Rather than going through the hassles of deep frying (and, what do you do with all that oil in the fryer?) try oven frying. It’s quick and easy. It gives you a golden fried potato which is incredibly fluffy and delicious inside.
20-22 oz. potatoes
2 tbsp. olive oil
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
Pre-heat oven to 450F.
Scrub the potatoes and slice in half lengthwise. Then, cut into strips ½” thick.
In a large bowl, toss the potato slices in the olive oil until well coated.
Sprinkle the salt and pepper over the potatoes. Again, toss well.
Arrange the potato slices on a baking tray.
Bake for 30 min, until turning golden. Flip potatoes and return to the oven.
