Best Potatoes to Use
POTATOES: The best potatoes to use are Russet Potatoes. Make sure they are smooth and free of blemishes. One secret to extra crispy potatoes is to cut them, and then let them soak for an hour or so before cooking. Remember to pat them dry, so there is no moisture left. Then add the olive oil and the spices.
SPICES: The secret spices to this recipe are just a little salt, pepper, and paprika. However, if a spicier potato is desired, then sprinkle with cayenne.
