Crispy Fried Potatoes

Crispy fried potatoes whether in halves or in smaller pieces is Mr Redneck's specialty. The potatoes are very crispy on the outside but very soft on the inside. If fried at the correct high temperature, it should not be oily.

We usually have these potatoes with a western style meal of steak, lamb chops or with our rolled rib roast.

sprinkling of salt
oil for deep frying

1. Peel and cut potatoes in half.
2. Put potatoes into a pot of water, sprinkle in some salt and boil for about 10 minutes or until the outside becomes soft. Do not overcook.
3. Drain off the water. Put the lid back on the pot and give the potatoes a good shake to roughen the outside.
4. Deep fry the potatoes until golden.
5. Serve hot.

Tip : Try to buy the potato variety that are best suited for frying.
