Home fries have always been a morning favorite, but it can be a long and tedious project to prepare them. This recipe makes a big batch that can be put in the freezer. If you’re in a rush in the morning or just craving a quick starch fix, you can easily put the potatoes in a pan with some oil to crisp them up. No more worrying about all that cutting. Preparing and then freezing the batch takes away a bunch of cooking time for when you’re on the go
Prep Time: 10mins
Cook Time: 15mins
Yield: 8-12 servings
- 4 lg sweet potatoes cut into a ¼’’ dice
- 2 green bell peppers cut into a ¼’’ dice
- 1 medium onion cut into a ¼’’ dice
- 1 tbs garlic powder
- 1 tbs paprika
- Salt and pepper to taste
1. Bring a large pot filled with cold tap water to a boil on your Wolf Cook Top or Range. If using a Wolf Convection Steam oven place oven to 210F on the steam setting.
2. Add the sweet potatoes and cook until just under fork tender, about 6-10 mins
3. Strain the potatoes if boiled. Place on a parchment lined sheet tray sprayed with non-stick spray along with the diced peppers and onions. Sprinkle with garlic powder and paprika. If the sheet tray looks crowded, you may have to use two.
4. Place sheet tray(s) in your Sub-Zero freezer. Once frozen place into gallon freezer bags and store in your Sub-Zero Freezer and use as needed.
5. When ready to eat, take a non-stick pan and preheat with a high smoke temp oil (such as grape seed oil, avocado oil, canola oil, or vegetable oil). Add desired amount of home fries and sauté until golden.
The mixture may clumps up slightly in freezer bag. If so, while keeping the potatoes in the bag, drop it on your countertop until broken apart. When cooking the home fries, don’t overcrowd the pan when sautéing and don’t over mix either. If you do this, it will prevent the home fries from getting that beautiful golden-brown color.
