I don’t normally eat a very large or special lunch, but every once in awhile, I crave something extra delicious. One of my favorite dishes to cook when I have a bit of extra time and am home for lunch is fried potatoes. Although they sound terribly unhealthy, they aren’t really that bad (they are unhealthy, but not terribly so). Also, as a side note, most people probably wouldn’t consider them a meal on their own, but I personally love to eat them as my main dish.
This is a very simple recipe. All you need is a couple of potatoes (any type will work), kosher salt, extra virgin olive oil, black pepper, and regular salt. You can either use fresh potatoes or ones that have been cooked (such as leftover baked potatoes).
Start by slicing the potato to create about 1/4″ wide round slices, like so:
Toss them around with the oil, then sprinkle with a good amount of kosher salt. Mix that around, then add some regular salt and pepper.
I hope you love these as much as I do! Enjoy!
