  • 4 russet potatoes
  • 1/4 C vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.

  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Wash the potatoes and cut into 1/2-inch sticks, leaving the skin on. Once the water is at a rolling boil, submerge the potato sticks in the water and cook for 10 minutes or until firm fork tender.

  3. Drain the water from the pot and toss them in oil, sea salt, ground black pepper, and paprika until evenly coated. Then lay them out on parchment lined baking sheets without over crowding.

  4. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, flipping half way through. Serve immediately.
