My husband and I like to eat potato logs when we eat out if they are offered. I just decides I could make my own version and have them at home anytime. The only problem now is we eat to much when I cook them.
Cut potatoes into logs, 3 or 4 per potato depending on size of potato. Salt and pepper potato, dredge in flour, dredge in buttermilk and dredge in flour again. Fry in oil on medium heat until potato is tender and crispy brown. Drain on paper towel, may need to sprinkle with more salt when done. The amount of buttermilk and flour you use depends on how many potatoes you use. I usually allow 2 potatoes per person.
