How To Reheat Home Fries

We rarely have leftovers! They are so good it is incredibly hard to resist. If you happen to have some leftover home fries toss them in the microwave for a quick warm up.

OR opt to warm them up in the oven. Spread them out on a sheet pan and season with salt and pepper. Then bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until they are warmed. This will give you a crispier texture where microwaving will soften them up.

  2. Realllly gonna try this!! But I’m lazy and intend to use frozen cubes. How much would I need to get the same weight as the 6 potatoes?
