"The ultimate in home baked French fries! Fresh cut potatoes covered with Parmesan, basil, garlic, and coarse black pepper. These little guys are spectacular! If extra garlic, Parmesan, or pepper kick is desired (I do all 3!), sprinkle a little on the fries right before baking."

Followed the recipe exactly. It came out so spicy and salty that we couldn't even eat it. I will try again but will cut the salt and pepper to half or less.
