4 medium baking potatoes, scrubbed
2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 ½ tsp. kosher salt
¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place a baking sheet in the oven. Cut potatoes lengthwise into uniform pieces. Place in a bowl and toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper. When baking sheet is hot (about 15 minutes), place potatoes on the baking sheet in a single layer. Return baking sheet to the oven, and cook until the potatoes are golden on the bottom, about 30 minutes. Turn the potatoes over and continue cooking until golden all over, about 15 minutes more.
