It agree that it's not as good as using potatoes instead of chips but the reality for me is that I need a range of nutritious dishes that go together (start to finish) in less than an hour.

And hell, how often can you come home from work at 6 and have a Ferran Adria dish on the table by 7? :D


Another shortcut? Use frozen, or previously frozen, cubed potatoes.


Good point - I'll have to consider that.

It would be interesting to do a side-by-side of the two.

Mike, I've been using those frozen potatoes doing test batches for the frittata I'll serve at this weekend's big breakfast. Not nearly as good as fresh potato, but not bad and super handy for test kitchen purposes. I love how, when cut, the cubes set in egg look like terrazzo tile.

God no. But actually, they might be better than potato chips!
