These go with everything. Everyone in my family could hoover down a plate of these meant to serve our whole gang. I have to put them on the table just before serving because a plate of these lingering in the kitchen is just asking for trouble. They are very simple to make, but do require some attention at the stove.
Some dishes they would be great with are:
- 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil, divided
- 4 large baking or Yukon potatoes, peeled and diced
- Salt to taste
- In a large skillet over medium-high heat (preferably nonstick), add one tablespoon of oil, then sauté the potatoes until lightly browned, but not cooked through, about 8 minutes. You may need to do this in batches; don’t crowd the pan. Add a bit of salt and toss and stir frequently.
- Use a slotted spoon to transfer the potatoes to a paper towel lined plate for a moment to absorb excess oil, then transfer them to a serving platter and serve hot.
