I parboiled the potatoes and they took at least an hour on 210 dgrees (and I have a fan onven!) but they came out lovely, not greasy at all. I added a chopped red pepper and a couple of onions, which was a nice addition. My husband peeled way more than 800g potatoes, but there were none left! Igf there had they would have made a nice frittata base

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.
