I made these potatoes a while ago as a great side to juicy cheeseburgers. I have no idea where the recipe is hiding, so I'm winging it from memory! These skillet potatoes are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside and just perfect in every way. They're great alongside burgers or steaks, but they'd also be a fabulous side dish at your next Sunday brunch. Change the flavor to compliment your menu by adding herbs and spices as they cook. Watch them disappear in no time. Trust me.
1/2 a stick of butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 a medium onion, coarsely chopped
1 pound new potatoes, halved (or quartered, if they're large)
salt and pepper
In a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, combine butter and oil until butter is melted. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350. Add garlic and onion and cook until tender. Add potatoes, toss to coat in the butter and oil, and allow to cook until potatoes are golden brown. Place the skillet in the oven and roast until potatoes are fork-tender, fragrant, and golden all over, 30-45 minutes.
