  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with olive oil.
  2. Prepare the Potatoes: Wash and peel the potatoes. Cut them into sticks, about 1/2 inch thick.
  3. Season the Potatoes: In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, smoked paprika, garlic powder, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Add the potato sticks to the bowl and toss until they are evenly coated with the seasoning mixture.

  5. Roast the Potatoes: Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and roast for 25-30 minutes, or until the potato sticks are golden brown and crispy. Flip them halfway through the cooking time to ensure they roast evenly.
  6. Serve: Once done, remove the potato sticks from the oven and transfer them to a serving dish. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
