Preparation – 10 minutes

Slice the potatoes, making sure that they are not too thick, but more importantly, not too thin. Ensure that they are all the same thickness.

Use a star-shaped cutter to cut stars out of the potato slices. If you don't have a cutter, you can cut out stars by hand with a small knife.

Finishing the potato stars – 15 minutes

Heat a dash of oil in a large frying pan over medium heat and add the stars to it. After a few minutes, lower the heat and turn over the stars, then cook for a few more minutes over medium heat.

Add a splash of vegetable stock; as soon as it has evaporated, the potatoes will be cooked. Add a knob of butter and fry the stars until golden brown on both sides.

Be careful when turning them over so they don't break. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately, enjoy!
