WELP, no one knows a dang thing about where Hurricane Florence will go, but nowwwww they’re saying the storm might end up over us at some point. This means…well, who knows. We’re pretty far inland, so even major storms coming our way have a good amount of time to slow down once they hit the coast. We get some wind and lots of rain and the occasional short-lived power outage, but overall nothing catastrophic in several years from a hurricane.
BUT STILL. We absolutely should reward our bravery for making it through this storm with fried potatoes to go with our fried chicken, right? Because hunkering down means nothing if it isn’t calorie laden, especially if you’re pregnant and mostly sober. Give me my calories in other ways. For the baby!
Even if you don’t use carbs as rewards for getting through tough events, you could just…make these because they are delicious. The method was inspired by Molly Yeh’s new Food Network show (which I love! have watched every episode! can’t wait for more!), and is nice and simple for a weeknight dinner or breakfast/brunch situation, which we definitely need more of as the days get slightly cooler. The potatoes are boiled and then roasted with tons of spices, and the boiling can definitely be done in advance. Then, before eating, roast the potatoes and done! Crispy, buttery potatoes with tons of flavor that go well with just about anything.
