Salt and Pepper Oven Fries

IMG_5777

Who doesn’t love a bowl of fries? The ultimate junk food with their fried, crispy, savoury moreish-ness.

This healthier oven-cooked version gives perfect results – crispy and light with only a tiny amount of oil. Add some salt and pepper and they’re ready with little fuss, in no time at all. Whilst it may seem a faff to soak and thoroughly dry the potato batons prior to cooking, it’s quite essential if you want a perfect fluffy inside and crisp outer. Never need your table be disgraced by soggy frozen chips again!
