Today I threw together an excellent recipe for what are, in my opinion, the crispiest oven baked potatoes. I have always been a fan of the potato, in fact it is my favorite vegetable. I find that the potato tastes best when it is nice and crunchy, so let me tell you how to get them perfect! Let’s start with these simple ingredients:
- 4-5 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced into chunks.
- 1 half clove of garlic, chopped fine
- Olive oil
- Ground red pepper
Start by washing and peeling your potatoes. Then cut the potatoes into halves and lay them face down on the cutting board. Cut them once down the middle, turn them and slice them into chunks. Bring a pot of water to a boil, add a little bit of salt and add the potatoes. Boil the potatoes for 15 minutes. While the potatoes are boiling, chop up the half clove of garlic. Once the potatoes are done, transfer them to a colander to drain the water and shake the potatoes for up to 10 seconds to get the edges roughed up. This will help to get the potatoes nice and crispy.
Next, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and pour the potatoes over it. Season the potatoes with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Flip the potatoes and season the other side also, and add a little additional olive oil. Put into the oven at 230 degrees celsius, for 50-60 minutes. When the potatoes have been cooking for 25-30 minutes, take them out and flip the potatoes to the other side with a spatula. This will ensure the potatoes will have both sides crispy. Once they are done, take them out and drain the potatoes on paper towels for a couple minutes. Eat and enjoy these orgasmic potatoes!
