“What I say is that, if a fellow really likes potatoes, he must be a pretty decent sort of fellow.” –  A. A. Milne

I got this recipe from my sister, it’s been a family favorite for over ten years.  I wish I could give credit to the creator, but neither of us know who that was.  Whoever you are, thank you!

Potatoes is one of those versatile vegetables that makes everyone happy.  Now, before you try this recipe – I’m warning you…do not share with other family members unless you want to be forced to make them over and over again!

You’ve been warned.

Tips on Making Simply Amazing Crispy Roasted Potatoes: 

1) You can adjust the cayenne pepper, depending how hot you like your potatoes.  My sister uses one teaspoon.  I like spicy…but not that much.

2) Try and use organic potatoes.  Non-organic potatoes are sprayed with pesticides and the soil they’re grown is treated to fungicide.

Check your grocery store specials for sales on organically grown potatoes.  I bought mine for $1.99 for a three-pound bag.  I bought 30 pounds of potatoes.  I do after all, have to taste-test recipes for you…right?

It still surprises me that people don’t know what it is.  I love it so much…I always have an extra bottle on hand so I don’t ever run out.  You can find it here.
