Awesome Pan Fried Potatoes

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 15 mins

I made this up tonight in search of something different from baked(boiled)potatoes. My oven was not working yet so I decided to pan fry them and they were a hit. ***Updated on 9/16 to add that potatoes should be browned and to add more oil as needed.


  1. Microwave potatoes for 5-6 minutes to soften.
  2. Cut potatoes into bite size pieces(about 1 inch cubes).
  3. Dice onion.
  4. Spray large frying pan with olive oil and add potatoes, onions,paprika and garlic adding more oil as needed to brown the potatoes. Cook on medium heat until tender and browned.
  5. When done, add white wine and salt and pepper to taste.

tasted good...til I added the wine. Next time I'll just omit that step.

What a great treat with our eggs and bacon. I loved the meld of flavors and will make them again!

FANTASTIC! we loved this, I increased the garlic and used half butter and olive oil, added lots fresh ground black pepper and doubled the complete recipe, thank you for posting this wonderful recipe, the addition of wine takes this to another level, 5 stars all the way!
