Ingredients

  • 600g maris piper potatoes
  • 3 tbsp goose fat or vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Cut the potatoes into medium-thick chips. Drop into boiling water, bring back to the boil and cook for 5 minutes. Drain well, and spread out to cool and dry fully (this is vital!).
  2. Heat the fat in a large, deep baking tray for 10 minutes. Add a chip – if it fizzes, your fat is hot enough; if not, heat for another 5 minutes. Add the chips in a single layer and give them all a good basting. Cook for 35 minutes, until really golden. Lift from the fat with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen towel. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt.
  3. Fry the eggs to your liking. To be really indulgent, you can fry them in goose fat too. Serve with the chips.
