Oven-Fried Chips

A great success with children. Once I discovered how to make these I was freed forever from the tyranny of the chip pan.

Ingredients

  • Potatoes, cleaned and peeled if necessary
  • Sunflower oil
  • Paprika
  • Salt

Method

Prepare the potatoes and cut into chip-sized pieces. Dry well and put into a large bowl containing enough oil so each chip is just coated, but not soaked. Put into a roasting tin and cook at gas mark 7/425°F/220°C for about 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven, turn them in the tin, sprinkle with paprika and salt (the paprika browns the chips) and cook for another 15 minutes or so until the chips are nicely browned.
