Ever tried circular fries? Sometimes you want a bit of potato on the side of your meal; something different to your regular roast potato or plain French fries.
Cottage fries are something I was accustomed to when growing up with Portuguese cuisine.
In Portuguese cafes you’d typically get your chips served this way. If the chips you’re getting aren’t frozen of course.
What does cottage fries mean?
Cottage fries are really just homemade chips; essentially just potato sliced into circular slices and fried.
What do cottage fries pair well with?
I love me some cottage fries with something hearty like a mushroom stroganoff, served with rice and salad. Something simple, healthy, yet wholesome.
Cottage fries are a great, kid-friendly variation to regular fries and with the skin left on; provides more nutrition than the average fry.
We hope you enjoy this simple round fry recipe, feel free to bookmark for future use.
