The secret to this is to use cold cooked potatoes, a cast-iron skillet and don't over stir while they brown in the skillet, this makes a great accompaniment to eggs, prep time does not included overnight chilling time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the cold potatoes into 3/4-inch cubes.
  2. Melt the butter with oil in a 9 or 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add in the cold potato cubes and cook tossing gently and occasionally for 10 minutes.
  4. Add in onion and continue to cook until the potatoes are browned on all sides, stirring gently.
  5. Season with seasoned salt and black pepper.

I make a recipe of my own creation almost exactly like this pretty often but I add more onion and add them a bit sooner than you do or even before i begin to cook the potatoes because i like mine carmelized. Your way is still absolutely delicious though !

These were delicious, even though I don't have a cast-iron skillet. Plus, it's a quick and easy weeknight meal since the potatoes don't need to be peeled and are precooked the evening before. I steamed the potatoes in the microwave to get them fork-tender. The spices were perfect. I added some Portuguese sausage to make it a one-dish meal. Thanks Kitten!
