Addicting Salt & Vinegar potatoes are everything you love about the chips and more because of the tender fluffy potato interior. When I saw this recipe on Bon Appetit’s Twitter page, I scrounged around the kitchen and made sure I had the ingredients to make them that same day! One of the benefits of having a very well stocked kitchen is I almost always can make a recipe work without having to make a trip to the store. This recipe lived up to the hype!
Combine potatoes, 1 cup vinegar, and 1 Tbsp. kosher salt in a medium saucepan. Add water until it is covered and has about an extra inch of water on top.
Simmer potatoes gently until cooked through and soft but not falling apart.
Heat canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Cook potatoes until browned and crispy, about 8-10 minutes. Patience is the key here.
Don’t stir too often, you want them to brown nicely and the more you stir the less they will brown and the more they will fall apart.
Put into serving bowel and lightly pour remaining two tablespoons of vinegar over the potatoes.
Give the potatoes a final sprinkle of kosher salt and serve!

Those look like potatoes my grandma used to make for breakfast. I love the crispy part!
