These home fries are the CUTEST idea for Valentine’s Day, or better yet..a GALentine’s celebration. I had a few of my girlfriends over for brunch the weekend before Valentine’s Day and we ate every last bit of these. I wanted to make something special and have some cute decor around the house to show them how much I love and appreciate them. So the heart-shaped home fries were a BIG hit and easy to make. You can make these for any occassion, just use a different shaped cookie cutter!

Cute GALentine decor 🙂

I got the idea from Jillian Harris’s blog and put my own little spin on the recipe.

Instructions
  1. Wash and peel potatoes and boil until cooked but still firm. For medium potatoes this is about 15 minutes. I stuck a knife through to make sure they were done. You don't want them overcooked! Then put in fridge to cool.
  2. Once cooled slice each potato (about 1/2 inch thickness). Then use cookie cutter to make heart shapes. I used 2 different sizes, one very small and the other a bit larger. Make sure you use as much of each potato slice as possible so it doesn't go to waste.
  3. Preheat oven to 400° F. Add olive oil, garlic and onion to cast iron or frying pan. Let sauté until lightly browned then add heart-shaped potatoes.
  4. Sprinkle with salt, black pepper, thyme leaves, paprika and cayenne pepper (just a bit makes these quite spicy!). Sauté potatoes until lightly brown.
  5. Put in oven (make sure pan is oven-safe!) for 30-40 minutes. Check occasionally. You want to cook them until they're browned and a bit crispy on the outside.
