Bake-Fried Potatoes

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Island Girl 525

Papas Fritas from Steven Raichlen's Healthy Latin Cooking. I have made these a lot! They are so good. Soaking in the water makes the texture of these perfect and the paprika gives them good coloring. The taste fried, but they are much more healthy. I use a cookie-sheet covered in foil and sprayed with pam. The key is to flip/ stir after 10 minutes or they will stick. If your potatoes are small, use four.

As did another reviewer, I used garlic powder instead of fresh garlic. I lined my baking sheet with parchment paper and mixed the oil and seasonings with the potatoes in a bowl rather than directly in the pan. These oven fries are very good. Everyone enjoyed them. Made for Spring 2010 PAC
