Serves 4


3 large Baking potatoes, peeled, cut
1 tablespoon (15ml) Vegetable cooking oil


Cut potatoes in strips after peeling. (or you could leave the skins on for potato wedges)

Coat baking sheet with no-stick cooking spray. Put potato strips into large bowl. Drizzle with cooking oil. Toss together well to coat.

Arrange on baking sheet. Bake in a single layer in 450 F oven for 15 min.

Turn and bake about 10-15 minutes longer. (Note: time depends on thickness, check sooner if you cut them thin.) Test a strip for crispness.
