I found this recipe on the blog Spoon Fork Bacon!
It combines one of my favorite foods EVER (potatoes) with some ingredients that I do not use that often. I was nervous before starting because I didn’t want to ruin one of the only foods I do like by getting all fancy, but you will never know unless you try!
- 3 medium russet potatoes, cleaned and sliced (about 1/4” thick)
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 tablespoon minced thyme
- 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
- 1 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoons onion powder
- 2 teaspoons dry mustard
- 2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1. Fill a large, deep skillet with 1 1/2 to 2 inches of oil and preheat to 350˚F.
2. Place potatoes, buttermilk, thyme, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper into a mixing bowl and toss together until well combined. Allow mixture to sit for 15 minutes.
3. Place flour, onion powder, mustard, paprika, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper into a shallow dish and stir together.
4. Remove potatoes from buttermilk and dredge in flour mixture.
5. Shake of excess flour and fry potatoes in batches for 6 to 8 minutes or until golden brown and potatoes have cooked through.
6. Drain onto a paper towel and season with salt and pepper.
This recipe turned out amazing!! The potatoes were crispy, flavorful, and nowhere near as difficult to make as I imagined they would be!
