Roasting par-cooked potatoes in duck fat makes them super crispy, golden and delicious.  Turns any meal into an occasion.



  • 1 pound honey gold or baby dutch potatoes or other teeny tiny potato
  • 2 tablespoons duck fat
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • sprinkle parsley chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°.

  2. Place the potatoes in a pot and cover with water.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are tender, but not falling apart.  Drain potatoes and place on a rimmed sheet pan.

  3. Use the flat bottom portion of a one cup measure, glass or other 3-4" wide flat surface to gently smash the potatoes to about 1/2" thick. Add the duck fat to the potatoes and gently toss the potatoes to coat them with the duck fat.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper and roast for 15 minutes.

  4. Using a spatula, flip the potatoes and return them to the hot oven for an additional 15-20 minutes.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with parsley. Serve.
