  • 2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes (4 or 5 large), cut into 1/2-inch-wide wedges
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with racks in top third and middle. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on two rimmed baking sheets and toss each with 2 tablespoons oil. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. Bake until golden brown, crisp, and cooked through, 40 minutes, rotating sheets and flipping potatoes halfway through.
