Fingerling Homefries

Fingerling potatoes are a great thing. They have such great potato taste. I try to substitute them for “regular” potatoes whenever I can just to get that extra potato punch. This time I decided to make homefries (that I usually make with russets) with fingerling potatoes instead and boy was I ever happy with the difference!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Bring a medium pot of well-salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook until they are just fork-tender. Drain and allow the potatoes to cool.
  • Smash potatoes flat with the palm of your hand or the bottom of a small bowl.
  • Add oil to a large saute pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add onions. Season with salt and add a pinch or two of red pepper flakes. Saute 7-8 minutes or until the onions are just starting to soften.
  • Add the potatoes to the pan, toss with the onions, and flatten them out to cover the bottom of the pan.
  • Let the potatoes cook for a few minutes then flip and again flatten out. Repeat this process until the potatoes get a bit of a crust on them and begin to turn golden brown.
  • Serve garnished with parsley.
