If you cut up the potatoes ahead of time, keep them in cold water so that they don’t discolor.
Makes 2 to 3 servings.
- 2 russet potatoes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- salt and pepper, to taste
DIRECTIONS 1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Scrub the potatoes well; cut into quarters lengthwise, then crosswise. Place in a bowl; toss with the oil, paprika, salt and pepper.
2. Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, until tender, brown and crispy. Shake once during baking. Remove from the baking sheet with a metal spatula and serve on a platter. Sprinkle with a little extra salt, if desired.
