Recipe Ingredients

The secret to our thick and crispy fries is in the method – simply “rough” up the potatoes after boiling before finishing off in the oven. Serve with HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Garlic Aioli or any of your favourite condiments.

  • 750 g floury potatoes (Agria, red rascal, Ilam Hardy)
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Garlic Aioli

Recipe Method

  1. Preheat oven to 210°C (fan assisted).
  2. Peel and cut potatoes into thick chips about 2 cm thick. Put them into a saucepan with just enough cold water to cover the potatoes. Cover. Bring to the boil. Remove from the heat.
  3. Drain potatoes very well. This is best done through a colander. Return potatoes to the pan over a low heat to allow any excess water to evaporate. With the lid on shake the pan to ‘rough’ up the potatoes.
  4. Pour oil into a roasting pan and heat in the oven until hot. Add the potatoes in a single layer, turning them to coat in the oil. Roast for 20 minutes. Turn fries and roast a further 15-20 minutes, until cooked, golden and crispy. Season with salt. Serve immediately with HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Garlic Aioli.
