Pan Fried Potatoes


Add the oil to a large nonstick saute pan and cook over medium-high heat until it starts to sizzle.

Add the potatoes and cook for 2-3 minutes without stirring to brown on one side.

Stir the potatoes and add salt, pepper, and chives.

Continue cooking on medium heat for 8-10 minutes, stirring every 3 minutes until the potatoes have cooked through.

Add 1 tablespoon of butter. Stir until melted into the potatoes and serve.

Chef’s Tip:

For additional flavor, add a tablespoon of chopped fresh thyme leaves or parsley and fold well into the potatoes before serving.

For a spicy touch add 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes.
