I've made this twice now. I double the spice ingredients to give more "presence" and use Yukon Gold potatoes, a family favorite. The guys in my family really get into these!

We like ours a little more crispy, so we bake them approximately 10 minutes longer than the recipe says.

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).

When i made this recipe I don't use oil instead i spray the potatoes with pam then sprinkle the seasons on and toss in a big bowl we all love them.

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.
