Kettle Corn Baked and Grilled Potatoes- Baked not fried, the humble potato gets a delicious (and healthy!) makeover for a flavour lovers dream!

I professed my love for potatoes before.

I professed my love for potatoes by eating a kilo of them in a day.

I professed my love for potatoes by eating 7 kilos in 7 days.

I also recently professed my love for kettle corn by combining them in these no bake Kettle Corn Granola Bars.


After the wholeArman challenge, several readers asked whether I was sick of potatoes. That, my friends, would never happen. Potatoes are the one vegetable you will always find in my pantry. Similar to eggs, when there are less than 4 left, it may or may not result in borderline emergency status.

Australia prides itself on it’s variety of ‘white’ potatoes it has available- I’m not choosy. As long as it’s not sweet or not low carb potatoes (Seriously. Remember that post?) I’m a happy camper!

My go to method of potatoes at night is basic- coat them in garlic olive oil, salt and pepper and chuck in the oven. During food prep, I usually would make a cold version usually in the form of a salad like this one. However, it was time to try and embrace the sweet and salty flavour combination I love- and who says it can’t be used with actual baked potatoes as opposed to potato chips or popcorn? I mentioned on Monday last week of a potato recipe I served up at brunch and here is numero uno!


With a short ingredient list and barely any prep required- impress your friends like I did with the most delicious twist on the humble potato- I’ve had them for dinner, served them for breakfast with eggs and even found a way to merge the two- more on that to come! Do yourselves a favour and give your potatoes this makeover.

It’s a party of the senses- sweet, salty, savoury, sexy.

Wait, what?

  • 1 kg potatoes chopped into wedges
  • 2 tablespoon gluten free flour separated (Sub coconut flour for paleo)*
  • ¼ cup coconut oil separated
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon coconut palm sugar (
  • 1 teaspoon mixed herbs optional


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Cook the potatoes in the microwave or in a pot of boiling water until firm yet tender. Set aside.
  • Coat a large, deep baking pan with 2 tablespoons of the coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of the gluten free flour and rub pan to ensure it is evenly covered.
  • In a large bowl, add the potatoes with the remaining flour and oil and stir to combine. Add the salt, smoked paprika and sugar and rub into the potatoes until fully incorporated.Add the seasoned potatoes to the baking dish and roughly shake it up to cover evenly.
  • Bake in the oven for 40 minutes, turning halfway through. Serve immediately.


I used this particular gluten free flour blend because one of the flours in it lends itself to a sweeter flavour- thus reducing the amount of sugar needed.
For optimum crispy potatoes, serve potatoes the same day as baked. You can make them ahead of time, but ensure you reheat them in the oven.
Leftover potatoes work really well in this salad.

Are you picky with your potatoes?

  1. I always have eggs and quark in the fridge, and ginger, lemon and a variety of nuts in the pantry. I think my parents would love this recipe, they love potatoes (like real Germans do, right? Haha)

    1. Haha, if your parents didn’t like potatoes well….there may be something wrong with the world haha!

      By the way loved the fake potato recipe you tagged me in! I’ll need to try it!

    1. Those are epic staples to have. Even the carrots. You never know when the crunch factor comes into play.


    you know i have a ridiculous obsession with sweet and salty.. and my new found appreciation for roasted (white) potatoes is blossoming..

    aka this could not come at a better time and i’m slightly concerned of the kilos that may be consumed in my future. YOU’RE A GENIUS. literally have never heard of anything like thiiiiisssss AHHH <333 and yes food should always be referred to as sexy. i want to write risque novels about it and sell it for big bucks. wait i just gave my idea away =l

    1. YES!!!! Get rid of those sweet ones. I cross my fingers to see your instagram featuring these spuds…because you know, being in insta-idol.

  3. Back when I used to make my own fries it never occurred to me that I could batter them with even more flour…haha!

  4. Ooooooo! I don’t know why we don’t get potatoes more often because they’re so dang versatile and now I know I have an arsenal of recipes for them thanks to you.
    Eggs, spinach, yogurt, milk, nut butter, oats and bananas always need to be stocked. Basically, I just need to be able to make overnight oats.

    1. FIX IT. Potatoes > Sweet potatoes.

      Saying that- potatoes are totally not an Asian thing- especially on my dad’s side. Let’s change that movement.

  5. Wow….okay weirdest idea I’ve seen in a while but somehow really tempting…plus I love both of those foods. Perfect cold treat though I rarely make potatoes

    As for stuff in my pantry/fridge regularly….kabocha, various veggies for steaming, hot sauces, diet coke, Arctic Zero “ice cream” and specific spices that I use on everything!

    1. Try these potatoes- promise you will love them!

      Wow arctic zero? I remember seeing them when I was in America and it was like $7 a pint!

  6. Haha I feel you about potatoes- I am just the same about eggs & nut butter. When I’m running low, I start to get palpitations about upping my stash! As someone nowhere near being a potato connoisseur, I wouldn’t say I’m picky- I’ll take it all…although lately I’ve started to prefer white potatoes over sweet potatoes!

    1. I’m stoked to hear white potatoes are making it back on the radar- sweet potatoes are overrated!

  7. Omg, yummm. These sound ridiculously amazing. I am a sweet potato fan, so I may even whip up some sweet taters with this recipe!! And dipped in guacamole? Yes please.

    1. Dude. Last week’s dinner- leftover potatoes + melted cheese + guac + salsa. Poor man’s nachos.

  8. You to potatoes as I am with diners. I always have eggs and milk in the fridge…oh and coffee creamer too. 😉

  9. Three foods I always have on hand: broccoli, peanut butter and eggs. I actually never realized the broccoli thing until just now…

    I don’t eat potatoes very often but I’m intrigued by these! I like eating cold roasted potatoes over salad, so I might have to give that a try with this recipe.

  10. Eggs and almond butter in the pantry – grapes and butter in the fridge – sweets pots only for me please! 🙂

    1. Oh butter..I’ve been bringing mini tubs to work to have on my English Muffins. So good.

  11. These potatoes are sexy. And I’m totally digging the new black table along with the blue towel.

    I love the idea of making potatoes sweet and salty. You are a genius. These are going on the list for sure. Right after I make those epic rice krispies.

    Food always in my fridge or pantry: oats (so I can make granola), almond milk (hello I need it for my coffee), and bananas (no explanation necessary).

    1. Any potato is sexy. These are just damn sexier.

      We need to write a joint food blog where we make recipes dedicated for one another and ones where we solely make one another recipes.

      Oh wait, that’s real life.

  12. Oh yummy. These look so pretty!!
    Arman. I can NOT answer your questions without laughing out loud like a mad woman. Why is it that the chicken and the eggs ALWAYS are the right answer?!
