Great recipe! I followed the recipe exactly and they were the best. I did keep the peel on since I don't mind it and they were still delicious. Thanks!

Excellent home fries. I did add a little butter to the oil for the flavor. Thanks for the method!

Everything about this recipe is perfect - the seasonings, the timings, the techniques, crisp/tender ratio and flavor.. they didn't stick and turn into mush like I usually get when I try to do home fries, so kudos on the cooking technique. Leaving them alone made all the difference! These rival the best from the best diners and will be the only home fries recipe I use from now on.. thanks!
