Today, I have a quick tip for you. I'm planning on frying some potatoes tonight for supper to go with the sliced ham that I have. If you know me well, you know I do like to take short cuts in the kitchen when I can. One thing I don't like to do is have to stand over a skillet while frying something. I can't remember the last time I fried chicken for that very reason. I bake my chicken, which is what I am planning on for supper tomorrow night.
My short cut and tip of the day for you is the way I prepare my fried potatoes.
After I peel and sliced the potatoes, I put them on a platter and microwave them for about 4 minutes and then place them in a hot skillet for frying. The microwave cooks the potatoes until almost done. Add onions, salt and pepper into the skillet with the potatoes and fry them until they're done. I like them a little crispy on one side. By doing this, it cuts the frying time more than half and you can't tell the difference from potatoes that have been completely fried in a skillet.
