Cast Iron Fried Potatoes

Cast Iron Fried Potatoes

I love cooking with my cast iron skillet. These cast-iron fried potatoes will make a perfect side dish for any meal. These little baby yellow potatoes are very versatile. You can use them for just about anything, baked, sauteed, mashed, roasted, I choose the fry them.

Cast Iron Skillet Potatoes

These little baby yellow potatoes are firm white potatoes with thin skin. They're perfect for my cast iron skillet.

I first rinsed them in cold water and then dried them. Leaving the skin on, I sliced the potatoes about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. You can cut them any way that you like, sliced or quartered.

I covered the bottom of my 10-inch cast-iron skillet with olive oil, then added 2 tablespoons of butter. Let this heat up over medium heat. I cut the potatoes while waiting for the pan to heat up.

I love cooking with garlic, so, I chopped a clove of garlic and added it to the skillet. Let this heat up until the garlic becomes fragrant. Now add the potatoes and begin to stir.

As they cook, add a generous amount of Italian seasoning.  Add sea salt and black pepper to your taste. Continue to move and toss the potatoes as they cook. This will prevent them from sticking and cooking too much on one side. Cook until the potatoes are golden brown.

 Now, you have a quick, easy, and perfect side dish for any meal. Try these delicious little potatoes with my Perfect Cast Iron Skillet Steak.

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy it!
