French Potatoes

This is one of my favorite ever ways to prepare potatoes, first, because it’s so easy, and second, because they taste delicious like this.  I usually use fingerling potatoes for this, but heirloom work just as nicely.

Serves 4-6

Ingredients

1.5 pounds heirloom potatoes, peeled and made as round as possible
3 tsp fresh thyme
Kosher salt (to taste)
2 Tbls unsalted butter
1 Tbls olive oil

Mmmm….buttery.

Heirloom potatoes tend to be different sizes, so cooking time will vary.

Heat oil and butter in a 12 inch saucepan. Add potatoes and fry for a couple minutes on all sides. Lower heat and cover potatoes, shaking pan to turn the potatoes from time to time.

Check potatoes after about 20 minutes, when a knife goes in and out easily in the center of the biggest potato. Add salt to taste, sprinkle with thyme, and serve right away.
