Servings 6 servings
- 2 lbs. yukon gold or russet potatoes
- 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 tsp. kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp. black pepper
Dice potatoes into 1/2-inch chunks. Place in a bowl and cover with cold water. Soak for 30 minutes. Drain water and pat potatoes very dry with a towel.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spread potatoes into a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with cornstarch and toss with your hands until well coated. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss again with your hands.
Spread potatoes into an even layer and make sure they aren't crowded. You may need to use two baking sheets. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and flip each potato. This will take a few minutes but it's so worth it to get them completely crispy. Place back in the oven and roast another 10 to 15 minutes, until golden and crispy on both sides.
