Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas mark 4.
  • Prick the baking potatoes with a fork or skewer to let the steam out whilst cooking.
  • Rub them with butter and sprinkle with a little salt.
  • Place the potatoes on a baking tray in the middle of the oven and bake for 45 minutes –1 hour. They should be soft but cooked.
  • When cooked, place them to one side and allow to cool.
  • When cold, slice them into wedges. You should get six out of each potato.
  • Using a deep fat fryer, turn to 175°C/350°F and deep fry the wedges for 3 – 4 minutes until golden brown.
  • If you are using vegetable oil in a deep sided pan, also heat to 175°C/350°F and deep fry the wedges for the same time until golden.
  • I love these with another pinch of salt whilst dipping into a cool dip.
