Let The Baking Begin, requires four ingredients. FOUR. And an oven. Sounds like a plan to me! Enjoy.
- 1 lb potatoes (about 3 medium potatoes--you may substitute sweet potatoes)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 400 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Scrub the potatoes under running water until thoroughly clean, then dry them and cut them into 1/2 inch sticks (or wedges!)
Fill a large bowl with water and soak the potatoes for 30 minutes to 2 hours to remove the starch. Drain the potatoes and dry them, then toss with ground black pepper, salt & oil. Transfer potatoes to the baking sheet and spread into single layer.
Roast in the oven for 40 minutes, until golden in color and crispy, tossing them at 20 minutes. Serve with ketchup, ranch, or your favorite dipping sauce for fries!
