Perfect! I've always hated frying chips...the bubbling hot oil makes me nervous and knowing that it's bad for me detracts from the pleasure of eating those golden fingers of potato! I'll never buy oven chips ever again! The young kids loved it too!

Loved these, went brilliantly with steak. Like others have said, I would put the onions in later as they were charred by the time the chips were cooked, but I would definitely make these again!

Amazing home made chips but I tend to leave the onions till last 15 mins otherwise they are black if u put them in too early in that heat!

Everyone at dinner enjoyed these chips. The insides were floury (like roast potatoes) and the thinly sliced red onion flavour permeated the dish. They went down well with my 2 year old nephew too! I would definately use this recipe again as it is quick and easy to make. Just make sure that after 15 minutes you turn the chips or they will stick to any surface.

I don't bother with the garlic and onion; I make garlic mayo for dipping instead. Also, try substituting the oil for duck fat, but keep a cloth/napkin to hand to mop up any excess drool.

Absolutely delicious, but I would add the onion a little later.. maybe after around 10 minutes with the garlic otherwise they taste a little overcooked..

Bit annoyed about the cooking time for the chips.....the onion was charcoal by the time the chips were ready....disappointing Mr Ramsey

I have never tried to make chips before as I generally dislike chips as a rule, however I quite enjoyed these due to the additional flavour from the noon and garlic. I intend to make these again but will use far more onion and will not slice it thinly as most of it burned rather than caramelised. Otherwise a nice and relatively quick meal.
