"Easy to make and the Parmesan cheese really adds to the flavor. I cook mine for about 5 minutes less than the recommended time and they're fantastic."

"Our family loved these fries!! I added a little bit of seasoning salt to the coating ingredients and we dipped them in a dressing/dip combination made by Kraft called pure Kraft Barbeque Ranch.....yum yum!!!"

"A great recipe!! I find that the sauce is what really makes these fries stand-out. You can use other sauces (ranch, honey mustard, etc.) and the mango chutney is not something you normally keep in your pantry, but, it really brings out the flavor of the fries.

Also, for a lighter version, I use egg substitute instead of eggs and light mayo. You'll never taste the difference!"
