Let’s be honest, you can never have enough potato side dishes in your repertoire! I grew up with crispy fried potato slices, at school and at home, and they are a classic because they are so easy and work with so many main dishes.

They have super fluffy middles and the outsides are wonderfully crispy. They are a true family favorite for us and I’m sure they will be for you too soon! They are a great weeknight alternative to roast potatoes as they have a much shorter cooking time.

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • Start cooking the potatoes in cold water. If you put them in boiling water they won’t cook evenly through.
  • Take care not to overcook the potatoes or they will easily fall apart. They should be just fork tender.
  • Get the oil nice and hot before frying and adjust the temperature as needed so that they don’t burn or take to long to brown.
  • Don’t overcrowd the pan when frying the slices. This will cause the temperature of the oil to drop. Do 4 or 5 at a time.
