These were very good. The potatoes are very fluffy inside. I did cut down on the amount of olive oil used, as it would have made this inexpensive recipe a lot more expensive and I didn't feel that it was necessary. Thanks for the recipe

This patatas bravas recipe is excellent. Very authentic! I reduce both the amount of salt the potatoes are fried in and the amount of oil a little though.
