Help me make the perfect home fries

chefematician | Feb 6, 201107:42 AM

On weekend mornings I like to cook breakfast. I've perfected every part of my breakfast menu except the home fries. I'd like to have cubes of potato that are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. However, every time I make them they stick to the bottom of the pan. I mean they REALLY stick!! The beautiful brown crust gets stuck and I'm left with cooked potatoes but no crispy exterior.

I'm using a cast iron skillet that's been seasoned and I don't have a problem with the skillet when preparing other things so I think it must be a technique issue. I've tried using different types of fat including bacon fat, duck fat, canola oil and butter but they stick no matter what. Has anyone else encountered this issue? Any advice? Thanks for reading and I look forward to reading your wise responses!
