Zippy Oven French Fries

"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.

    These were yumm yummm! I only made this for 2 servings. I was just cooking for me, and I want to heat the leftovers up today! :) The only thing I didn't do was us the onions, as I didn't have any. Everything else is the same though. I had these along side a Recipe #150631 on Super Bowl Sunday for dinner! Thanks, and I'll make sure to have the onions next time I make this recipe.

    These were so easy to fix, I loved the crunchy texture and they tasted delicious! I used olive oil and 1 tablespoon of Frank's Hot Sauce, but next time will use the 2 tablespoons. Thank you for sharing your yummy recipe Susan!
