    French Tart's Note:

    There are many recipes for this famous Spanish tapas dish - this recipe was given to me by a Spanish friend from Madrid, and is the only recipe I use now..........I like the fact that the potatoes are baked in the oven, making it easier to prepare & socialise with a glass of Sangria or two! In Spain, Patatas Bravas is often served with mayonnaise or alioli - however you choose to serve it, this is a "must" for your Tapas table!

      These were lovely. I should have chopped up onions and tomato more finely but didn't because I was a lazy butt. I let myself down, but the flavours were nice. I found it nearly too spicy for myself, but it was well enjoyed by my guests. Thanks.

      I was quite cautious with the heat on this and ended up having to add more chilli, so don't be afraid, it needs the heat. Really liked being able to roast the potatoes rather than frying them.

      This has been a favourite dish of mine for a long time, but I've only made it a few times. This was a really easy way to prepare it. Cooking for some young tastebuds I went easy on the spice and the smoky paprika, the sauce was still very flavourful. It was maybe a tad sweet for me, so I'd probably cut the sugar down to 1/2 tsp next time, probably depends on your tomatoes as well. Aside from your tapas table, these would be an amazing addition to brunch and this recipe makes that an easy task. Thanks for sharing FT!
