    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.

    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!

    Easy and fast just about says it. I enjoyed these with a bit of cumin, basil, oregano, thyme, garlic salt and pepper. Used a bit less oil and butter. BF enjoyed it too. Had it with a salad topped with cheese for a vegetarian dinner.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I'm just a girl whos passion is for cooking, well some people would call it an obbsession rather.... I am a college student at RIT going for food management and prep, my favortie things! Most of my orignal recipes are made from left overs since I cook for one or two most days so there are always left overs in my house. I play mad scientist most days in my kitchen with left over chicken breasts lol. I am also a health food freak and a major gym rat, so I am always on the look out for good subs for the more unhealthy ingredients in most recipes. Also I am just starting to take pictures of the food I make on this site, so my photos are anything but stellar yet so I will not be offended in any way if you chooses not to use my pictures. <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/goldsparkle.png" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <a href="http://s19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/?action=view¤t=tish2.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/tish2.jpg" border="0" alt="Recipezaar Challenge 2008"></a> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC11-Participant.jpg"> <a href="http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view¤t=newtaginethbanner.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/newtaginethbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/CV.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-11/484938/Spelling-Bee-stick2jpg.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj240/marienixon_715/kittencaljpg.jpg"> <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/ScrapBook.png" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/ApronSwap2007.jpg" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/RedWhiteBlue.jpg" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <img src="http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/KiwiDutch/3chefstag1.jpg"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif"> <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/28636/zwt3banner.jpg"> <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a209/tlonghorn/banners/BBQ2.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a> <img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/TasteofYellow.jpg> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Derfcookathon.jpg">
