Contrast. Texture. Purple and not toxic. Crispy. This small plate has some bold flavors, perfect for a romantic night in or for a hungry group of people standing around with forks. Contrast is really the name of the game here. My Crispy Potatoes with Sriracha Sour Cream are about two things – texture and contrast. If you get a solid crunch on the potatoes, and can serve these immediately with cool sour cream, you will make people happy. Very happy. —Todd Burton

So there I was with a bag of potatoes and some eggs ready to make breakfast, when I decided I needed to find a better way to make crispy potatoes. Fortunately I found this recipe! I used red potatoes and tossed them in finely chopped rosemary, salt, and pepper after boiling them. I was so excited to see the skin firm up and start to bubble in the oven. Once ready I threw this yogurt sauce I had left over from the night before on top (greek yogurt, lemon juice, sumac, garlic, salt, pepper, tad of buttermilk) and it was perfect. Thank you! My new go-to way to make potatoes:]
