In the summertime with lots of people at camp and a lot of cooking going on, burner space is at a minimum. This recipe starts on the stovetop and finishes in the oven.

Ingredients Nutrition


  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.).

I did not start this one on the stove, nor did I peel the potatoes! I washed them, cut them, tossed them in a bowl with olive oil, minced garlic, onion powder, sea salt and paprika. I sprayed my cookie sheet and baked 12 mins, tossed then another 12 mins. So fast, so easy, and sooooo tasty! I will be doing this again, and I love that I didn't have to dirty multiple pans too.

These were really good! I added a little Paprika. Tastes much better than the frozen Home Fries! Just as easy to make too if you don't mind peeling potatoes. I will make them often.
