February 14, 2020

January 15, 2020

Crispy roasted potatoes are a beloved side dish in Austria. And let’s be honest: Who wouldn’t love them? Crispy on the outside with a fluffy soft center, they are not only a perfect side dish but also stand out all alone. I often times enjoy them as a quick snack at movie nights just like potato wedges. With a quick sour cream dipping sauce, they become highly addictive.
