  2. In a deep saucepan, add the chopped potatoes and cover them with water. Salt the water. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 15 minutes. A fork inserted should go through with almost no resistance. Drain.
  3. Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C). Set the baking rack to the lowest position.
  4. In a medium baking tray, toss the boiled potatoes with the oil and spread them out, making sure the largest, flat surface is facing down.
