    You need to do the good old SW chips hun!
    Cut your spuds into chips, parboil for about 5-10 mins. Drain and let them dry. Rough them up in the pan and then spread on a baking tray. Spray with frylight, I also add salt and pepper and then cook on high (I use 220 deg) turning often until crispy.
    I love SW chips!

    i think the par boiling bit is essential - have the oven really high i find they crisp up better. If you can afford the syns use a flavoured olive oil - i love chilli oil on mine!!! delish!!! x

    I just cut my potatoe, no peeling into big wedges, put in microwave for 4/5 mins. Dry them, put on a tray, spray fry light on them. Little bit of garlic pepper and pop into a warm oven for around 20 mins. LOVE them, so much better than chippy chips.
