6 large russet potatoes, peeled or not, as you like
3 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Oil two baking sheets with 1 tablespoon of olive oil each. Slice the potatoes into 1/2 inch wide by 1/4 inch thick fries. In a large. Bowl toss the potatoes with the remaining olive oil. Spread the potatoes out in a single layer on each baking sheet. Bake for 3040 minutes until golden brown. Flip the fries occasionally so that they brown evenly and do not stick. Season and serve.
