THE BEST Oven Chips
These were quite tasty. We did have to broil them for a few minutes on both sides at the end, since our burgers were ready and these could have cooked another 5-10 minutes.
Potatoes, as many as you like Beth used 6 medium sized
Oil, with a high smoke point
Salt, good quality
Chop your potatoes into chips (around ½ an inch or 1 cm thickness is ideal)
Choose a baking dish, making sure it's big enough to take all your chips in one layer (use more than one if necessary)Beth used a jelly roll
Pour a thin layer of oil into your dish, just enough to thinly coat the bottom of the dish
Preheat the oven to 400F/200C, and place the oiled dish in to preheat for at least 15 minutes.
Place the chopped chips into a pan, and cover with cold water.
Add a pinch of salt, and bring up to the boil. Boil for exactly two minutes and then drain and set aside to steam and dry (the drier the chips, the crispier they'll be)
Once the oil has had it's 15 minutes heating, carefully add the chips to the pan, shaking gently, to ensure they are in one layer.
Place the pan back in the oven for 15 minutes, then take them out and flip the chips over using a metal spatula.
Place back in the oven for a further 20 minutes, at which point they should be golden, very crisp, and ready to be drained slightly, doused with salt, and devoured!
