Welcome to the Yourcounty sauteed potato recipes. A great alternative to roast, boiled or mashed potatoes, if they are cooked nicely they are really delicious and can accompany a wide range of dishes. My own favorite version finishes the potatoes off in the oven. The potatoes are boiled together but they are fried off in batches, I keep the batches warm in the oven, this obviously crisps them us which is the desired effect.
As each batch is fried off it is added to an over proof dish and keep on the bottom shelf of the oven on a medium heat. When the last batch is ready transfer them to the oven-proof dish put on a high heat setting for 10 minutes. This is the Sevenoaks sauteed potato recipe and you'll find it used widely in the area although traditionally you wouldn't finish the potatoes off in the oven. In Provence dripping is normally used to fry the potatoes but in the health conscious UK we use olive oil. There is a Christmas sauteed potato recipe using Belle de Fontenay potatoes, goose fat and cranberry sauce which is a great finishing touch to a Christmas dinner, all the successful recipes are stored in the Recipe Directory.

Your Comments Do Matter
"Many thanks for the excellent recipes, I think you should stress more the importance of the type of potatoes you use for all the potato dishes. Understandable if you are on a budget thats one issue but the quality of the potatoes does matter and the kind of potatoes can have a massive inpact on end results. If you've never used Maris Perers for roast potatoes try them and you'll see what I mean. Wanted to ask what does Buster think about using new potatoes in his Sautéed Potato Recipe?"
