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

The refrigerator light goes on...

Patatas Bravas is a staple of Spanish Tapas menus worldwide.  Generally the potatoes are deep fried, but oven roasted are just as good in my opinion.  It certainly seems that some of the best patatas bravas I have eaten in tapas bars in Spain oven roast the potatoes, often in smaller batches so they are very fresh. 

These are often served with Romesco Sauce, or sometimes just mayonnaise or a garlic aioli.

Cut the potatoes into wedges about 1 inch by 1/2 inch.

Place a large pan with raised sides (perhaps a roasting pan or a cookie sheet, preferably non-stick) in the oven.

Preheat the oven to 350F.

When the oven is hot, add the olive oil and then the potatoes and stir to coat the potatoes with the oil.

Roast for 30 to 40 minutes. Shake the pan every 10 minutes.

Serve immediately.
