Pro tip: Be sure to slice evenly for a consistent cooking time for all pieces.


  • Potatoes: Can use baking potatoes, such as russet or Idaho (not waxy), or sweet potatoes.

  • Cooking oil: Can use truffle oil for white potatoes, or for sweet potatoes, use macadamia or coconut oil.

  • Optional seasonings: Ground black pepper, dried oregano (for white potatoes).


  1. Peel and slice potatoes into uniform strips (narrow for extra crispy, wide for Texas-style).

  2. Place in cool water for 10-15 minutes.

  3. Drain, rinse, and dry well (wet potatoes will not have “fried” texture).

  4. In a large bowl, add the potatoes and, while shaking the bowl with one hand, drizzle 1-2 tablespoons olive oil over the potatoes until they are coated.

  5. Place on sprayed cookie sheet in a 375ºF oven.

  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes, then flip potatoes and continue baking until cooked through and crispy.
