My quest for oven fries has ended with this recipe! The "ah-ha" came to me when I read about the sugar making them crisp. That is the key! These came out incredibly crispy and tasty! I *did* make a couple of changes (after making them the way the recipe was posted once). I actually omitted the cayenne. We love spicy..but not necessarily in fries. I used 1-1/2 tsps. of salt (that did the trick as far as taste goes) and I used olive oil instead of veggie oil. These are the best oven fries I've ever made!

Mine began to burn on the bottoms before I had a chance to flip them at the half way point. Next time I will probably lower the oven temp or turn them earlier, otherwise they were really good tasting and easy to make. My 3 year old loved them...so did her dad.

These were pretty good. After seeing other reviews mentioning burning, I set my oven at 425 instead of 450. Used olive oil instead of veg. oil and added a bit more cayenne & some garlic salt. Pretty tasty. Thanks for the recipe!

Delish! I actually made these with sweet potatos for extra health and they were great! I added way more cayenne though because you could barely taste the amount the recipe called for. They weren't too spicy even with more cayenne. Updated to add: I tried these last night with white potatos, and they were not good at all! Well, not good compared to the sweet potato ones I made before. They were boring, whereas the cayenne combined with the sweetness of the sweet potato made these fries fantastic! TRY THEM WITH SWEET POTATOS, YOU'LL LOVE THEM!

I used 1 TBLS of veg oil and added a dash of garlic/onion powders. GREAT FRIES! Had I known they were going to be this sucessful, I would have doubled the batch. Plus, thanks to the foil, easy clean-up! Will make these many times in the future. Thanks so much for the recipe Barbara!

Yummy! These turned out really good. I added some garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper to the potatoes and sprinkled some parmesan cheese on them when they came out of the oven. I used a bit more oil than called for because I wanted to make sure the wedges were well coated. Great with ketchup. Thanks for sharing.

The easiest and best we've ever had. Tasted like steak fries from a restaurant. I did score the potatoes with a fork after cutting them, it makes the spice stick better, and give it the restaurant appearance.

These are great! It took my fries a bit longer than 30 minutes to crisp up, but the flavour was excellent! I've been looking for a good oven fries recipe for quite some time, and this is it! We had them with turkey burgers! No guilt at all on our burger-and-fries night! Just re-made this recipe tonight...I ran out of cayenne, so I mixed some thai chili sauce into the oil and sugar. So spicy and delicious! I just wanted to add to my previous review
