Ingredients
  • 4 small russet potatoes washed and cut into 1/2" pieces
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil or other high heat oil or fat - see NOTES
  • 1 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black peppe
Instructions
  1. Wash potatoes and poke multiple times with a fork. Wrap each potato in a small piece of paper towel and place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave for 7 to 9 minutes until just fork tender (but not falling apart!)

  2. Transfer to a cutting board (they will be hot!) and slice into 1/2" pieces. I cut each half into 8 pieces but it really depends on the size and shape of the potato.

  3. Heat a large 12" frying pan (or cast iron skillet) over medium high heat. Once hot, add oil. Allow oil to heat up and then add potato chunks in a single layer. Sprinkle with half of the paprika, salt and pepper.

  4. Cook for 12 to 14 minutes, turning 3 to 4 times to make sure all sides get browned evenly. Sprinkle remaining paprika, salt and pepper on potatoes as you turn them.

  5. When done, transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel (single layer if you want them to stay crispy) until ready to serve.
