As a recent convert to oven chips, can someone recommend which are the tastiest? I'm not too bothered about fat/salt but want to know what's YUMMY.

MCain Home Fries

I bet the seasoned ones are Southern fries they are yummy but too salty for the kids

IM(very wide!)E, McCains are consistently pretty good. Own label ones are sometimes but they vary a lot, and even if they're nice one week they can be crap the next.

Local Sainsbos had some for a few months that were made with olive oil and they were gorgeous - I think they were in a turquoise bag.

macains home fries, definitely

McCain's are the best and the ingredients are potato and sunflower oil (in the normal, straight-cut chips that is)

Tesco's own label wedges are usually good too - yellow bag (but don't buy roasties by mistake as DH did - I think someone had picked up yellow bag of roasties, spotted wedges and dumped roasties there, and of course DH never engages his brain when shopping!)

I think fries have a coating but chips are just potato and oil?

The secret life of chips

Home fries do have a coating - flour and seasoning and stuff? I prefer ordinary chips but the consensus seems to be that Fries are tastier.

Countess Dracula's home made oven chips - haven't bought any since she converted me!

Enid Mon 04-Jul-05 19:34:55

omg now am fantasising about chips and Dijonnaise

jessicaandbumpsmummy Mon 04-Jul-05 19:35:44

am i the only one who DOESNT like mccain home fries?!

Janh Mon 04-Jul-05 19:37:39

No, jm, I don't either.

My MIL still makes her own and they are delish. She is an utterly crap cook in all other departments but does make a mean chip. (My mum did too, in the greasy old chip pan stored full of old lard week in week out, fab!)

I very rarely eat chips and almost never cook them at home, however I did have somewhere some Auntie Bessie's oven chips and they were so good - I think they are coated in batter or something vile sounding but are in fact delicious. Much better than McCain

And potatoes cut up and put in the oven.
