Sweet Potato Home Fries
We eat at a local restaurant on occasion and for breakfast they serve fried potatoes; which consist of regular, sweet potato and purple potato. They are fairly good, but I knew we could do better and we did!
A trick I learned from my dad was to microwave the potatoes for 4-5 minutes, let them cool a bit, then cut them and fry them, takes less time and you don't end up cooking them for an hour and still have crunchy potatoes.
We used sweet potato and regular russets, and it is such a nice combination of sweet and savory, cooking them in bacon fat never hurts either!
1 large sweet potato, peeled
2 small russet potatoes, you can either peel or leave the skins on
2 tbl bacon fat or oil of your choice
1 tsp Emeril Essence
1/2 tsp Garlic Salt
Fresh cracked pepper
Peel and or/scrub your taters, place them on a plate and microwave for 5 minutes
Remove and let cool for a few minutes
Slice into cubes or slices, whatever you like
Cook until crispy, adding the Essence, Garlic Salt, and Pepper about half way thru cooking
