    Instead of butter and canola oil, I used EVOO. I had some seasoned salt that was sent to me. Don't know the brand name but it is wonderful on potatoes. I did add more than 1/4 tsp as that wasn't going to be enough.

    These were pretty good, but seemed to be extremely under-seasoned. The potato itself was "done" after only 15 minutes of cooking. I tried putting it under the broiler to give it more of the french fry look but it didn't work. Next time I'll try cooking it longer in the oven to see if can get them crispier. Overall a decent base recipe for you to make your own.

    These were very good and easy to make. I did sprinkle extra seasoning salt on the wedges before putting them in a 400 degree oven. I also sprayed my foil lined pan with cooking spray to ensure the wedges would not stick. They were ready in about 25 minutes. I will definitely be making these again.

    Delectable! I used about 1/2 cup Good Seasons Italian Dressing and about 1 tsp. seasoned salt. I simply drizzled the dressing over potato wedges and sprinkled with seasoned salt, then lightly tossed together on a foil-lined 15x10x1" baking pan. I found the taters to be soft inside and crispy brown on the outside. I'd baked my fries longer-around a total of 55 minutes and used 3 baking potatoes! These are even better than regular fries as they're baked! Thank you for sharing this recipe! delowenstein

    Buy yourself a regular french fry pan and they don't need to be turned. They will be done in 20-25 minutes. Always works great.

    I makred I would make this again but it won't be for a while. Mine didn't turn out as successful as the other posters. I did cut mine thinner more like 1/4 then 1/4 again rather than in 1/3 as stated. I didn't want to scrub my cookie sheets so I lined them with foil and thinking they were coated in butter and oil they wouldn't need sprayed. My fires stuck terrible and I wasn't able to turn them after the 12 min mark.Thus they were burnt on the foil side and pretty soft and undone on the top side.

    I've made this recipe so many times for my family. My three year old daughter absolutely LOVES it! I found that if slice them thinly and set the oven on Broil rather than set the temperature at 350 degrees, it cooks in 13 to 15 minutes, and it get that "french fry" look. All in all VERY good!

    I've served this to a VERY picky group of kids I watch after school and they all love them with or without the potato skin on. From now on, I'll leave it on to save nutrients and time and the skin helps each fry to hold together just a little better after it's cooked. Cut them thin like fast food fries and you'll save even more time in cooking. Best recipe for oven fries that I've ever tried.
