Crisp and delicious. Vary the flavours by adding chili powder or other spices to the coating mixture. Make up a second batch and freeze. To use, just heat them up in the oven on a cookie sheet at 425 F for about 15 minutes.
- 4 baking potatoes
- 1⁄4 cup cornstarch
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary (or a combination, or 1 tsp dried) or 2 tablespoons fresh thyme (or a combination, or 1 tsp dried)
- 1 garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- Peel potatoes and cut into sticks as for French fries.
- In a large bowl, combine cornstarch, water, rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper. Stir until smooth.
- Add potatoes to cornstarch mixture and toss well.
- Arrange potatoes in single layer (potatoes should not touch) on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper and brush with oil.

Wow! We loved these. DH even rated them top of the list for all the un-fried fries. This is easy to prepare. I used a mixture of herbs on mine. I also had to let them cook for an additional 10 minutes and 15 would have been even better. Great recipe and thanks for posting. :)
For this first time, I made this exactly as directed, and they were delicious. I had to give them extra cooking time tho, about another ten minutes, and ideally I'd leave them Another ten minutes, about twenty extra minutes, to be really crisp. This could be due to my oven, or perhaps just different altitude, whatever, I often find I need to give extra cooking time to recipes I pick up on Zaar. They were really good, tho, the family loved them, and very easy to prepare, I'll be making them again, and experimenting with different seasonings! I served them with Bacon and Egg Rolls, for a casual but delicious supper, after a long day out!
