Crispy Roasted Potato Rounds

2 large russet potatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon sea salt

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Prepare a sheet pan by lining with aluminum foil. Wash and dry potatoes; slice into 1/4 inch thick rounds. In a large zip top bag, combine olive oil, sea salt, and potato slices. Seal the bag and shake carefully for about 2 minutes until all slices are covered in a starchy paste. Place potatoes in a single layer on the prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, until the bottoms of the potatoes turn golden brown. Flip the potatoes over, then return to the oven for about another 10 minutes.

The simple ingredients are russet potatoes, olive oil, and sea salt.

Slice the potatoes in 1/4 inch thick rounds, then combine with olive oil and sea salt in a zip top bag.

The sea salt adds the perfect bit of saltiness to these potatoes, and the small bit of olive oil produces a nice crispiness to the outside.
