  • large, deep-walled skillet


  • 2 lbs. Russet potatoes
  • 2 tbsps. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 4 tbsps. unsalted butter
  • 1/4 tsp. paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh-ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsps. green onion diced


  • Cube potatoes into small, bite-sized pieces; set aside.
  • Toss cubed potatoes with spices. Ensure all surfaces are coated with spice and oil.
  • In a large skillet, heat up your butter, and saute your garlic for 2 minutes before adding the home fries in.
  • Add in potatoes into the skillet, and cook covered for 10 minutes. Flip them around and cook for another 10 minutes covered. The edges will start to become slightly golden brown.
  • Remove cover and stir potatoes until you see them start to turn golden brown on some of their edges
  • Remove potatoes from heat, allow potatoes to sit for a few minutes to absorb the yummy flavors. Personally, I will make these ahead of time and reheat them because they will have an even better flavor infusion.


Using a large cast iron skillet will yield nicely crisp, evenly cooked fries. If you want to shorten the cooking time, simply boil the potatoes for 10 minutes and rinse them with cool water. This shortens the browning time. However, you do not want to over boil or overcook them because they will turn mushy!
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
To reheat, add potatoes to a skillet with 1-2 tablespoons and oil and cook top heat and slightly crisp.
