If you like your potatoes crisp you must add your favorite oil to this recipe either with or without butter and don't cover. The potatoes will brown their best if you don't 'play with them', just let them cook/brown turning occasionally, also for a little added flavor add a little garlic salt and onion powder.

I made these in my cast iron skillet, used 2 T of butter, which was plenty, and added onion during the second 10 minutes. The timing was perfect and they turned out amazing! Thank you!

Always delicious! I make sure to wipe them dry with a clean kitchen towel before I throw them in the skillet, so they're really crispy. And I do use olive oil most of the time instead of butter.
