How To Make Low FODMAP Home Fries

Home fries are a hearty and filling addition to any breakfast. For something as simple as fried potato cubes in some seasoning, it has a surprising impact on the entire meal.

Thankfully, potatoes are low FODMAP and aren’t difficult to cook.

First, we need the ingredients!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs Russet Potatoes – Skinned (optional), washed, and cut into cubes
  • Low FODMAP cooking oil
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/4 tbsp Thyme
  • 1/4 tbsp Paprika
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

The ingredient list isn’t very long and you can easily add extra spices if you want. Personally, I like to add a little more than 1/4 tablespoon of paprika and put around 1/3 tablespoon. However, I didn’t want to over spice it for other people in this recipe so 1/4 will be more than enough for most.

Although this recipe is low FODMAP, if I’m making it without FODMAPs being concerned then I’ll add some garlic to the potatoes as well for extra flavor. 

Directions

  • Peel (optional), dice into cubes, and wash the russet potatoes.
  • Prep potatoes by bringing a pot of salted water to a boil and boiling the potato cubes until they are almost tender and drain.
  • Put cooking oil and unsalted butter into medium sized pan and melt over medium heat.
  • Place the potatoes in the pan and season with thyme, paprika, salt, and pepper. Distribute the potato cubes evenly throughout the pan, ensuring as many are touching the pan as possible.
  • Cook until the bottoms begin to crisp and then flip/stir, making sure there are as many new sides of the cubes are touching the pan.
  • Cook until slightly browned and desired consistency is reached.

 

Best Home Fries Seasoning

You’ll find a lot of different recipes for home fries on the internet. Many recipes you’ll find will have similar ingredients, but there are some surprising spices used in some. I prefer the simple thyme, paprika, salt, and pepper as my spices for home fries. But, you can add whatever you want to your recipe. 

Some additional seasonings and ingredients you’ll find in home fries are onions, garlic powder, onion powder, and some even use oregano. Be warned if you’re trying to stay low FODMAP though as some of those ingredients could cause digestion issues. 

 

Prepping Potatoes For Home Fries

There are a few ways to prep potatoes for home fries and by prep I mean partially cook. If you try to simply fry your potatoes, the middles wont adequately cook while the outside will char, giving a weird texture to bite. 

The way I prep in this recipe is to slightly boil the potatoes in salted water, cooking until they are almost tender. But, there are faster alternatives that only slightly sacrifice texture. For example, if I’m in a rush, I’ll do everything I did before such as cutting them into cubes and microwave them for a short period of time. I prefer boiling the potatoes, but if I don’t have time and want them made quickly, I’ll microwave. 

 

Best Skillet For Home Fries

I’ll usually use a red copper style pan because I’ve gotten used to it before having a skillet. That being said, it’s more common to use a cast iron skillet to get a good crispy taste for your home fries. 

There are a lot of options for pans and skillets, but you don’t need anything complicated or expensive. A great example for a cheap but great skillet is this one made by Lodge. It’s just a personal recommendation though and most skillets and pans will suffice for simple low FODMAP home fries.
