Olive Oil and Sea Salt Oven Roasted Crispy Potato Rounds
I love french fries, tater tots, and pretty much all forms of potato that are crunchy and crispy. I also love to roast just about anything and everything in the oven. In this recipe, I’ve combined both to come up with a wonderful way to make crispy potato rounds that are perfect for dipping.
Try serving these as a side dish, or as an appetizer, alongside sour cream or ketchup for dipping. You’ll find that they disappear almost immediately!
My kids loved them, too, which is a real triumph. I know a recipe is a winner when they love it.
When making these oven roasted crispy potato rounds, it helps to line your baking pan with something nonstick. Personally, I like to use parchment paper. It releases perfectly and can even be reused. I usually buy Reynolds Parchment Paper because it’s affordable and it works very well.
Tips for Making Oven Roasted Crispy Potato Rounds
- You may substitute other oils, such as canola or vegetable oil, if you like. I like olive oil because of its flavor.
- You’ll determine whether or not these crispy potato rounds are done by their color and texture. The time is more of a guideline than a hard and fast rule. You’ll want your rounds to be golden brown almost all over, and the skins around the edges should be wrinkled.
- If you have a fancy salt in your pantry, this is the time to whip it out. With only three ingredients, each flavor really shines.
Olive Oil and Sea Salt Oven-Roasted Crispy Potato Rounds
- 2 large Russet potatoes
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 2 teaspoons Sea salt
- Preheat the oven to 425 F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper (if you don't have parchment paper, spritz the sheets with cooking spray).
- Slice the potatoes in 1/6 inch rounds, which is a little narrower than the barrel of a pencil. Toss the rounds in a bowl with the olive oil until thoroughly coated.
- Lay the rounds spaced apart on the baking sheets. Sprinkle them all with sea salt, then flip them all over and sprinkle the other sides with more sea salt.
- Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the rounds are golden brown all over and a cooled round has a crispy texture on the outside. Remove from oven, cool slightly, and serve with sour cream or ketchup for dipping.
