  • Wash the potatoes and remove any ugly bits.
  • Slice each potato till halfway in as many slices as you can/feel like.
  • Season with olive oil, salt and roast them in the oven at 200°c for about 40 minutes. Turn the tray halfway and bask the potatoes with the olive oil. This will cook them evenly and crispy on all sides.
  • After 40 minutes you can bask them once more and add the bay leaves and thyme. Roast for 5 more minutes, finish with some Maldon sea salt and they are ready to be served.
