Stefano proves that delicious, golden fries can be made in the oven.
4 Russet or Idaho potatoes, unpeeled
About ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Cut each potatoes into 6 to 8 wedges. Transfer to a large bowl, coat generously with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine.
Spread the wedges on a large non-stick baking sheet. Divide between 2 baking sheets if fries are overlapping. Bake until fries are golden brown and fork tender, turning fries occasionally, about 30 to 35 minutes.
Yield: 4 to 6 servings.
