My waist isn't fond of this, but my mouth doesn't care! This is delicious! I've even made this with just cottage sliced potatoes, olive oil, and when almost done sprinkle garlic powder over or take out, drain and sprinkle "essence" (thanks to Emeril)over all.

Fantastic! My changes were 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon butter for cooking. I quickly saut?ed the garlic, then add the potatoes and kept frying with medium low heat till the potatoes brown on the sides (make sure to keep watch and turn the potatoes every few minutes so the garlic don't burn!), sprinkle lemon juice all over the potatoes and finally seasoned it with pepper and salt. Awesome! Hubby said this is a definite keeper!

Great recipe ! I am now making this for the second time. I used new potatoes which I peeled after boiling & fresh herbs from the garden. This time I will cut the garlic cloves down by one. To spare the people who have not eaten with us. Thanks Lorac, this is a keeper.
