Found myself at another house making dinner for three children. There were NO vegetables, fresh or otherwise, (they had just moved in) but I found two large sweet potatoes. I was told that they were not liked, but I needed a this came about.... nice and soft inside, crispy outside.


  1. Wash and medium dice potatoes.
  2. Heat oil and butter together over med-high heat in a stanless steel or cast iron skillet with cover. (Will not work in a non-stick pan.).
  3. Add potatoes, salt and sugar and stir until potatoes are coated.
  4. Spread out into one layer. Allow to cook and brown WITHOUT touching for 4-5 minutes.
  5. Stir, flipping potatoes over. Lower heat to medium. (If using an electric range, turn heat off.) Cook another 3-4 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and cover skillet. Let stand another 5 minutes.
  7. Now all that is left is to --.
  8. EAT!
