>>7258915 I put a little olive oil in a bowl with dried herbs and spices I like. Then I cut the potatoes into wedges and toss with the oil and spice mixture. Lastly, I place the potatoes evenly on a tray with some foil and roast at 400 for 45 minutes or so until they're crispy like i like them.
Protip: Leave the skin on. It's delicious and good for you.
Waxy potatoes like reds or yellows I cook a few different ways. One is to cover them in olive oil, season with some salt, pepper, fresh thyme and rosemary, then bake them in the oven until the tops begin to perforate. The other is a pan fry while basting it with butter, again with salt, pepper, thyme and rosemary. They come out a little more crisp than baking but lose some of that creaminess in the process. The third is just a simple steam in a soup pot with a colander, lightly season when done.
Starchy potatoes like russet and white I like to make hassleback or mashed. Hassleback is pretty self explanatory, you can only make it so many ways. With mashed I like to use a a little chicken stock and ricotta to get them nice and creamy and garnish with some fresh chives. Sometimes I'll heat some whole garlic cloves in a pan al dente then take it out when they're mailable and make a paste, just toss that in there when mashing them all up for some garlic potatoes.
The reds and yellows are fairly small in size when I choose to pan fry. For one potato, I'll cut it in half, then cut that in half again, and make two more cuts going the opposite direction. Basically, we're looking to get 12 cubes from 1 potato. Or about the size in pic related. Adjust your cube size to how large your potato is. Cook time is 8-10 minutes on medium-high heat, just remember to keep basting with butter so they cook evenly.
That looks like more oil then I'd care to ingest so I think I'm gonna try boiling them to cook them like I normally do and then throwing them in the pan to soak up the little oil left after cooking the meat just to get a crispy skin on the potatoes. I suspect that water in the pre-boiled potatoes will make the oil spit everywhere and probably burn my house down but fuck it. I won't know 'till I try.
