Side Suggestions: Oven Fried Potatoes
Preheat oven to 425˚F. Wash and scrub 2 medium-sized Yukon gold potatoes. Leave the peel on and slice lengthwise into ¼-inch strips. In a large bowl, toss with 2 teaspoons olive oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste. Place on a nonstick baking pan or sheet and bake for about 30-35 minutes, until golden. Turn potatoes around with a spatula a couple of times during cooking for even browning.
