How to Make Home Fries


A classic with a nice plate of scrambled eggs, home fries satisfy that morning empty feeling - in a big way. Serves four (or one extremely hoggish hungry person).

Things You'll Need

  • 3 lbs. potatoes
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Groceries
  • Large Pots
  • Skillets
  • Cook potatoes in a large saucepan of boiling, salted water for 12 minutes, or until just tender.

  • Drain potatoes and cool.

  • Melt 2 tbsp. butter and oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add potatoes and saute until golden, turning occasionally, about 18 minutes. While cooking, add another tablespoon of butter at the nine-minute mark.

  • Serve warm, perhaps with ketchup or Tabasco.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can make the potatoes through Step 2 a day ahead of time. Simply cover the drained and cooled potatoes and chill until you need them.
  • You can also add chopped sautéed onion, bell pepper, or even mushrooms to your home fries.
  • Yukon Gold potatoes have a nice buttery flesh, and they won't fall apart as bakers (Russets) tend to.
