Yield: Serves 4
- 4 medium baking potatoes
- 3 to 4 tablespoons olive oil or canola oil
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Creole or Cajun seasoning, or use your favorite seasoned salt blend
Peel potatoes, if desired, then slice lengthwise into thin slices (between 1/4 and 1/2inches thick). Slice the slices into 1/4- to 1/2-inch strips.
Drizzle a little olive oil over the bottom of a large, shallow baking pan, such as a jelly roll pan. Spread the oil around to coat the bottom of the pan.
Dry potato strips and toss in a bowl with 2 to 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Toss the potato strips with the seasonings, coating thoroughly. Spread potato strips in a single layer in the prepared baking pan.
Bake for about 12 minutes. Stir and turn the potatoes and continue baking for 8 to 10 minutes longer. Turn again and bake for about 10 minutes longer, or until tender and browned.
