- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Scrub potatoes. Quarter lengthwise; slice diagonally 1 1/2 inches thick. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss slices with olive oil, dry mustard, ground ginger, and cayenne; season with coarse salt. Roast, tossing occasionally, until crisp-tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
