Craving a hearty breakfast and not feeling like grating potatoes, I decided to make the second best choice: home fries. I had never made them before and I must say this was an amazing first try! They tasted spot on.
I liked the idea of microwaving the potatoes first because otherwise they’d take too long to make. These potatoes have a great balance of tender in the center with the crispy outside every batch of home fries should have!
