1. Fried Potatoes Recipe
Which potato variety is the right one? …use a waxy potato variety for perfect fried potatoes.

Simple guide for preparing fried potatoes.
|300||g||Potatoes (I like to use this year’s young potatoes)|
|20||ml||Sunflower oil (You can also use rapeseed oil!)|
|1/4||tsp||Salt (I use Ursalz or Himalaya salt)|
|1||tsp||majoram (I also like to use thyme, rosemary, parsley.)|
|20||g||Butter cold (I also like to use Ghee)|
Wash the potatoes with peel, cook in salted water until soft, drain and peel.
Cut the potatoes into 3-4 mm slices. I always let the potatoes cool down a bit, boiled potatoes from the day before are very good!
Fry the potato slices in a coated pan with the oil.
Cut the onion generously at the top and root, halve and peel. Cut the onion halves into strips.
Turn the potato slices in the pan and fry on all sides.
Place the prepared onion strips in the pan and fry at high temperature. Onions caramelise easily with this method of preparation and form a wonderful, sweet aroma.
Season the fried potatoes with salt, pepper, nutmeg, cayenne pepper and marjoram and toss in the butter.
Place the fried potatoes in the pan until warm and serve.

4. Tips for Raw or Boiled Potatoes for Frying Potatoes
You can use cooked or raw potatoes to prepare fried potatoes.
Raw potato slices must then first make a free float in the hot oil, only so they are cooked.
This works quite well in the deep fryer.
Alternatively, you can also cook the raw potato slices in the pan floating in the fat.
The potato slices should not lie on top of each other, but only next to each other and enjoy their fat bath.
In this way, the potato slices do not stick together and can cook evenly in the fat.
The fried roast potatoes are second choice for me at home.
I prefer to boil the potatoes and then prepare the fried potatoes classically in the pan.
Many cooks even put the cooked potato slices into the fryer first and then into the pan.
This is simply faster and saves time. At Alfons Schuhbeck’s, we always cooked the potato slices in the deep fryer first.
Then with butter, marjoram, caraway. Salt, pepper and nutmeg refined.
The advantage of this preparation: The potato slices are so evenly crispy even in larger quantities.
5. How to Make your Fried Potatoes Extra Fine
For this we still want to turn to the typical herbs and spices:
Parsley, marjoram, thyme, caraway and nutmeg are the classics.Herbs and spices tip from chef Thomas Sixt
Dried or fresh? Both make the great tubers happy and tasty.
Fresh herbs you can add a little later, so that the color and aroma are well preserved.
The rosemary and sage is the exception. I fry both first crispy in oil, remove them from the pan and only then make the potatoes fine.
Only shortly before serving the herb chips and crispy needles may return to the potato meeting.
You can roast dried marjoram, which awakens the flavors exquisitely!Says chef Thomas Sixt about the use of dried herbs
