"French fries baked, then drizzled with butter and seasonings and baked again. Crispy outside and soft inside. Yum!"
Serving Size: 1 (227 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"No one could believe these were baked. Needed to bake them for about 20 minutes after the original 15 minutes, but they turned out nice and crisp outside and tender inside."
"Next time I'll not use as much butter....other than that the flavor was wonderful! Very easy side to make!"
"These ended up a little soggy... but they tasted good all the same!"
"I think the key is go spread these out on a cookie sheet, because the sides on the pan are narrow, and the fries can cook better in the oven. These came out excellent. I did omit the cayenne pepper, as I wasn't sure everyone would like them spicy. I had malt vinegar on mine and they were so yummy I could have eaten the whole batch myself! Made along with your burger recipe. Quite a meal Marie!"
"We love these things especially knowing they are better for you than fried! My boys love french fries and I was looking for something a little different than just plain. I loved the addition of the garlic and onion powder. I went really easy on the cayenne as the boys don't care for hot too much usually. We all agree this is 5 stars all the way!"
"excellant fries the best i ever made without deep frying thanks"
"These turned out great! Lots of flavor. My only problem was I think I cut my potatoes too thin, so they were too crispy. I'll know better next time."
"These were GREAT!! I used Paprika instead of the cayenne pepper, just because that's what I had, but they turned out wonderful! I've already been asked for the recipe by friends."
"Just great..easy and goes great with fish..Thanks"
"These were very yummy and healthy. Thank you for the great recipe!"
"My family LOVED these, as did I. I used 4 medium potatoes and the stated amount of butter but, next time, I'm using less butter because the buttery flavor was pretty intense (but OH so good!). The second bake on the potatoes took about 30-40 minutes to get them browned and crispy. I used a non-stick jellyroll pan and the only seasoning I used was salt, which is just our preference. Thanks Marie for another keeper :)"
"Thank you for your submission! I don't think I got it right just yet but I mainly wanted to get your twice baked method down. I couldn't use the cayanne because I have a toddler. I have been having a problem making great baked fries. However, your recipe got me closer. I also think it is in the way the potatoes are cut in that they need to be cut somewhat similarly in order to have the same cook time. Anyway, I gave a decent rating cause with everything else (minus the onion seasoning too), my husband and toddler liked them. They weren't perfect because I don't think I kept them in the oven long enought the second time perhaps. But you have steered me in the right direction. Thanks! "
