Quick And Easy Fried Potatoes Recipe

My son saw this being prepared the other day on a cooking show on TV. I have not found the recipe yet so I went by my sons description on how he saw it made. The potatoes were served with a sour cream sauce, but I don't think you even need the sauce. If I could find the recipe I would like to try the sauce.
These are so simple to make and taste just as good fried in butter only.
Enjoy! Debbie

BABY YUKON POTATOES; Or Baby Double-N-Creamers.

mmmm.. That looks good. I like to just shred Yukon gold, press on them with a paper towel to get them dry. Spread in a thin layer on a lightly oiled very hot non stick pan. Fry until dark brown on one side, pepper and flip to fry other side. Turn only once. Really good with toppings or just ketchup.

beginner chef, You are welcome.

Maverick2272, They were wonderful...Moist on the inside and a little crispy on the outside.

tdejarnette, I really like Yukon golds too.

sattie, It's a quick way to have potatoes. I asked my son where he saw it and it wasn't Rachel Ray. He said it was a male cook. It sounds like something Rachel Ray would do though.

I still haven't found anything on FoodNetwork.com that matches in my searches, but honestly I am just fine with Ol-Blue's recipe.. and we just bought some Yukon Gold's today

Edit: Although I would like to find the Sour Cream sauce and try it as well.

Maverick2272, My son said the sauce consists of sour cream, peppadew peppers, and some white wine. Just 3 ingredients.
He said it was like a cup of sour cream and 1/2 cup peppadew peppers, chopped and maybe 1/4 cup white wine. I'm sure this could be made to taste.

Uncle Bob, That sounds good. I always have leftover mashed potatoes. Thanks.

middie, Enjoy!
