Twice Cooked Potatoes

Steam me up Scotty

Fingerling potatoes and other small potatoes have been going on sale a lot lately. So we’ve been buying them a lot. Here’s a simple way to make them extra crispy. Hope you like butter.

Twice Cooked Potatoes

  • 28 ounces small potatoes (about 4 cups)
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp parsley
  • sea salt/pepper

Scrub potatoes and parboil them until tender, about 10 minutes. Run under cold water until they can be handled. Slice each in half. In a large skillet, melt butter and oil over medium heat. Toss in potatoes and cook over medium heat until browned, about 12 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley, seat salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

    Barring the parsley, this is one of my favourite ways of recycling leftover baked potatoes too. Are there any BAD ways to prepare potatoes? πŸ™‚

    Such a nice dish and versatile too. I might even be tempted to add a little crispy fried pancetta to it, just for fun! And a poached egg for breakfast!

    That is exactly how hubby makes them, except that he goes for olive oil only – or sometimes a touch of butter with it. But of course, more butter makes it taste even better!

    love the photo!
