Attempting ingenuity. I had about a tablespoon or so of duck fat left over from making Duck Breast with Orange, Ginger and Balsamic Sauce and a half a potato from the night before.
1 TBSP duck fat
1/2 russet potato, scrubbed and diced
freshly ground pepper, to taste
Copping instructions from One Potato, Two Potato's recipe for Potatoes Fried in Goose Fat: Melt the fat in a skillet over medium heat. When it starts to shimmer, add potatoes. Cook for a couple minutes and add pepper. Reduce to medium-low, cover, and cook for about 10 minutes (shaking pan a couple times during cooking). Remove cover, increase heat to high and cook another minute or two until crisp and brown.
Notes: Homefries are not my forte. My sister does pretty well with them, but mine never quite come out right. These, though, were lovely. Tender and warm on this inside, crisp on the outside and very tasty.Posted by Jennifer at September 6, 2005 9:41 PM | TrackBack
