A Parmesan cheese and basil coating provides these "homegrown" fries with their pleasant taste. "Seasoned with garlic powder and baked in the oven, they're a zippy alternative to deep-fat fried potatoes," notes Tammy Neubauer of Ida Grove, Iowa.

"Wonderful flavor. The recipe says to use a non-stick cooking spray. That's what I did and had no sticking problems."

"Great fries but fries tend to stick to pan so I'll try the suggestion made to use foil next time."

"These were great! i did need a little more olive oil, and I recommend either oiling the baking sheet or using oiled tin foil -- the fries tended to stick."

"A great recipe. You may need a little more oil depending upon the size of the potatoes. I tossed them in a bowl-no bags. I would use a larger pan for more surface area too. The ones touching the pan were "Yummy Crispy"!"

"Just made these for the first time. Perfect! I wish I had used a bigger pan to increase the surface area but in the end these were great with my family's burger night. Much healthier than other sides."
