Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. I used six Idaho potatoes for this platter. Have plenty of fresh Thyme and Rosemary on hand as well. You will need three rimmed baking sheets.
Plan on a potato per person.
It will also help if you have one of these super thin metal spatulas and a pair of tongs.
You will need fresh ground salt and pepper. For this recipe I used about 3 tablespoons each of chopped rosemary and thyme.
Using a good sharp knife, slice the potato in half long-ways.
Flip each half, cut side down and slice into 1/4 inch lengths .
Lay those lengths of potato on their side and slice them in half long-ways.
You will end up with these beautiful french fries!
Have on hand a good quality olive oil.
Working with the slices from one potato at a time , place them in a bowl, and drizzle with about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Shake them around in the bowl to coat well with the olive oil. (You could also use a Zip Top bag for this part)
