Potato Swirls: The Light And Crunchy Side Sish

Potato swirls, also known as potato tornadoes or tornado fries, are a popular and visually appealing snack made from spiral-cut potatoes. They are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, perfect for munching on. Here's a recipe to make potato swirls:


  • 4 medium-sized potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional seasonings: garlic powder, paprika, dried herbs, or any other preferred spices


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
  2. Wash the potatoes thoroughly and pat them dry with a kitchen towel.
  3. Using a spiralizer or a sharp knife, carefully cut the potatoes into long, thin spiral strips. If using a knife, try to cut the strips as evenly as possible for consistent cooking.
  4. Place the potato spirals in a large bowl and drizzle them with olive oil. Toss gently to coat the spirals evenly with oil.
  5. Season the potato spirals with salt, pepper, and any optional seasonings or spices according to your taste preferences. Toss again to distribute the seasonings.
  6. Carefully transfer the seasoned potato spirals onto the prepared baking sheet, arranging them in a single layer.
  7. Bake the potato swirls in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until they turn golden brown and crispy. Flip them halfway through the cooking time to ensure even browning.
  8. Once baked, remove the potato swirls from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes.
  9. Serve the potato swirls hot as a snack or side dish. You can enjoy them as is or serve them with ketchup, aioli, or your favorite dipping sauce.

Potato swirls are a fun and delicious snack that can be enjoyed on their own or as a unique addition to a meal. They are great for parties, game nights, or whenever you want a tasty and visually appealing treat.
