Zippy Oven French Fries

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by GeeWhiz

Crispy and spicy potatoes coated in French fried onions and parmesan cheese. Easy, fast and great flavor! One pound equals about 3 medium potatoes. Potatoes can be stored for several weeks at temperatures of 45F to 50F in a cool, dry, dark place. Light causes them to turn green!

These fries where great. The onions didn't stick very well but it still turned out great and i will make again. If your like me and have to much to eat in one sitting i suggest putting what you was in the oven and freezing the rest. i did this and the frozen tasted just as good.
