Cook the Book: Potatoes Girarrosto-Style

One of the most comforting things in life is a big plate of potatoes, and this version from Urban Italian is no exception. They saved Andrew Carmellini's soul and will quite possibly save yours too. While working as a broke cook in Italy, Carmellini would eat the potatoes from Girarrosto Francia, a little rotisseria around the corner, whenever he had a few lire to scrape together. Basting in fat drippings from the roasting chickens, these were a crispy antidote to a "chilly, unromantic winter" abroad.

Crispy potato nuggets with a creamy, soft interior are never unwelcome at any meal I've been to and a couple of minutes of stovetop caramelizing go a long way into making these ultra crispy.
