"Potatoes are the perfect field for flavors. This recipe showcases the garlic beautifully while still allowing for the pure enjoyment only an Idaho® Potato can provide." -Jeannie Pierola



  1. Combine butter and garlic in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Using a large, heavy bottomed pot, fill halfway with oil and heat to 325°F. Blanch diced potatoes in oil until tender, but not browned, about 4 minutes.
  3. Drain on paper towels and transfer to a small sheet pan. Freeze or chill potatoes until ready to serve.
  4. When ready to serve, reheat oil to 325°F and fry frozen or chilled potatoes until golden browned, about 3 minutes. Drain potatoes on paper towels, and transfer to a mixing bowl. Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of the softened garlic-butter, tossing to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
