They can be eaten as a simple meal for dinner, with a variety of toppings. They have other uses than just a simple dinner. Did you know that baked potatoes also make great home fries that cook up quick?

Potatoes are a comforting food and very easy to digest. Here is an easy way to have them all year round. All you need are potatoes, a crockpot and some tin foil.

First you take several potatoes, wash them well, poke them several times with a fork and wrap them in tin foil.

Place the wrapped potatoes in a crockpot and cook on high for 6-7 hours or until fork tender.

At this point you can take out the potatoes and have them as traditional baked potatoes with a variety of toppings or…

Cut up the potatoes into cubes. No need to remove the skin.

Fry them up in oil that is medium-high. They should sizzle when entering the pan. Because they are already cooked, they don’t absorb much oil.

After frying up, I drain them on paper towel or newspaper and dust them with salt, pepper and paprika.

Easy peasy!
