Spiced Home Fried Potatoes

I have so many different favorite foods including mushrooms, avocados and yeah I said it-  Chocolate! (more like a favorite snack anyway)  But my favorite food by far is potatoes- fried, boiled, baked, potato salad, french fries, potato chips...you name it! My favorite potato is Yukon gold which I'm sure you can already tell from my other recipes with potatoes in them. But I like baby red potatoes, russet potatoes etc as well.
So you better believe that I am constantly thinking about potatoes and how to make something new and yummy with them. 

                                                   So here's one of my newer potato recipes:

-4 Large Yukon Gold Potatoes
-1 Onion Sliced, in desired fashion
-1/4 Cup Oil for Deep Frying
Spices- 1/4 Cup Paprika, 1/4 Cup Chili Powder, 4 Tablespoons Garlic Powder, 4 Tablespoons Onion Powder, 1 Tablespoon Salt, 1 Tsp Pepper, 1 Tablespoon Sugar

Start by bringing a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes to the pot. Boil for 15 minutes and shut the flame. Do not boil for more then 15 minutes. Take off peel with fingers once the potatoes have cooled. I like to pour in ice cold water to stop the cooking and cool them off so I can peel them right away. But that's just a preference.  Do not dry off the potatoes. Keep them moist so they will be easily rolled in spice mixture. Once peel is removed, chop potatoes into medium sized wedges. Start a non stick frying pan with the oil on a low flame to warm up. Prepare a spice mixture with the paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder sugar, salt and pepper in a bowl. Roll the potato pieces in the spice mixture till completely covered in it. Put the potatoes in the hot frying pan carefully. Let them fry for about 5 minutes on each side moving them around a little so they do not burn. Once finished they should have a nice crispy outside and a soft mushy inside Yum! Take them from frying pan with a slotted spoon and lay them out on a paper toweled plate or pan to remove excess oil from them. 

Trying to keep it a little healthier? Once rolled in spices you can put them in the oven and bake on 400 for 20 minutes or until crisp instead of frying them.

These can be served as a side dish for any meal.

Serving it as a side for a Dairy dish? You can add some Parmesan cheese to the spice mixture. Delish!
