Skillet-Browned Potatoes

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Jessica K

These are a great and yummy alternative to regular old mashed potatoes!! This is a simple country recipe with it's origins from the British regions, then made it's way over to Canada and the US.

Delicious. I agree about the amounts of spices; I just shook them on by eye, but probably used about 1 TBS of seasoned salt, and then used garlic powder and onion powder, and some salt and pepper.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice potatoes into chunks or into round slices, I have cooked them both ways and both are good. It is just personal preference for shape.
  2. Boil for 10 minutes in salted water, drain in a collander. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat melt butter and oil in skillet.
  3. When butter is melted add onions. When translucent, add potatoes and seasonings. Cover and cook on one side for 5-7 minute. Flip and cook on other side for 5-7 more minute.
  4. Potatoes should be browned and crispy looking, but also a little soft. If butter ran dry during cooking add 2 more TB. Enjoy!
