Easier, Tastier Fried Potatoes

The first time I made these easy fried potatoes, they never even made it onto our plates. We literally ate them all off the serving plate while the rest of dinner was finishing up. They were so good! I have since made fried sweet potatoes this way, too!

I have been meaning to post this recipe for a while now, but I needed to track down the original source (Andrea Dekker), who helped me learn how to make the absolutely perfect fried potatoes. She covers this all, more or less, so I can take very little credit.

Easier, Tastier Fried Potatoes


  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes


  • Potatoes
  • Oil
  • Salt & other seasonings


  1. Wash potatoes and allow to dry. Peel, if desired, also.
  2. Chop/dice potatoes. DO NOT SLICE.
  3. Combine potatoes with salt, pepper, and other desired seasonings in a bowl.
  4. In a skillet, heat at least an inch of oil. OIL SHOULD BE HOT BEFORE ADDING POTATOES!
  5. While oil is heating, microwave potatoes for 3 minutes. This will help you get the soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside.
  6. Pour potatoes in hot oil. Be careful. Cover with lid and cook on med/high heat for several minutes.
  7. Stir potatoes infrequently, but don't allow to burn.
  8. When all are browned, place them on a plate with towels or paper towels to absorb excess oil. Serve and enjoy!
