Ingredients:  
2 large Idaho potatoes
Olive Oil
Season salt
garlic powder

Directions:
Directions:
Heat oven to 450.
Scrub potatoes, do not peel.
Cut each potato lengthwise in half, then each half in half, and again until you have eight long pieces from each potato.
Try to make each slice the same size for even cooking.
Soak potato slices in ice water 10-15 minutes. Do not skip this step! It helps leach extra starch from potatoes and you get a crispier result.
Drain potatoes and dry completely, using paper towels or a dish towel.
Put dried slices in a large bowl, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with seasonings,
Mix well so each piece is coated with oil and seasonings.
Lay on a cookie sheet covered with foil, make sure pieces are not touching.
Bake for 45 minutes.
Check part way through and turn slices over for even cooking.

Personal Notes:
This recipe comes from my sister Sara, and will forever be known as Sara Potatoes in our house. They are crispy and delicious, and worth the extra work of soaking and drying.
These can be made with sweet potatoes also, but only need to cook about 25-30 minutes at 375 degrees.
