Cottage Fries with Spicy Ranch

  • Author: The Grill Dads
  • Prep Time: 4 hours
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 4 hours, 30 minutes
  • Yield: 2-3 servings 1x



For Potatotes

For Spicy Ranch

  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon Really Ranch Salt Free Blend
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 12 teaspoons hot sauce, like Tapatio
  • Salt, if desired


Cottage Fries

  1. Cut potatoes with a sharp knife of mandolin to 1/4 inch thick rounds.  Place in a large bowl and cover with cold water and soak for 2-4 hours.  Place on paper towel and allow to dry for 10-15 minutes before frying.
  2. Heat oil to 300º F.  Fry the potatoes in small batches for 5-7 minutes.  Remove to a paper towel lined baking sheet, repeat with the remaining potatoes.  This is the first fry, so they should not be browned, but just cooked.
  3. Increase the oil temperature to 375º F and fry the potatoes again until they begin to turn golden brown, about 8-10 minutes.  Remove to a clean paper towel lined sheet and immediately sprinkle with Salt Pepper + Sour Cream Onion seasoning on both sides.  Repeat with all remaining potatoes and serve immediately with Spicy Ranch (recipe below).

Spicy Ranch

  1. In a small bowl, add all ranch ingredients and stir well to combine.  Refrigerate until ready to use.
