My Fried Potatoes recipe I show you on this page. Many step by step photos accompany you while preparing.

You can use cooked or raw potatoes, raw potato slices must then first make a free float in the hot oil, only then these become cooked. The fried roast potatoes are my second choice at home. I don’t like the smell of the deep fryer. Many cooks put the cooked potato slices first in the deep fryer and then in the pan. This is faster and saves time.

Today I prepare the original fried potatoes in the pan. I deliberately added onions to this recipe, so the taste experience is round.
