I have been trying to make good fried potatoes for a while now with little success. Does anyone have a good recipe? What I am trying to make is the skillet type that are often served with a lot of breakfast dishes at restaurants. Not hashbrowns but cubed fried, crispy potatoes. - ST in UT
Start with cooked, cold potatoes. It's easiest to bake a bunch the night before along with dinner. (Doesn't waste extra energy). Add some oil to a pan, saute some onions and then to the hot oil and onions, add cubed potatoes. You can add peppers, too. Fresh rosemary from your herb garden is good. Saute, turning only as needed with a spatula. Turning too often creates mush.
Fry cubed potatoes in olive oil until half done, add diced leek, salt, pepper, and for more spice, blackened seasoning. Cover and cook until done, turning from time to time.
You might try sprinkling some flour on the potatoes before you cook them. This makes them more crunchy.
Never thought of putting flour on them. That is a good idea. One thing I do is a sprinkle a little paprika on them for color. That seems to help crispify.
