  • Cut the potatoes into equal bite sized pieces. No need to peel them.
  • Place the potatoes into a large bowl. Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil and kosher salt to taste. Mix to apply a thin coat of oil to the potatoes.
  • Heat up a pan over medium heat. Add the potatoes. Give yourself about 20 minutes to cook them through. Time depends on the size and variety of your potatoes.
  • Stir every so often to make sure the potatoes don't burn. If they are getting brown and are not tender yet you can add some water to the pan. Just enough to cover them half way. All the water will boil off. Repeat if necessary.
  • When potatoes are tender you can remove them from the pan. If they aren't browned to your liking, then turn up the heat and quickly brown them before removing from the pan.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and add additional salt if they need it, along with freshly cracked black pepper.


Add any of these additional seasonings if you like once the potatoes are cooked.
  • Chopped fresh parsley or any fresh herbs
  • Chopped green onions
  • Smoked paprika
If you want to add garlic, shallots, or onions cook them in the pan till soft before you add the potatoes. You will want to add just a little bit of oil.
