Lite Fried PotatoesSubmitted by: GOSSAMERFIREFLY
IntroductionThese potatoes have a lot of flavor, and are far lower in calories than regular fried potatoes. Perfect for a weekend breakfast or as a side at dinner.

2 tbs olive oil
1 tsp paprika
3/4 tsp chili powder
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp onion powder
6 1/2 c diced potatoes
For even more flavor I use smoked paprika and smoked sea salt in place of the regular version of these spices. I also substitute red potatoes if I have them on hand.
Number of Servings: 8

Wonderful side dish, my husband is not crazy about potatoes, but I caught him sneaking some of the left overs! - 9/30/10

I'm glad you guys like this recipe so much! I found it in a magazine when I was visiting the doctor as a kid and I copied it. My mom couldn't believe that they could be so good with so little oil, but it's been a family favorite ever since.
Amazing! I added Tonys Creole Seasoning instead of the chili powder and put a tiny bit of lemon juice. It was funny when my boyfriend saw fried in the title he got excited but then I told him it would really be baked. But I think this blew his mind!! - 10/21/12
