Golden and crispy on the outside with creamy interiors, these flavorful pommes des terre will make any dinner special.  And what a perfect dish for weekend cooking. You can double the batch and you’ll have leftovers for dinner on Monday night. Read on for the recipe.


 YIELD: 4-6


  • 3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 2” chunks
  • Kosher salt
  • White vinegar
  • 6 tablespoons Duck Fat, softened
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary, rough chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Placed potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Add a few tablespoons of salt and a splash of vinegar. Bring to a boil over medium high heat and par-cook until exteriors are just tender, about 4-5 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  3. Spoon duck fat over potatoes and toss to coat evenly. Don’t worry about rough, slightly broken up edges – they’ll yield crispy results!
  4. Spread potatoes evenly on a rimmed baking sheet. Season with salt & pepper. Sprinkle with rosemary.
  5. Roast until evenly golden brown and cooked through, about 35 – 40 minutes, flipping once at the midway point. Serve hot.

    This also works great with goose fat, which I render & save from our annual Xmas roast goose & keep in the freezer. Keeps beautifully for use all year until the next Xmas bird.
