I'm pregnant with my first and having been craving potatoes in all forms this week. Hubby made these for dinner tonight and they really hit the spot. Perfectly crispy on the outside and soft and moist on the inside. The cayenne pepper added just the right amount of kick and flavor. We didn't change a thing and will definitely make them again! Thanks! :)

These were really good. I served them with smoothies for breakfast. I love the spiciness of them, and they went great with ketchup.

We enjoy these and I have made several times now, especially when I am serving something else that might not be so popular (always have at least 1 menu item that you know is a winner!). I usually use egg substitute to reduce cholesterol and this works well (also handy when cutting recipe in half).
