  • 750g Desirée potato (about 3 medium large), peeled



    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


  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.

Wow. These are ridiculously good! I've made oven chips before, but nothing ever came close. I'm definitely making these again.

How many calories per portion? Any ideas?

Not that much - just the kcal from the potatoes - about 200 per potato - and from the oil (I use olive and that's 125 per tablespon) so about 300 per person! Not bad really

On initial assumption - a lot!

Very easy to do. Cooking time seems twice as long! I also added garlic pressed over chips for a hint of something different!
