    These were very tasty. I baked them for an extra five minutes. They still weren’t crispy but they were a good texture.  -  21 Jan 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is an easy healthy lunch, dinner or snack. I cut them into rounds or chips rather than fries cuz i Have more control over their thickness but thats the only thing i do differently. Really good recipie!!  -  19 Oct 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I would bake these longer the next time. I liked the flavor, but not the texture - too soft. Also, I didn't have paprika so substituted Cayenne powder though not as much. Gave it a kick!  -  09 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
