Being from the southern US, I grew up eating home fries almost every morning, and I still like to make them on weekends topped with an egg for an easy hash. I actually have a scar on my left hand from a grease fire caused by getting the oil too hot whilst making home fries for a class breakfast at 15; I’ve gotten a little better since then. I still have an aversion to frying, and now I put them in the oven. It also helps to use less oil and makes them a little less calorie-heavy.
So: less scarring and healthier. Everybody wins.
Jan & Robins are simply yummy things to look at.
Just in case you aren’t familiar with how to make home fries there is a recipe after the break.
What You’ll Need:
- Potatoes – 3 large, diced
- Oregano – 1 tbsp, dried
- Olive oil
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Add diced potatoes, salt, pepper, a drizzle of olive oil to an oven ready pan. Use a spoon to toss the potatoes so they’re lightly coated with olive oil and the seasonings are evenly distributed
- Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes, or until potatoes are tender all the way through
