Equipment

  • 1 large shallow roasting tray / tin - the darker coloured the better to absorb more heat.

Ingredients

  • 750 g potatoes about 4 medium potatoes. Floury varieties are best eg Maris Piper, King Edward or Russet
  • 3 tbs rapeseed / Canola oil
  • 1 tbs cornmeal
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven: 230℃ / 220℃ fan / 450℉ / Gas mark 8
  • Peel and cut your potatoes into 1cm slices and then into 1cm x 1cm sticks.
  • Rinse in cold water and drain.
  • Place your drained chips in a large microwaveable bowl. Microwave on full power for 5 minutes and drain.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of rapeseed oil to the chips and coat well.
  • Mix together the cornmeal, paprika, salt and pepper. Coat the oiled chips with your seasoned cornmeal.
  • Grease your roasting tray with a little oil and place your chips evenly on the tin. Allow plenty of room for air circulation so your chips can crisp and brown.
  • Place in pre-heated oven. Turn the chips over after 15 minutes and pop back in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • Serve straightaway with a sprinkling of salt.

Notes

  • 1 cm chips will give you chunky chips, feel free to cut them thinner, just cook them for five minutes less.
  • You can freeze homemade oven chips once you have par-cooked them and coated them in oil and seasoning. Let them cool and open freeze on a tray beforing popping in a freezer bag. Cook for 30 mins on a roasting tray, turning after 20 mins.
