  • 2 russet potatoes sliced into fry-shaped pieces (skin on or off)
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, and preheat oven to 425.
  • Place the potatoes in a bowl and add olive oil (3 tablespoons), salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you want. Stir to coat well in the oil and seasoning.
  • Spread potatoes out evenly on the baking sheets so they aren't touching.
  • Roast in oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown on the outside.
