  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large resealable bag, combine the brown sugar, seasoned salt and whole wheat flour. Add potatoes to the bag, in batches if necessary, seal and shake to coat. Place the coated potato cubes on a greased baking sheet.
  3. Adjust the oven rack to the lowest position. Bake for 40 minutes in the preheated oven. Stir occasionally. Turn the oven to the broil setting, and broil for an additional 15 minutes or so, with the potatoes still in the low position, until the potatoes are tender and browned.

I just made these for dinner and we all loved them. I didn't use any oil though or stir them either. I lined the baking sheet with foil. I'll try some of the other ideas about adding other seasonings too. This can be varied in many ways to nicely complement the main course.


Easy to follow and turned out great. I used all purpose flour since I didn't have wheat on hand.


I halved the recipe, but it seemed like there was way too much of the sugar/salt/flour mixture for the amount of potatoes. Also, I used german butter potatoes, and they cook faster. This isn't the fault of the recipe's, but I'm glad I checked on them because they were burning halfway through the broiling. They probably would have been good just after the 40 minutes at 350. Before they started to burn, they smelled really really good, and actually they weren't too bad as they turned out. I'm sure I will make them again, and hopefully this time I'll be better able to taste the sugar. However, I will reduce the amount of mixture I shake the potatoes around in.
