a good size batch, and they were all devoured. I used seasoned salt and pepper and then sprinkled some more seasoned salt on top. Thanks, Marsha D!

WOW - really good. They browned up beautifully on the second fry. I used garlic salt and pepper instead of just plain salt. No need to buy french fries, these are much tastier and just as easy. Thanks!
