Method

Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Scrub the baking potatoes, then pat dry. Slice lengthways into three. Drizzle olive oil over a large baking sheet. Place the potatoes on the baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, rub all over, then generously sprinkle with sea salt. Bake for 40-45 mins (longer for extra crispiness) turning halfway, until golden brown and tender.

Really loved these! I dusted mine in cajun spice as well and they turned out delicious, they weren't very crispy though, don't think I left them in long enough but it didn't really matter though as they still tasted good!

so easy, tasty and makes a welcome change from chips or wedges. I served this with James Martin's one pot chicken chasseur with veg for my in-laws and everything went down a treat.

I added some sliced talagio cheese two minutes before they were ready. Delicious or what!

I loved this, it was so easy and absolutely tasty. I also used a spicy humus as a dip for these, and it was great. :)

Very tasty, but dont forget the foil
Can be served with just about any dish to add a lot of flavour

These are so tasty. I used foil to make sure they didn't stick to the tray

So quick and easy to make, they make the perfect side with nearly any meal! However make sure you get a good non stick tray or put foil down first... otherwise they will stick!!

Really easy recipe. I sliced my potatoes into 4 though as they were still nice thick discs of potato! Unless you've got a really good, trusty non-stick baking tray (I haven't and keep meaning to invest in one) it's a good idea to use some bake-o-glide or similar because if the potatoes stick the crispy coating comes off and stays welded to the tray. Turning the potatoes regularly can help. The reason I mention all this is because I've followed so many recipes like this and been disappointed that lovely golden potatoes failed to tip out!
