Method

  1. Heat oven to its highest setting, ideally 250C/fan 230C/gas 9. Cut each potato into 1cm-wide slices, then into 1cm-thick sticks. Blanch in a large pan of boiling water for 3 mins, then drain well.
  2. Shake the potatoes out onto a roasting pan, drizzle with oil, ensuring each chip is evenly coated, then season well. Bake for about 15-20 mins, turning the potatoes at least twice, until golden brown and crisp.

Very good chips, used King Edwards potatoes and olive oil instead. It took much more than 20mn to cook though, more like 35min.

Decided to use this recipe with my steak. Wonderful!! Although it did take around 30mins for them to cook. 100 times better than oven chips. I used garlic oil as i didn't have any groundnut oil and they tasted superb!!

NB: Any floury variety of potatoes will work well, but "all purpose" or "boiling" (waxy potatoes) will give less good results. The parboiling is vital as it changes the makeup of the starch making the inside floury and soft, letting you concentrate on getting the outside crisp :)

BINGO! Great taste and really easy to make. Used olive instead too and worked a treat!

Perfect chips! I used vegetable oil, added a sprinkling of paprika as well and served them with sour cream and burgers - amazing. My boyfriend couldn't believe i hadn't bought them.

Hahaha - some of the posts on this website do make me laugh - I honestly believe people just like to post to pretend they are a 'foody'

In particular:
"Best chips I have ever tasted ... Ramsey is a legend"

Er... why?
For simply putting his name on the same basic recipe for chips that EVERYONE else uses with nothing added or taken away?

Its not a bad recipe, please dont misinterpret, but it is simply the way you cook chips - it is not unique or creative in any way.

This is a great recipe for oven chips. I find they can be a bit soggy but these were crispy and very tasty. Will be making these again

These chips were a doddle to make and tasted delicious!

Used a small amount of olive oil and mixed in a bowl with salt to make sure all the chips were covered and cooked for 25 minutes - fantastic results.

Great recipe and everyone loved them - needed cooking for longer than 20 mins though - more like 35-40. Well worth waiting for and won't be long before we try the spice ideas that have been suggested - cajun sounds good!

I make these a lot. Instead of the groundnut oil, try olive oil instead and add some chopped fresh rosemary. Mmmm...good!

I personally think that describing these chips as "healthy" is VERY NAUGHTY, given that there is not a specific volume given for the groundnut oil, and one person's idea of a drizzle is very different from another's! ....No wonder they haven't given nutritional information about this recipe! Fail!
