  • 1 large russet potato
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Parmesan cheese


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Scrub potato clean. Slice into thin pieces. Stack and slice into thin strips. Add to a medium bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, parsley, sea salt and optional cayenne. Toss by hand to coat well. Transfer to a parchment line baking sheet.
  • For soft potatoes cook for 10-12 minutes. Crisp potatoes 15-20 minutes. Toss potatoes with a spatula at the 10 minute mark. Check every 5 minutes after to remove any crisp pieces and allowing the rest to continue cooking to desired doneness.
  • Transfer to a plate and immediately sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
