Patatas Bravas

Patatas Bravas

 If you like potatoes or tomatoes, you will enjoy this simple dish.  One of my personal favourite ways of eating this is by sprinkling some grated cheddar cheese over the roasted potatoes and then dipping the potatoes in the sauce.  The cheddar cheese would have melted due to the heat and the potatoes will be  simply yummy! You can serve the sauce separately as a dip too.
