baked potatoes

If you’re picky about your potatoes and think that home fries are never done right, you should give a try to the perfect combination of fluffy and creamy on the inside and crispy and salty on the outside. Have we already mentioned the amazing seasoning on them? The must-have is smoked paprika, it’s a real game changer!

These potatoes are cooked in the oven, they aren’t greasy and much more healthy than anything you can find in the grocery store. They taste like the best fries you ever had. In this recipe you will get 1 pan of food, which should be enough for 6 people. You can easily double the recipe to feed a bigger crowd.

Smoked paprika gives potatoes a delicious, brown color. If you haven’t used this spice in any recipes, you should start now. It’s smoky and sweet at the same time, so any dish becomes more flavorful. These potatoes are extremely easy and tasty, you need no skill to make them yourself. Children like these, too! So, what’s not to love about this recipe?
