    Potato

    Potato

    po-tate-oh

    The world's favourite root vegetable, the potato comes in innumerable varieties. A member of…

  • groundnut oil, for drizzling
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

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.

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!

My mum wasn't impressed. Said I didn't make anywhere near enough! ;) I find rooster potatoes by far the best for these wedges. When blanching I add powdered onion, makes them taste even better. Also once drizzled try adding 'season-all' which has garlic, onion, chilli and other flavours, absolutely delicious! Great with garlic mayo BTW. ;)

Great recipe! Perfectly cooked inside and out. A brilliant and easy alternative to frozen chips. I put them on the top shelf to make sure they came out crispy...
