I'm going to try the slimming world method ie par boil then bake with smear of oil. Don't think frylight will cut the mustard.

So I want big, chunky chips.

Maris Pipers, for sure.
I make my chips this way and find the best oil is rapeseed. I parboil the chips for about 9 mins, let them dry, toss them in about a tsp of the oil then slap them onto a preheated pan and shove in the oven for 25 mins...they're gorgeous. It's hard persuading hubby to have something other than chips for his dinner at times..

I tried the non par boil method suggested by the Two Chubby Cubs blog (it's brilliant, and. hilarious) and the result was pleasant but not amazing.

I think next time I'll try the par boil.

Par boil worked a treat. I chilled them in the fridge then roasted them later in a small amount of olive oil. Bit of a faff but extremely tasty result!
