Kittencal's Crispy Skillet Potatoes

"If you love the leftover crispy pieces of potatoes left in the pan then this is one you will enjoy! --- the potatoes must be cooked and completely cold before slicing which makes this the perfect recipe to use up leftover potatoes, I love making this with leftover potatoes from a roast they have so much flavor --- make lots or make a small amount I always make lots my family loves these better than fries! --- prep time does not include boiling the potatoes."

    fantastic! i used baby yukon golds and left the skin on. cooked the potatoes a day or so ago and diced them up the night before the big father's day breakfast! seasoned with tons of salt and pepper and used half butter and half evoo for frying. thanks for the awesome potato recipe!! reminds me of my grandma's fried potato recipe.
    I am having a hard time getting the computer to accept the ratings. I will try this one again. These potatoes are fantastic! My hubby'as grandma used to make them for him as a child. He loved them, now he loves these! I also left the peels on. We all need the vitamins and goodness out of the veggies. Wonderful flavor! I threw some parmesan on top when I served it. Thanks for sharing, Kitten!
