Quick easy side dish. It takes just minutes into the microwave and then transfer to the pan for a quick pan fry. Some fresh parsley, garlic and shallots make this perfect. I loved pan fried potatoes but sometimes they just take too long and I always feel like I'm using too much butter or oil so this is my quick compromise. Now you can use the pre-bagged either frozen or dairy aisle packaged potatoes, but to me there is no comparison. I just love the sweetness and rustic flavor of the red skinned potatoes. Besides this is so easy to make and such a great inexpensive side dish. Serve with steak, fried fish, or any seafood, and of course one of my favorites an omelette. I don't know about you, but I can eat breakfast any time of the day.
