Crispy, salty and too easy to eat! Cottage fries, also known as home-fried potatoes, are thinly sliced, crispy potatoes which are commonly fried with onions or green capsicums. In our cottage fries recipe, we use a handful of ingredient to make a flavourful snack or side dish the whole family will love.
1.Using a sharp knife, mandoline or V-slicer, slice potatoes into 2mm slices. Stand potato slices in a large bowl of cold water for 30 minutes to avoid discolouration. Drain; pat dry with absorbent paper.
2.Heat a third of the butter and a third of the oil in a large frying pan; cook a third of the potato and a third of the onion, stirring occasionally, until browned lightly and cooked through. Drain on absorbent paper; cover to keep warm. Repeat, making two more batches, with remaining butter, oil, potato and onion. Return cottage fries to pan; toss to combine, season with freshly cracked black pepper and sea salt, if desired.
