Oven Chips

We've not had a recipe for quite a while, so here's the reult of tday's experiment. And an excellent meal it was too ...

Cold Roast Beef
Mixed Salad a la mode
Homemade Oven Chips

Why have I never thought of doing my own oven chips before? It is so dead easy and much better than deep frying (which we never do).

Homemade Oven Chips

Pre-heat the oven to about 220C.
Cut enough potatoes into chunky-sized chips and boil or steam them for 3 minutes or so. Drain them and allow to cool a little so they're handleable.
In a ziplok bag or bowl put a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and some freshly ground black pepper (optional). You can also add salt, herbs or garlic if you wish.
Toss the chips in the oil and transfer then to a baking sheet. Spread them out so they're in a single layer, so use two baking sheets if needed.
Roast in the oven until done — about 25 minutes — turning them once.

It is so easy. And although they're oiled at least you can control the quantity of oil and you're using "better for you" olive oil. It is no worse than doing another of our staples, garlic roast potatoes.

I foresee this will become a regular addition to the repertoire.
