Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 medium (about 8 ounces each) baking potatoes
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. 

Brush 2 large cookie sheets with 1 tablespoon oil.

Cut each unpeeled potato lengthwise into quarters, then cut each quarter lengthwise into 2 wedges (or, cut potatoes crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices).

In large bowl, toss potatoes with salt, pepper, and remaining 1 tablespoon oil until evenly coated.

Divide potatoes between cookie sheets, spreading each batch into an even layer. Place cookie sheets on 2 oven racks and oven-fry potatoes 25 minutes or until tender and crisp, turning potatoes over once and switching pans between upper and lower racks halfway through cooking.
