    Muffin Goddess's Note:

    I was looking for something different to serve with cheeseburgers one night, and this is what I found (it's a Tanya Holland recipe from foodtv.com). The spice blend counters the sweetness of the fries rather nicely, I think. Prep time is primarily time needed to heat the oil sufficiently.

      We made both fries and chips with this recipe. Both were great. The spice mix contrasts really nicely with the sweetness of the potatoes. I am going to experiment with some other root vegetables now. Thanks! Made for Spring PAC '09

      Very good. I added a little brown sugar and then tossed with some olive oil and baked them. They weren't crispy, but they were still great!!! Served with a dipping sauce of ranch dressing mixed with BBQ sauce!

      Oh the spice blend for these was wonderful! I skipped on the chili powder this time but found it still to be extra tasty and suitable for everyone in the family. I'll be making these again and again I'm sure but next time will try and bake them off in the oven, just to reduce the fat content a bit .
