On top of myriad of ways to cook them, potatoes are cheap and great source of five of the B vitamins, potassium, phosphorus, vitamin C, etc.
My go to potatoes are simple and delicious for kids and adults. Here’s the recipe:
1 lb or 1 large potato, peeled, and diced into 1/2 inch cubes.
4 tablespoons of butter (or olive oil if you prefer)
1 teaspoon of minced garlic
1 1/4 teaspoons of salt (or to taste)
1/4 teaspoon of pepper (optional or more to taste)
Add all ingredients to a large frying pan. Non stick pans work the best. Toss to combine all ingredients. Let it cook for 5-7 minutes until the bottom of the potatoes start to caramelize. Using a spatula, turn the potatoes and cook again for 5 minutes until a crust forms on the other side. Taste and make sure the potatoes are thoroughly cooked.
PS: You can add bacon, cheese, sour cream, and chives to make this a loaded buttered potatoes.
