The Fried Potato Rounds

I don’t fry many food items on my recipe blog, and I DO have a baked fries recipe on here, however, these are a favorite among the little ones, because they are not potato chips, yet they are a perfect snack and you are sure to know that your child is getting their vegetable for the day, because they usually come back for thirds and fourths. I personally leave the skin on my potatoes when I fry, or bake them, that way you are getting more of the vitamins, however, you can remove the skin if you wish. This recipe is not for a specific amount of servings, it is just to show you how to make this dish, and you can alter the recipe as needed. I use 1 medium potato per person. Here we go……

1 medium potato, per person, washed dried, sliced into 1/4 inch rounds, with skin on (you can peel it if you wish)

extra virgin olive oil, (or you can use vegetable oil if you are fasting) just enough to wet the bottom of your non stick pan

sea salt

ground black pepper (optional) 

ketchup (optional)

non stick cooking pan

nylon tongs (or any other tongs that will not scratch your non stick pan)

plate lined with paper towels or napkins (try to use a good, thick quality napkin to soak up the oil when you tak them out of the pan, otherwise, the very thin paper towel or napkin may stick to your potato)

Heat your pan with oil for about 5 minutes, watching that is does not burn. Add potato slices in single layers. Sprinkle with a little sea salt and pepper (one side only). Cook for about 6 minutes, then flip over and cook for another 3 minutes. Use your judgement on when to take them out. We are looking for a beautiful, crispy, brown looking, toasty color, on both sides. I, personally, flip them a couple of times until a beautiful crispy texture is achieved.  Remove from pan and place onto paper lined plate. Continue cooking your potatoes until they are all done, adding a little more oil, if needed. That is it !!! Enjoy with ketchup, or as is. Please feel free to share recipe blog with your family and friends, and like it on Facebook. Thank you. 🙂
