Michael’s Fried Potatoes


4 russet potatoes,  skins on $0.84
1 sweet potato, skin on $0.50
6 slices bacon, chopped $1.80
6 cloves garlic, smashed $0.06
12 – 14 fresh sage leaves, whole $1.75
1 cup chives, halved but kept in large pieces $0.30
Salt to taste $0.01
Freshly ground black pepper $0.01
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated $1.50
8 – 12 cups canola oil, for frying, plus one tablespoon  $11.00

Total Cost                   $17.77
Cost per Serving     $4.44

1.) In a large Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed large stock pan, heat oil to about 375 degrees Fahrenheit (on my electric stovetop I set the burner between 7 – 8.) At the same time, bring a separate large pot of salted water a rolling boil.

2.) In a separate skillet, heat one tablespoon canola oil over medium-high heat. When hot, add sliced bacon pieces and fry until nicely browned and crisp. When done, drain bacon on paper towel and set aside.

3.) Scrub the russet potatoes and the sweet potato, leaving skins on, and dry thoroughly. When the water is at a rolling boil drop the potatoes in whole and boil just until they are fork-tender. Then drain and cool slightly, enough so that you can break them apart with your hands.

4.) Once potatoes have cooled enough and oil is hot, break potatoes apart slightly with hands and drop gently into the oil. Fry for 3 – 4 minutes, until outside of potatoes are golden and skin is crisp. At the very end, drop in whole chives and fresh sage leaves and fry for 1 minute. As potatoes and herbs brown, remove from oil, sprinkle with salt, and place on paper towel to drain.

5.)  When all potatoes and herbs have cooked, pile them in the centre of a plate, sprinkle bacon around, and top with Parmesan cheese.

6.) Serve and enjoy!

    Hi Andrew! I haven’t heard of visitors having trouble with the site. I never use Explorer though, always Chrome. Of course, I can’t be sure what my visitors are using. As for the techie-stuff, I have a brilliant webmaster that looks after that for me. I just get to focus on cooking and writing – the two things I love most in the world!

    Hi job finder, there’s no translator on the site right now, but I believe Google Chrome has an automatic translator that should do the job for ya. Thanks for stopping by!
