Skillet Italian Herbed Country Potatoes

Total Time

This is a quick and easy potato side dish, which is my husband's most requested. This recipe can be modified, using many different combinations of herbs and spices, to accompany any meal. The recipe calls for fresh herbs, but one could substitute dried herbs as well. Just remember when using dried herbs, use half the amount called for in a recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, melt butter and olive oil together.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to the skillet. Stir until potatoes are evenly coated with spice mixture and onion slices are evenly distributed.
  3. Cook covered on medium heat for 15 minutes, tossing and turning the potatoes every few minutes.
  4. Potatoes will be done when slightly browned and fork-tender.

These potatoes were a nice change for us. I didn't have any sage so, I used a bit of herbes de provence that I had in my cupboard. The flavors meshed nicely. I liked that these potatoes weren't too crispy nor too soggy. I will definitely make these again and experiment with different spices. My man usually eats his taters with ketchup but, he said these had enough flavor by themselves. Thank you for sharing a new recipe that will allow us to have more variety with our potatoes.

Very good. Served as a side to 3-Ingredient Pan-Simmered Italian Boneless Pork Chops Recipe #373334. I used fresh parsley, garlic, dried rosemary, and italian herb seasoning because that's what I had on hand. I cut the potatoes very thin - next time I'll make them a little thicker. Thanks for sharing!
