German Style Fried Potatoes

Simple recipes are sometimes the best. The crispiness of these thinly sliced potatoes are the secret to this dish. Crispy on the outside but fluffy on the inside and when combined with the flavors of onion and salami it is simply delicious. Jazzy is a great variety for this recipe because of it’s waxy texture.
