Duck-Fat Fried Potatoes

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Holiday, Dinner Party, Potatoes

 Ingredients List

  • 1-1/2 lb. small potatoes, such as fingerlings
  • Kosher salt
  • 6 Tbs. duck fat
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 200°F. Boil the potatoes in well-salted water until just tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and transfer to a cutting board. With a meat mallet or the bottom of a small skillet, press on each potato until the skin cracks and the potato is flattened to about 1/2 inch thick.

Heat 4 Tbs. of the duck fat in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat until shimmering hot. Add half of the potatoes and cook, flipping once, until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. Repeat with the remaining 2 Tbs. duck fat and potatoes. Season the potatoes well with salt and pepper, and serve
