    Well ive just eaten them and they were worth the wait! i sprinkled a little garlic salt on them before they went in the oven and wow what a difference.
    Just the long wait grr
    So is there a quicker way to cook these blighters......i did par-boil them first

    Hi Ruthy,
    I agree the SW chips are lovely. One of my sons now asks me to make them.
    I parboli tham and spray baking sheet with Frylight - usually they take about 30 mins on 200 degrees electric or maybe a bit higher?
    I love them with a burger I have made from the SW mags or with eggs and mushy peas or an omelette.

    I love them too! I sometimes use a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (HexB) with the frylight. They're a lot crispier!

    I either par boil them and then spray them in fry light and stick them in the top of the oven on the highest temp for 25-35 mins. Or if you want them quicker stick them in the microwave for 10 mins instead of par boiling then spray them with fry light and then stick them in the oven top temp for around 20 mins.

    I got fed up with waiting for so long, in the end i chipped my potatoes, and then put them in the microwave for 10 minutes before putting them in the oven for 20 minutes on 200 Degrees C.
    Much quicker!!

    Mmmmmm syn free chips, I'll be making them tomorrow now, I've got a bit of a craving! I love the idea of garlic salt too- I assume it's found with the normal salt in the supermarket?

    I found the garlic salt by the herbs in tesco. Also another fab way of par boiling the chips before is to add a stock cube to the water when they are boiling i totally forgot i used to do that(either veg,beef,chicken).....and the stock cube doesnt count as a syn because you do not actually consume it all .....at the most it would be 1/2 a syn! it makes it very tasty

    Hi
    Frylight is an oil spray - found in supermarkets (however my local Asda hasn't had it in for ages - got it at Tesco) with sunflower oils etc.
    Hardly any calories and very healthy. I think there is about 3 or 4 diferent ones including olive oil and a salad type dressing.
    Spray on the chips, 'fry' your eggs in it etc.

    I did these last night and apart from some getting too overcooked and too crispy - they were lovely - I think using the different seasonings is a great idea

    Hi, I was just wondering how long to par boil/microwave the chips beforehand? I shoved them straight in the oven last time and they were not nice!

    The end result should still be the same whether you par boil or not. It just means that they take longer to cook in the oven if you don't boil them first.
    I usually par boil as don't want to wait too long for them!
    Just boil them until they are soft, but not too soft that they break and crumble...then its just a case of browning them in the oven so whack them in a very hot oven and just check them til they are to your liking.

    ooh I will try the stock cube. I made chips yesterday and they were fab, turned the oven up to 180 (fan assisted) and parboiled the tats and cooked them in frylight, when I can spare the HE B, I use olive oil. and they turn out delish.
