    PaulaG's Note:

    This recipe comes from The New American Diet Cookbook with some changes by me. The secret here is to soak the potatoes in ice water for 10 to 15 minutes while the oven is preheating.

      Yummers! I love everything Cajun-style. I made these as directed as a side to a sandwich. So simple and so good. Thanks, Paula for sharing. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.

      Wow! I thought these were just perfect. Except mine were "fat". Oh, they are suppose to help make you skinny, I get it now. Very easy to throw together and I was surprised that they were cooked in the 30 minute time frame. Loved the cajun seasoning. Thanks for posting. :)
