    These fries are delicious! I cut the recipe in half for the two of us and made them in my air fryer instead of the oven. The fries cooked up perfectly and tasted great!

    I had used 2 Tbsp. of olive oil and used just one pan to prepare these potatoes. This recipe was delicious! The balance of these potatoes I used in another Taste of Home recipe for Cheesy Potato Bake!

    This is the best oven fries recipe ever. After cutting I soaked the potatoes in ice water about 15 minutes, drained and rinsed them under cold running water and then put them in a salad spinner to dry. I made 1/2 the recipe and baked 25 minutes. They were brown and crispy but not hard. Thanks for sharing!

    I made these for lunch before my husband went to work. Fries had great flavor and were easy to make with pantry staples. This recipe is excellent as written, but my husband and I like a larger cut fry, so next time I will try half-inch rounds or cubes. This is definitely a keeper!!

    I baked them 10 minutes longer the recipe called for, but I have a problematic oven. The important thing is to make sure the slices are all about the same thickness for even cooking.
