    Lene's Note:

    A classic Spanish side dish, it is basically spiced potatoes and often, though not always, includes tomatoes. Patatas bravas are a delicious snack in their own right, but make a tasty accompaniment to simple dishes such as my Pecorino Tart With Tarragon Crust or Goats Cheese and Beet Leaf Tortilla.

      These are really good. The only variation I have is in the technique. I think you should maybe let the potatoes cook a while before adding the onions and garlic. I would have liked to let the potatoes get a bit more brown before the onions began to carmelize. Excellent flavors though! (oh, due to diet restrictions, I omitted the sugar)
