  • 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 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.
