Diner-Style Home Fries
Why This Recipe Works
When developing our home fries recipe, we discovered that Yukon Gold potatoes make terrific fries when sautéed in a heavy skillet. Browning and crisping the potatoes, we learned, meant letting them sit undisturbed in hot fat. We found that we had to let them sit for a full four to five minutes before the first turn. A total of three or four more turns over another 10 to 15 minutes gave us the delectably golden-brown nuggets we wanted for our home fries recipe.
