amazing! great tasting and easy to make!!!! much better than store bought french fries!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Recipe was tasty, but the cook time was wayyyyy too long. Just keep an eye out because all but 2 of our fries burned :[ item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made these with blue potatoes I picked up at the farmer's market. Yummy, and I didn't even have to fry! I used a glass pan, which I didn't grease first. I will make sure I don't do that next time, because they stick! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are so good, I make them 3 times a month. Perfect for breakfast, lunch and diner. Being Latin we tend to use french fries a lot and love the fact that I can bake these with a little olive oil and viola. Thanks for sharing item not reviewed by moderator and published
My first time making them was a disaster. I find I will need to cut them thicker, like steak fries, and reduce the time a bit otherwise they burn. First time making things is always a learning experience! I'd rather make them in the oven than anything, as I hate getting burned. item not reviewed by moderator and published
loved these--super easy and all the kids ate a bunch. so much better than frozen! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I think they taste better with coconut oil or grapeseed oil. Canola oil and vegetable oil are made with GMOs and should be avoided. See the Swanson Report 2013. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These fries were a HUGE hit with the family, and while not a diet recipe, they are much healthier than the fried restaurant equivalent. One critique is that some of the fries were crispier than others, which were a little greasy. I would maybe halve the amount of olive oil I used next time. Also the ice bath sounds like a good idea-we'll see how motivated I am next time-haha! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Never made homemade oven fries. I'll never deep fry them again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the first time I have made fries in the oven that were crispy. This is now officially my new method instead of pan frying in oil. Way easier and cleanup is a snap. item not reviewed by moderator and published
DO NOT use coconut oil or grapeseed oil with this recipe. Coconut oil's smoke point is 350 degrees, while grapeseed oil is 420 degrees. Here's a source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smoke_point item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy to say what not to do, how about giving an alternative then? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Try Safflower or Sunflower (the same/similar smoke point as canola oil). Also,Ohio State University did research in 2011 that stated that safflower oil led to health improvements in areas such as blood sugar and cholesterol. Some people don't like to use seed oils, so there's also Olive Oil or Avocado Oil (though check your smoke points, as some versions have a higher one and some, lower). item not reviewed by moderator and published
