These 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.

Number of Servings: 8


    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
    cooking spray


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Peel the potatoes, if you prefer them with skin you can leave it on, and dice into 3/4" to 1" cubes. Place potatoes in a mixing bowl. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil with the spices. Pour the olive oil and spice mixture over the potatoes and toss to coat. Spray a 13x9x2 pan with cooking spray. Arrange the potatoes on the cookie sheet in a single layer and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until browned to your liking. Serve immediately. Makes about 8 1/2 c servings

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.

    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.

  • These are good, and I've made them several times. Because of warm weather I prefer to not fire up the oven in my RV so decided to try them in my electric skillet, if needed you can spray the electric skill with a non-stick spray that doesn't add calories. - 5/9/15

  • 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

  • These were really great, my whole family LOVED them! I will definitely make these again! The only thing I`d do different next time is maybe only use 1 tsp of salt and then add after cooking if needed.
    Thanks for the recipe! - 9/26/10

  • My husband loves these potatoes and I do too. The only change I made was to replace the onion powder with some chopped onions. Goes with anything and almost any meal. - 8/30/10
