Ready for the best potatoes ever? These AMAZING Beer Battered Potatoes are just that. Made with the most basic ingredients, easy to make and the flavors are out of this world good.
In this recipe, we´re going to treat the humble potato as a main ingredient. First baking them and then frying them in some beer batter. The result is a crunchy potato with a soft interior. This is seriously what amazing food is all about.
To make this recipe, I used yukon gold potatoes, but you can use any potatoes you like. I also left the skins on the potatoes, as it gives them a beautiful rustic flavor and texture.
TIPS & TRICKS to make this Recipe: I baked my potatoes for 21 to 22 minutes with the bake and broil option (top + bottom heat). If your oven can´t don both functions at the same time, just bake them for an extra 5 minutes. I also used sunflower oil to fry the potatoes with the batter. But you can use any mild vegetable oil, such as canola oil.
