  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp of your favorite herb
  • 1 tbs finely minced onion
  • 2 tbs parsley
  • 1 tbs butter optional


  • Dry cubed potatoes either in a tea towel or between paper towels, Make sure they're as dry as you can get them.
  • Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil and butter.
  • When butter foams, add the potatoes and fry until all sides are crisp and golden. Add the salt, pepper, onion and the 1/2 teaspoon of the herb you are using.If there are some pieces that need further cooking, cover pan and cook for 5 additional minutes.
  • Add parsley and toss to coat. Add the 1 tablespoon of butter, if you are using it, and toss to coat the potatoes.


If you’re not going to cook them immediately, place the potatoes in a bowl of acidified water (see post)
If using dried herbs, use HALF the amount specified for fresh.
