what do you call those potato things?

That are sliced thicker than a potato chip, but are in the same shape, they are baked like fries in the oven. I would really like that recipe and I'm not sure what region it is from because I can't remember where I was when I ate them (gotta love traveling while sick). lol.

  • I haven't made these for a long time, but I am pretty sure this is how they are made:

    Slice potatoes (I use sweet potatoes) and toss with olive oil and sea salt. If you would like, add some herbs. Lay flat on a cookie sheet and bake at around 375; turn when they start to turn golden (7 minutes?) and bake to desired crispness.

  • We call em Jo- Jo potatoes out here in Wa. Sorry don't have a recipe as we just get them from the deli counter at the Grocery store. They're really good with ranch dressing.

  • I make potatoes similar to what rkoloms described above, with olive oil, salt, pepper, and italian seasoning, baked just like she said. They are SO good!
