Perfect Roasted Potatoes

What makes these potatoes perfect is the fact that they’re roasted in duck fat.  Yup, duck fat.  I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to tell you about the duck fat!!  Basically, a friend of mine just happens to be married to a chef, who just happens to have rendered a giant tub of duck fat one day.  Being well aware of my food obsession, my friend kindly shared some of it with me, and ever since then these crazy good roasted potatoes (among other things) have been high on the dinner rotation.  Now I’ve never actually bought duck fat in a store, and I’ve never actually made it myself so I can’t tell you exactly how to get it, but I do know that somehow you need to get some of this in your life.

Chop your potatoes and season with salt and pepper, rosemary and maybe a bit of garlic powder.

Prepped Potatoes

Get the duck fat melted into liquid form so you can toss it with the potatoes.  Pretty much you can just use it as a substitute for olive oil or butter.

Duck Fat

Roast everything up until potatoes are cooked through with a crispy skin.  mmmmmmmm:)
