Portuguese Fried Potatoes / Batas a Portuguesa

80 mins (prep 20, cooking 60)
6 ingredients
4-6 servings
After looking though 108 Fried potato recipes and seeing none that contain parsley, but no onions, I thought I would post this typically Portuguese version of fried potatoes. The mixture of oil and butter keeps things from burning, but for health reasons I usually use less of the butter. I allow between 30 minutes and 1 hour cooking time to get a more even colour that slower cooking gives and depending on the variety of potato used.
