How to cook sautéed potatoes

  1. First, wash the potatoes well under running water. If you use an organic product you can keep the peel, otherwise I recommend you remove it with a potato peeler.
  2. Now divide your potatoes in half lengthwise, then into four and finally into wedges .
  3. Now take a pan, pour in a drizzle of oil, the garlic removed from the shirt and the chopped aromatic herbs. Brown the garlic for a few minutes then toss the potatoes, salt and pepper and let them brown for a few minutes.
  4. At this point, add 1 glass of water and close the pan with the lid. Cook over medium-low heat for about 15-20 minutes .
  5. After this time, remove the lid and, if the potatoes are soft, raise the heat and toast the potatoes well for at least another 4-5 minutes. If, on the other hand, they are still hard, add a little water and close the lid again for a few minutes.

If you like, you can prepare a richer and tastier version simply by adding onion. To make this recipe a second dish, I recommend accompanying them with a simple fried egg or sausage.

Pan-fried sandy potatoes

Potatoes with pan-fried breadcrumbs are very popular with everyone, because they give that extra something to the dish.

The preparation is very simple : boil the potatoes or cook them directly in the pan, and after they have made the crust, insert the breadcrumbs, which will stick to the surface creating a delicious crust. Be careful not to burn it, so check the times and level of the flame!


We recommend keeping the crispy potatoes in a pan for a maximum of 2 days in the fridge , well covered with cling film.
