Deep Fried Sour Cream Potatoes

     I love potatoes.  They are wonderful and you can do anything with a potato.  Years ago there was this restaurant I worked at in Chandler.  It was great,  they had the best food and they served this amazing augratin potato topped with bread crumbs and served in a oven proof baking dish.  There was sour cream and onion and it was baked to perfection.   Later I was doing a consultant job and remember those amazing potatoes, but wanted to do something off the charts.  So I created this recipe for deep fried sour cream augratin potatoes.  They were well received,  baking them was wonderful, but breaded and deep fried put them over the top.

     Recently I was doing and  I found the old recipe and revived it.  Everyone loved them.  So here is the recipe,  I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
