I have to give 5 stars for the outstanding taste but for my first time making I did not get it crispy at all. I will be making again using some of the suggestions from other reviewers and I know I will get these awesome fries crispy. Once these fries have the right crisp they will beat out any fast foods fries I have ever tasted.
We first introduced this recipe in 2002, and it remains a favorite. Tossing crisp oven fries in a small amount of butter and garlic after cooking makes them unbelievably rich, yet still lower in fat than fast food fries.
