Tips & Tricks

If you’re looking for an even more indulgent take on our fried potatoes, then transfer the finished potatoes to an ovenproof skillet, sprinkle with a handful of cheddar cheese, and place under the broiler. Remove pan when the cheese has melted and started to bubble on top. Finish your masterpiece by sprinkling some red chili flakes or scallions on top and serving straight from the oven. Enjoy!
