Delicious with Spanish meatball and butter bean stew

OK, but with a slightly odd taste. Nothing like the Spanish patatas bravas.
If you decide to make them, make sure they're cut into tiny cubes and keep in the oven for over an hour.

worked a treat! I also added some sliced pepper 25 mn before the end of cooking. The potatoes were done just right, but I wasn't too strict with the timing, it may have taken 50 mn in the end. I think the secret is to cut them in smallish chunks. They were delicious. Indeed, my husband said they were just like the ones we'd had at the Spanish restaurant...

These were really delicious. I wasn't very strict on the timings, just cooked them til they were almost done then added the lemon juice which transformed them into something extra special.

Tried this recipe but I must have done something wrong as the result was truly hideous. Overpowering flavour of tomato purée while even after an extra 40 minutes roasting, the potatoes remained crunchy inside. I can only assume the potatoes should be parboiled first but this isn't specified.

Jury still out........just made these for myself & my husband. We thought they were ok but not sure that I got the mixture of tomatoe puree, paprika & oil right as I felt the taste was predominently tomatoe. I didn't have smoked paprike & used ordinary paprika instead so maybe this is why. My mixture was quite lumpy & a bit dry so i had to keep adding oil while cooking. I did part boil first but still had to cook them in the oven at 200C for about 40 mins - they were crispy but a little burnt :-( Unfortunately they did not look as good as the recipe pic! Think I will need to give these another try for a better result.

These are great! Very easy to prepare and make a refreshing change from plain and boring side dishes. I added a bit of curry powder to the coating mix to spice them up a bit and also cooked them on gas mark 5 instead which I think was a good move, although they were still slightly firm inside so next time I think I will par-boil them first as well. I'm sure with a bit of practice I will manage to perfect them!

Really lovely although I think next time I will not bother with the lemon juice.

I served these with barbecued leg of lamb. I par-boiled the potatoes then gave them 15 - 20 mins in the oven on fan 180 and they were fabulous and crispy too. Will definitely be making these again and think I will add some garlic to the tomato purée mixture next time (as someone else here did) - I think that would work really well. Very yummy!
