This is my go-to method for dicing potatoes. Whether the potatoes are going to be mashers, soup or roasted this creates nice, bite-sized pieces so you can have a bite of potato with enough room on your spoon for whatever else is a part of your dish. If you’re going to boil the potatoes, smaller pieces cook faster so it’s a double win!
Step by Step:
For the last few cuts I have my hand holding the stack together once I’ve got the knife to bite into the potato. It’s much easier to hold the stack together after every slice than to try and manage individual, slippery potato fries. Turn your stack you’ve held together the other way and slice back across those fries, making a dice.
