Crispy Pan Potatoes


  • 3 cups (720 ml) mini starchy potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) butter
  • ½ cup (120 ml) diced yellow onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • ½ tablespoon (7.5 ml) smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Scrub potatoes clean and add to a microwave-safe dish with a lid. Add potatoes to microwave and cook on high for 7 minutes.
  2. Heat oil and butter in a large, heavy frying pan over medium heat. Remove potatoes from microwave and add to pan, squishing to flatten. Cook potatoes for 5 minutes.
  3. Add onion, garlic, smoked paprika, salt and pepper, and stir to combine. Cook for 8-10 minutes, turning periodically to get both sides of the potatoes golden and crispy. Season with salt and pepper.
