has anyone ever made these as directed and have them turn out as in the photos?

They take hours to brown when I make them. Top tips anyone?

Use a ridged tray or pizza tray, respray with fry lite half way through cooking.

I had some with my tea, they were very pale but perfectly edible. I agree that I would a bit more colour & crispness, but I was hungry and couldn't wait another 10 minutes!

I do suspect the ones in the mags are fried!

We just had some. They were pale and floppy, bit still quite yummy

I've just had some , they were yummy, brown and crispy.
I don't boil mine first like it says to.

Agreed I don't boil mine either and just spray with fry light before and half way through.

Mmmm I do love mine nuked

I microwave for five mins, and I throw paprika on them!

So, how long in the oven?

I've been known to put mine in the frying pan with FryLight, if there taking to long to brown and crisp.

I do mine in the wok - I cook everything that I frylite this way. also like to have little cubed potatos done in the oven with garlic and rosemary. way better than chips!

I cook mine about 30 to 40 mins and I've started using the BBQ fry light on them they go perfect! Yum

I boil them first, then whack the oven up full blast to get them brown and crispy.

I turn the oven to as high as it will go for the last 10 minutes to get them to brown.

I put mine in the microwave with beef stock, drain it and then stick them in the oven as usual. Tastes a bit like chippy chips. Yum.

I par-boil them for 5 mins first. If I don't, I find that the outsides burn before the middles are cooked. I cook for 25 mins on 170.
