These. are. slammin'. My son never met a potato he liked that didn't take an oil bath under the Golden Arches. He snarfed these down. And I found them incredibly easy. Put in. Set timer and get some other junk done. Flip (took less than a minute - I timed it). Repeat. Chef John rocks!

Amazing that he calls this "simple" and "easy." If I have to babysit the oven and turn that many potato slices by hand a half-dozen times, then transfer them individually to a rack, this recipe is neither simple nor easy.
