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!

Well, I've been on a Patatas Bravas kick ever since I tried another one on RecipeZaar. This was excellent, a bit sweeter and less hot than the other, and this had more tomato taste. I did make sure to use the smokey paprika. I liked the way the potatoes browned in this recipe, and although this recipe suggested serving it with a mayonnaise sauce (as did the other), I did not this time. I preferred it with the mayo sauce, but this was quite excellent too! Thanks FT.

This recipe is absolutely to-die-for! While the potatoes are what you'd expect from roasted potatoes the sauce is AMAZING! I made it as is, (don't forego the smoked paprika's the smokey flavour is what this sauce is all about!) I had no parsley so I used chopoped fresh basil. Made for the Spanish Leg of ZWT5

I made this dish tonight. We really enjoyed it. Simple but good. Goes as side dish with lots of food. You can make the sauce as spicy or mild as you like. Made for zwt5.

Very good, very easy... and eagerly devoured by all of my guests! I served this as a side to Maria's Best Crock Pot Roast, which it complimented perfectly. My only change would be to double the amount of the sauce, since everyone loved the flavor and wished there was more of it.

A great recipe. I was surprised by the spice, but in a good way. I wish it was a little bit prettier though.

What a great recipe! I have used this to take to potlucks and it's a hit all the way around, especially since no one makes vegetarian dishes. I didn't have access to the types of paprika (small town), so I doubled up on basic paprika and doubled the chili powder. I used roma tomatos too- great texture. This recipe is fantastic and a crowd pleaser. Great job French Tart!
