|Brabant Potatoes, known as Louisiana fries, are made from peeled and cubed potatoes, first blanched, then deep fried and tossed with a rich, butter garlic sauce. A delicious side for fish, or any main dish!|
Brabant Potatoes – Louisiana Fries
While still served in high end restaurants around here on the Gulf Coast, I'm afraid that Brabant Potatoes, a Louisiana style, cubed, fried potato side, has mostly fallen out of favor with home cooks in recent years – probably due to their multiple steps. Although folks seem to be making their way back to home cooking – and often, lamenting the fact that they didn't pay more attention to their grandmother in the kitchen – I'm afraid that in this hurry up, busy world we live in, we've mostly become more of an eat out and fast food nation.
