Crispy Whole30 Home Fries

Anytime I’m dining out for brunch, how delicious and crispy the home fries are makes or breaks my brunch experience no matter how great the main menu item is. Is anyone else the same way? I really love all different types of fries, but they need to be flavorful and crispy at the same time. I clearly have very strong feelings about this.

So, to ensure that I get my favorite types of fries every time and to add one of my favorite foods in to my meals during my Whole30, this month I decided to make it at home and it’s all I’ve been eating recently!

These Whole30 home fries are just the way I like them: crispy on the outside, and soft and pillowy on the inside. It’s so comforting and delicious all year around and it’s such a crowd pleaser recipe, because who doesn’t love home fries?

Easy One Pot Recipe

What makes these crispy Whole30 home fries even more awesome is that it’s a one pot recipe, making cleanup a breeze. Instead of using a separate pot to parboil the potatoes, you can do it in the same skillet, cooking off the water in the process.

Then, you crisp up the potatoes with some oil and ghee, and the result is perfectly textured and crusted home fries you can serve alongside some eggs or sausages!
