Steps

Making Baked Potato Spirals

  1. Preheat your oven to 390°F (200°C).
  2. Soak and oil the bamboo skewers.Soak four bamboo skewers in water for 40 to 60 minutes. This will keep them from burning in the oven. Once they are soaked, take them out, pat them dry, and rub some cooking oil onto them. This will make it easier to form the potato spirals.
  3. Cut and skewer the potatoes.Cut one of the narrow ends off of a potato. Place it cut-side-down onto the cutting board. Push a skewer down through the other narrow end. Slide the potato onto the center of the skewer when you are done.
    • Repeat this step for the other skewers and potatoes.
  4. Cut the potatoes around the skewer.Set the skewered potato down in front of you, oriented horizontally. Cut straight down into the right end of the potato; make sure that the tip of the knife is angled to the left. Start turning the skewer towards you as you cut the potato in a spiral.
  5. Gently stretch the potatoes.Wrap your hand around the right end of the potato. Gently pull your hand across the potato towards the other end. You may have to do this a few times until you get the trademark corkscrew shape.
  6. Set the skewered potatoes onto a deep baking dish.The dish needs to be narrow enough so that you can set the skewers over the edges. It also needs to be deep enough so that the potatoes don't touch the bottom.
    • If you don't have such a baking dish, you can try setting the potatoes down onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper instead.
  7. Prepare the seasoning.Melt the butter in the microwave or in a little saucepan over the stove. Pour it into a small mixing bowl, then stir in the garlic, Italian season, salt, and pepper.You can do this with a fork or mini whisk.
  8. Brush the seasoned butter onto the potatoes.You can do this with a basting brush or a pastry brush. If you don't have either of those, you can carefully pour the butter over the potatoes instead. Be sure to rotate the potatoes so that they get evenly coated.
  9. Bake the potato spirals for 30 to 40 minutes.After about 15 to 20 minutes, rotate the potatoes by turning the skewers. This will allow them to cook evenly on both sides. They are ready when they are cooked through and have crispy edges.
  10. Allow the potatoes to cool slightly before serving them.After about 5 minutes, they are ready to eat.You can serve them as they are, or you can garnish them with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.

Making Fried Potato Spirals

  1. Prepare the potatoes.Clean and peel the potatoes first, then cut them into cubes. You need enough potatoes to fill 1⅔ (375 grams).
  2. Cook the potatoes until they turn soft.Place the potatoes into a pot and cover them with 1 to 2 inches (2.54 to 5.08 centimeters) of cold water. Add some salt, if desired, then bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat. Once the water starts to boil, reduce it to a simmer. Let the potatoes cook, uncovered, until they are tender.
    • Check the potatoes every 5 minutes. They should be done in 10 to 20 minutes.
  3. Drain the potatoes.Once the potatoes are cooked through, take them off the stove. Place a colander in the sink, then pour the potatoes into it. Shake the colander gently to remove any excess water, then place the potatoes back into the pot.
  4. Mash the potatoes.You can do this with a potato masher or with a fork. Keep mashing the potatoes until they are smooth. And lumps or clumps will end up clogging your piping bag.
  5. Add the egg, potato starch, milk, salt, and pepper.For extra flavor, add in some Parmesan cheese. Mix everything together with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until evenly combined.
  6. Transfer the mashed potatoes into a piping bag.Place a piping bag into a cup and fold down the top over the edge of the glass. Use a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to scoop the mashed potato mixture into the bag. Tie off the top and snip off the bottom of the bag.
    • If you want to, you can fit the piping bag with a large, round tip.
    • No piping bag? No problem. Fill a plastic bag with the potato mixture, tie off the end, then snip off the bottom corner.
  7. Heat your cooking oil.Fill a large skillet about 1inch (2.54 centimeters) deep with oil. Turn on the stove to medium-high heat. Allow the oil to heat up to to 375°F (191°C).
  8. Squeeze the mashed potato mixture into the oil.Move the piping bag from center-out to create a tight spiral shape. Try to keep the spiral as flat as you can. The spiral will unravel slightly as they cook to form a looser spiral. You should be able to fit at least three spirals in your skillet.
  9. Cook the spirals until they turn a golden brown color.This should take about 2½ to 3 minutes.Once they turn golden, flip them over with a spatula, and cook them for a few more seconds.
  10. Drain the potato spirals.Use a spatula to transfer the spirals from the skillet to a paper towel. As they drain, you can make more spirals.
  11. Serve the spirals.You can serve them as they are, or you can garnish them further with salt and/or dried herbs. Eat them on their own, or serve them alongside your favorite fry dip, such as ketchup or mustard.

Quick Summary

Before making potato spirals, preheat your oven to 390 degrees F, and soak the bamboo skewers in water for 40 to 60 minutes. Next, cut the narrow ends off the potatoes and pierce them with the skewers. Then, set each potato down on your work surface, and use the skewer to turn it towards you as you cut the potato in a spiral. Once the potatoes are cut, pull them apart gently with your hands to achieve the classic corkscrew shape. Finally, place the potatoes in a baking dish, brush them with melted butter and seasonings, and bake for 30 to 40 minutes.

Did this summary help you?
  • You can slide the skewered potatoes off of the skewer before serving them as well.
  • You can also use your own spice mix for the baked potatoes, such as: salt, oregano, smoked paprika, black pepper, thyme, and some chili powder.
  • If you choose to deep fry the skewered potatoes, save the seasoning for last, after you drain them.
  • Consider deep-frying your potatoes instead at 350°F (177°C). It will take 5 to 6 minutes.
  • For extra-crispy deep-fried potatoes, fry them first, drain them, then deep fry them again for 2 more minutes.
  • Try it with yams and sweet potatoes! You will have to adjust the spices and seasonings, however.
