  • 4 potatoes (russet, gold, any starchy potato)
  • 4 tbsp. duck fat
  • 2-3 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 cloves garlic minced


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Slice potatoes into fans, about 1/4" to 1/8" thick.
  • Heat duck fat, garlic and salt until melted in a sauce and drizzle on potatoes, ensuring it gets in between the slices.
  • Bake for 60 minutes until edges are crispy but inside is tender. Test doneness with a fork or knife.


  1. Take the potatoes out every 20 minutes and spoon the fat from the pan back onto the potatoes;
  2. You may need to add additional bake time to the potatoes if they are larger - test doneness with a knife entered in the bottom of the potatoes. If it pierces the potato easily, they are done. 
  3. Add more or less garlic to your liking;
  4. If you want a little spice, add a teaspoon of crushed red pepper to the duck fat mixture;
  5. Substitute any high smoke point fat for the duck fat if desired. However, I find this recipe is best with duck fat personally. Don't use butter as it will likely burn in the oven.
