Fried Red Potatoes

We had a family party yesterday, and I served fried red potatoes. Everyone loved them so much, I decided I better write down the recipe in case the kids want to make this again. Red potatoes are the best for this recipe because they have a creamy texture which is great with the crunchy outside layer. I also use a different amount of potatoes each time, depending on the amount of people. Choose at least one potato per person, and add one or two more per 4 people.

5 red potatoes
4 tbsp (plus) canola oil

Start by washing the red potatoes and scrubbing to make sure they are clean. Poke them with a knife all over (otherwise they will explode) and microwave all of them together for 8 – 10 minutes, turning them after 5 minutes. Carefully pull them out of the microwave using a towel so as to not burn your hands. Once they are cool enough to touch, cut into bite side pieces.

Heat oil in a cast iron pan, and carefully add one layer of potatoes to the pan. Do not over crowd the pan. Fry until crispy and turn over to crisp the other side. About 5 minutes per side. Salt and place in a serving dish. Fry the second batch of potatoes. Enjoy!
