SALT AND PEPPER FRIES (Adapted from Martha Stewart)

2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes (4 or 5 large), cut into 1/2-inch-wide wedges

1/4 cup vegetable oil

Coarse salt and ground pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F, with racks in top third and middle. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on two rimmed baking sheets and toss each with 2 tablespoons oil. Season well with salt and pepper.

Bake until golden brown, crisp, and cooked through, 40 minutes, rotating sheets and flipping potatoes halfway through.
