  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Melt margarine/butter over medium heat in a large heavy bottomed fry pan which has a heat resistant handle(I use cast iron)
  3. When butter starts to sizzle add potatoes and let fry for 2 minutes.
  4. Turn with a spatula and cook for another 2 minutes.
  5. Continue until all sides of potato cubes are browned.
  6. Place in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until potatoes are tender.*.
  7. (Cooking time will depend on the type of potato used. Yukon Gold/Katahdins/Red Norlands take less time to cook than Shepradies/Russett/BellRus. Use your own judgement.).
