Simple and Quick Potatoes

These potatoes are one of my favorite quick sides to make.  Being that you use canned potatoes and dried spices they are something you can have on hand in the pantry all the time.


Simple and Quick Potatoes




2 cans 15 ounces each whole potatoes, drained and halved lengthwise

1 tablespoon butter (I used light)

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Salt and Pepper

1 1/2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

1/4 teaspoon sage

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon paprika


In a skillet heat the butter and olive oil then add the potatoes.  Season with salt and pepper and cook over medium heat 8-10 minutes or until browned.  Add the remaining seasonings, cook and stir until the potatoes are nicely coated, an extra 5- 8 minutes.


Really you could use whatever combination of seasonings you have on hand.  Some other suggestions are rosemary, onion powder, oregano, whatever your tastes prefer.
