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?

A sweet and salty twist on the classic baked potato- add this delicious combination which pairs perfectly with all kinds of meals!
Servings: 4

Ingredients  

  • 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

Instructions 

  • 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.

Notes

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.

  1. This is great! The last crazy thing I tried with potatoes was melted peanut butter and jelly. No joke it was a party in my mouth! I love the sweet/savory kind of thing. I always pair my sweet potatoes with a salty dip or sauce as well. Perfect pairings!

    1. Wow, potatoes with peanut butter and jelly sounds delicious! I wish I liked sweet potatoes more.

  2. YUM!!! Chris said something the other day about having friends over next weekend and grilling steaks – pretty sure these potatoes will go perfectly!!!

  3. I have been sitting here for 5 minutes trying to figure out what I’m missing…why would you coat he pan with oil and flour and then coat the potatoes. I make several kinds of potatoes in the oven…then it hit me! So that they don’t stick! For the same reason that I lay parchment paper in the pan! Genius!!! I’ve never heard of this! Parchment lends itself to better clean up, but I only have it for about half the time….I’m gonna try this out today! Amazing! I can’t wait to try the recipe!

    1. YES! Haha, Melissa, it took me several tries to come to that realisation!

      Hope you enjoy the recipe 🙂

    1. Cheers, Meg! I must admit, whenever I check out your instagram, I feel like slapping something. That’s pretty genius. 😉

  4. I am also crazy about potatoes, and love discovering new ways to serve up my treat, so thank you so much for sharing this, I’m just drooling over the pictures!

  5. They look perfect! I seriously must have them this evening – I am that in love with the look of that crispy coating. Thanks so much for linking up with #recipeoftheweek. I’ve pinned this post to my food board and a tweet will go out later 🙂

    1. Thank you Emily- I was inspired by (ironically) eating a yorkshire pudding in London lol!

  6. Wow they look lovely! A great invention that I am sure my kids would love! We are potato fans here too…you can’t beat a good spud!! 😉
