I often have spiral potatoes with steak which I BBQ. Sometimes they are referred to as tornado potatoes. I bake them, but they can be deep fried or air fried too. Give the recipe a try and let us know what you think.

[wpinsertshortcodead id="pgypi60b189d6e468e"]

  • 2 large baking potatoes (pick the long oval shape one)
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
  • parsley for garnish
  1. Insert a skewer into the center of potatoes. 

  2. Starting at one end, slice the potatoes with a sharp knife down to the skewer, while turning and working your way to the other end of the potato. Don't cut the skewer, however. You want the slices about 1/2 or 3/4 inches apart. 

  3. Spread or fan them out on the skewer so there is some distance between them. 

    If you are confused, please watch the video.
  4. Brush the entire potatoes with melted butter and season with salt, pepper, paprika,  and powdered parmesan cheese. 

  5. Place on a wire rack or baking tray lined with parchment paper.

  6. Place in a 350 degree F or 180 C preheated oven for about 60 minutes. 

  7. Garnish with parsley, serve, and enjoy your spiral baked potatoes.

I bake the spiral potatoes in the oven, but they can be air fried or microwaved as well. I put a simple coating of parmesan cheese, paprika, salt, and pepper on mine. Of course, you can use the spices of your choice.
