Lighter Crash Potatoes

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by LEGG Gustafson

My version of the Pioneer Woman's Crash Hot Potatoes. She is not shy about using lots of oil. I am trying to keep things a bit lighter, being a city dweller and all.

These were really easy and good. For spices I just used salt and pepper and dill. I also cooked at 400 since that's what my chicken was cooking at and they still came out crisp and brown. Thanks!!!
