  1. Hi, thanks for this wonderful post. I love eating french fries but I do a little less well in the kitchen, lol. I’m still a beginner but I’m very interested in it all. This recipe seems interesting and very tasty to me, so I will definitely have to try it. If I fail, I will share this post with my mom! 🙂

    1. Since you’re new to cooking, this would be a great recipe to try.  Cooking a few minutes more or less won’t affect the outcome and I actually encourage it because everyone likes their fries at a different level of crunch! Just take a peek every now and again.  You’ll do fine (but feel free to share it with your mom anyway).

  2. We meet again… A simple, yet oh so crucial part of any meal. Mcdonalds wouldn’t be Mcdonalds without the fries, and so you gotta bring the HEAT when it comes to making some good fries. Oven baked fries classically have been kinda meh, so I like that you immediately hit the golden brown lifehack button. 

    1. Oven-baked fries have gotten a bad rap but the butter really punches up the crunch factor while onion and garlic powder adds some extra flavor.  Let me know how you think they compare to the “real thing”!
