"These are the best fries!! I omit the cayenne pepper & regular salt. Quick and easy to make. I have tried a couple of other baked fries recipes but none have the wonderful flavor these do. Definitely a favorite at our house."

"I have made this recipe many times with different kinds of potatoes - always a winner. It has a great blend of flavors. I, too, use cooking spray instead of oil. We keep the seasoning mixed and in the pantry in a lidded shaker... spray and sprinkle, turn, spray and sprinkle. More seasoning can be added when turning the potatoes during cooking (if needed)."

"Delicious! I didn't have cayenne pepper so I used chipotle pepper instead. Seemed to work fine. Added a nice smoky flavor."

"These were really good! I added a tbsp of cornstarch (to crisp them up) and used olive oil instead of canola. I also preheated the pan before adding the potatoes. There weren't any left, always a good sign.

Foil line your pan for easy clean up!"

"The flavour was awesome, the only thing I didn't like was how the seasoning clumped together on the potatoes when I shook it in the bag. Next time i'll toss them in the oil and then shake the seasoning over top before baking."

"Always a hit. We like a lot of spice so I actually double all the ingredients except for the potatoes. I have many requests for this recipe."

"These were good, and easy. I made several alternations though. I don't chop the potatoes into wedges, I just slide the potatoes thin, I also cut back on the canole oil to about 4 TBS, anything extra is just a mess. I have used all types of potatoes and can't tell the difference. Lastly, I cooked the potatoes on the grill wrapped in foil. Potatoes were nice and crunchy with a good kick. I used blue cheese dressing for dipping and they were a huge hit!"
