  • 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.

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

Super easy and super tasty, for total cooking novices such as myself one large potato is enough for one person... discovered this after chopping up two and realised I had enough food for a week!

This is super great! I have even used this with sweet potatoes :)

Cooked in 20 minutes at our electric fan oven's highest temp which is around 220-240. I drizzled the oil on the potatoes when they were in the saucepan (after draining obviously) as was easier to coat the chips that way. Healthy and simple method to cook chips. Not as good as takeaway ones, but certainly better than shop bought oven chips.

Too complicated .... I cut up as described and then just dumped them into a pan of boiling oil!! Much easier and delicious! :-/

My husband and I loved these 20 minutes was enough time for them to be perfectly cooked on gas mark 9. Think I did put a bit to much oil on though so will use less next time.

I find it easier to put the oil (and any extra flavourings) into a saucepan, add the chips and shake them around a bit, then put onto the baking tray.
