To this day, one of my favorite comfort foods is fried potatoes and onions. I make it far too frequently because it is one of my favorites. The potatoes’ melt-in-your-mouth tenderness and crispy golden brown exterior, which are bursting with amazing tastes, are irresistible to me.
Every bite was so deliciously buttery and garlicky—how could I forget that? Haha! So deliciously fantastic! It also gets much better because of the caramelized onions’ delicate sweetness and spiciness.
Ingredients fir fried potatoes and onion
- ¼ tablespoon olive oil,
- ½ tablespoon butter,
- ¼ pound thinly sliced potatoes,
- ¼ teaspoon each of salt, black pepper, and Creole seasoning (optional)
- ½ teaspoon of minced garlic,
- ½ teaspoon of parsley for decoration.
Guidelines for fried potatoes and onion
- In a heavy skillet or cast-iron pan, melt the butter and olive oil over medium-high heat.
- After that, add the potato slices to the pan.
- Season your potatoes liberally with Creole seasoning, salt, and pepper. After two or three minutes, flip it over and let it crust.
- Add the garlic and onions.
- For about 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are done to your liking, keep turning them over gently until the potatoes have a uniform golden coating and the onions have caramelized.
Advice & Notes:
- To ensure a good crisp exterior, soak your potatoes in water for at least 20 minutes. This will help reduce the amount of starch in the potatoes.
- To prevent oil from spattering, blot dry the potatoes before frying.
- Potatoes that are packed too tightly in the pan may become mushy and soggy.
- Verify that there is enough heat in the pan. To get crispy potatoes with a soft and fluffy middle, uncover the pan five minutes before the cooking process is done.
