Crispy Potatoes

I bought some rice flour and Tapioca starch to try so baking recipes that Kristy posted on My Little Space . She is so talented and has some very creative and different recipes. So I want to try them. In the meanwhile (while I'm trying to collect all the ingredients that I need) I have this super fine flour and starch. I also had some potatoes that needed to be used up. I took this idea from her.

I did peel the potatoes on my daughters request, then cut them in wedges and other shapes to make them about the same size. Toss them on a zip lock bag with half rice flour and tapioca starch, and seasoning, sea salt, pepper, garlic powder, just to dust them. I wanted to bake them but I figured I needed a was for the flour to work as a coating. If I just sprinkle some oil on the baking sheet I didn't think it would work so I toss them in some hot oil in a wok style pan until they start to turn golden brown, turning them so this gets done on both sides. Then transfer from the oil with a slotted spoon to a stoneware cookie sheet, bar pan, pizza stone whatever you have.( I probably use my stoneware cookware every day). Oops that reminds me I have some acorn squash and portobello mushrooms in the oven now...on the stoneware bar pan....okay I'm back and I caught them in time.

The nice thing about the stoneware is you don't have to turn things over to get crispy on both sides, and you don't have to grease it because things don't stick!

Bake them in a 375 oven until they fork tender and the potatoes are done, about 20 minutes. ( I'm guessing, I really wish I would of timed this). I served them with a mayonnaise, spicy mustard sauce and sprinkled with sea salt and Parmesan cheese.
They crisped up so nice and had a wonderful flavor. They didn't even make it to the table, so I guess we ate them as an appetizer. I would make them again. Next time I'll try making it the way Kristy did them.



I would like to thank Kristy for presenting me this Friendship Button. I have been having so much fun blogging. The best part is meeting new friends from all around the world! Thank you
Thank you Kristy you are the best!
