Simple Greek Home Fries in a Quickness

READY IN: 35mins




  • Wash and pierce potatoes and microwave 10 min (varies depending n power of microwave) until you can push a dent in to potatoes.
  • Let cool.
  • Slice in quarters then slice into 1/2 inch pieces.
  • In the meantime add oil, garlic, pepper, oregano and diced onions in a large fry pan (big enough to hold potatoes).
  • Sauté until just cooked, when onions turn translucent (about 3 minutes).
  • Once potatoes are cut, add to fry pan, add butter and basil and cook over medium heat, stirring so potatoes can pick up all the juices and flavors.
  • Turn to low, cover and let cook for an additional 10 minutes (approx) until potatoes get the crispy brown edges. mmmmm.
  • Add lemon juice and mix.
  • Serve.
  • Note: times are approximately depending on microwave and stove type. I have propane so it cooks hot.
  • ** Add in more or less spices to your liking. I need to adjust for students. With my family, I add in more garlic and lemon and no salt.
  • ***Prep and cook times overlap- this is on the table at my home in less than 30 minutes start to finish.
