      Bravo! We now have the PERFECT cottage fries recipe thanks to you. I used three potatoes, and didn't add any additional butter or oil,may use even a little less next time. I seasoned lightly with salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, dried minced onion and some Penzy's pasta sprinkle.I microwaved for 4 mins., stirred and microwaved for 4 mins. again before browning. I received the highest praises from Hubby who loves fried potatoes. They browned up perfectly and were light and fluffy inside. Thanks so much for sharing this keeper recipe!

      We like potatoes without peelings. I allow the potatoes to cool, then peel, slice, and brown in butter in a skillet. I usually season with salt, pepper, or some seasoned salt. Even a little cayenne is good sprinkled on while frying. Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe that I have used for years.
