Home Fries

Photo: José Picayo; Styling: Michele Faro

Home Fries are the ultimate in comfort-food side dishes. They brown beautifully and have a rich flavor that both your grownup and kid frineds will love.Briefly microwaving the potatoes gives them a head start on cooking.  Quick tip - adding butter not only helps them brown better, but also lends rich flavor. Waxy potatoes won't break down in the pan when cubed and sautéed.
