Ingredients :

  • 2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes (4 medium), scrubbed, partially cooked and sliced thinly or diced into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 – 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 large onion, yellow or Vidalia
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

How to Create Savor-Crisp Golden Taters:

  1. Prepare the Potatoes: Begin by partially cooking the potatoes, either by microwaving for 5 minutes or until slightly tender. Slice them thinly or dice them into 1/2-inch cubes.
  2. Heat the Butter and Oil: In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter and combine it with the olive oil.
  3. Sauté the Potatoes: Add the sliced or diced potatoes to the skillet, ensuring an even spread. Allow them to cook undisturbed until achieving a golden-brown hue on one side, approximately 5 minutes.
  4. Incorporate the Onions: Carefully turn the potatoes to ensure uniform browning, then introduce the sliced onion to the skillet.
  5. Golden Perfection: Continue the cooking process, turning the potato and onion medley every few minutes. Aim for well-browned potatoes and softened, caramelized onions, which typically takes 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper according to your taste preferences.
