PRO Tips For The Hungarian Home Fries Recipe
➡️ Potatoes are, without a doubt, a kind of vegetable preferred by many people. Therefore, potato recipes are numerous in all countries where this vegetable of American origin is grown and consumed. Among the favorite recipes with potatoes is fried potatoes.
➡️ Most of you know about French-style fries, which the Belgians seem to have actually invented. The controversy is still alive today and both countries claim the credit for inventing the French fries recipe that conquered the planet. I will not enter into this controversy because on this page I share a recipe for cottage fries or home fries, doesn’t matter how do you name them, from Hungary.
➡️ The country-style recipe involves cooking potatoes in 2 stages, namely first boiling them and then frying them in hot oil or lard. This technique is used because, by boiling them in their skins, the potatoes do not absorb much water during boiling, nor much oil during frying. In addition, on the outside, they have a golden and crunchy crust and on the inside, they are soft and fluffy.
➡️ As for the flavors used in this home fries recipe, they are typically Hungarian. Paprika is a spice that in Hungary is used in almost any food, so it could not be missing from cottage fries. By the way, if you like spicy food, you can use hot paprika instead of the mild version. Garlic is also widely used and in large quantities, so it offers an aroma that you will find in most Hungarian foods.
➡️ This potato recipe is very tasty and fits perfectly with any type of roast and especially with roasted pork cuts such as pork neck (Boston butt), pork ribs, bone-in pork loin, and so on. Other types of roasts fit perfectly with this home fries recipe and I’m thinking especially of roast turkey, stuffed duck, or baked chicken. Besides roasted meat, I recommend serving cottage fries with pickles or a vegetable salad such as raw cabbage salad with vinegar – either way, you’ll enjoy a real culinary feast!
➡️ Finally, I recommend you to serve these cottage potatoes while they are hot, especially if you fried them in pork or duck lard (if you don’t like pork).
Drinking wine at home!
What goes better with a delicious meal than quality wine? Nothing, both from my point of view and from the ancient Greeks, who said about wine that it’s the nectar of the gods! Can we contradict them?
