Skillet Potatoes

"I came up with this recipe for the 11th RSC contest. I used red skinned potatoes but other types would work just as well. I boiled mine, but leftover baked potatoes would work also. These worked well with as a side dish with steak or with eggs for breakfast. We've also eaten them as the main dish. If you want a little more kick, increase the cayenne pepper to 1/4 teaspoon."

    Great potatoes! We loved them. I also served them with eggs and it was a wonderful combination of flavors. Thanks, Kim127.

    Fantastic (and it does go great with eggs)! I used red-skin potatoes, but steamed them in the microwave first to soften. I will be making this often. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT5.

    Omg! I would give you 10 stars for this recipe. My family loved loved it. This recipe is hidden, it needs to be discovered. An Amazing potato side. I only regret that I didn't double the recipe, cuz we had no leftovers for lunch. We topped the potatoes with 3 Cheese Ranch Salad dressing and it really made it even that much better. Thank you for posting this recipe and I will make again soon. I made for team "Cooks With Dirty Faces" for ZWT5

    Very yummy! I omitted the salt and butter. This was a great way to prepare potatoes that I am sure I will be using frequently. Thanks for sharing!

    Delicious recipe made with yellow potatoes, swiss chard and manchego cheese cause that's what I had in the fridge. My picky sons didn't eat "the green stuff" but ate the potatoes. My hubby isn't a fan of potatoes but he liked these. For Bevy Tag.

    Wow! I made a light version of these (less oil and cheese, no butter, used low fat turkey bacon), and they were still absolutely fantastic! I added some garlic, used a chili pepper instead of the cayenne, and just a sprinkle of salt. It took only about 8 minutes for me for this to brown pretty well. The combination of flavors really works here, and the balance of veggies to potatoes is just right. We topped this with nonfat sour cream, which enhanced the flavor nicely, but it certainly does not need it. Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
