    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Preheat oven to 220 C / 200 C Fan / Gas 7.
    2. Peel the potatoes if large enough or leave skins on if small.
    3. Cut potatoes evenly. It doesn't matter if you cut them chunky or thin.
    4. Place in a deep sided mixing bowl, the bigger the better, and add the oil. Swirl the potatoes around until they are all coated in oil.
    5. Place on a shallow baking tray making sure none are stuck together or on top of each other.
    6. Bake in the top of the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, turn if necessary. Remove from the oven when golden brown and tender then serve!


    If you have very small potatoes try making wedges. You can buy herbs, cheeses and spicy flavours from the supermarket especially for homemade wedges.

    Already doing this but tweak for midweek - rushing in from work I pre-cut my chips, and blanche them prior to freezing. I do this for roasted as well. That way no bags start sprouting and I always have something quick to cook.  -  27 Apr 2014


    Used sweet potato instead but still very nice and very easy.  -  27 Oct 2015
