Olive oil and butter
You don't have to peel the potatoes, but I do. Dice the potatoes, then heat enough equal parts olive oil and butter to give you 1/4 inch's worth in a skillet. Add potatoes, and pan fry for about 5 minutes until they just start to brown, tossing (or stirring) occasionally.
When the edges are barely brown, add the chopped onion, 1/4-1/2 cup depending on how much you like. Cook the potatoes and onions for another 10 minutes, continuing to flip/stir.
The potatoes have now been cooking for 15 minutes, and they're browning nicely. Add seasoned salt and thyme to taste, and cook for another 5 minutes.
Once they are nice and brown...
Serve as part of a complete breakfast. :)
Note: I am using an Orgreenics ceramic pan. I swear by it. I got two medium sized skillets for $20 from the Telebrands website. It is IMPOSSIBLE to damage it, also the best nonstick surface I've ever encountered, without all the chemicals!
You can use any manner of spices and vegetables you like; if you have bell pepper, use it! If you like jalapenos, have fun with them! This is merely a template for time and method. <3 Grayce
