I was real proud of the home fries I prepared for breakfast this morning. Thumbs up all around the table.
Prep: Sliced the potatoes in half, then 1/2″ slices. Arranged them on a plate, covered with wet paper towels and microwaved for 5 minutes.
Used a cast iron skillet to fry bacon and sausage patties. Bacon was lean so there was not a great amount of fat. Added a 1/3 stick of butter to the bacon fat, then added the potatoes. Fried them till they were good and crispy, then added a good splash of red wine vinegar(Thanks LeeTheBard)and let them reduce in the liquid. The flavor was fantastic.
I had always microwaved the potatoes first and then sliced. But most times they crumble and fall apart. Slicing before microwaving worked out much better.
