  • 2 pounds gold potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 45 teaspoons minced garlic (about 4 large garlic cloves)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Add the salt to a large pot of water and bring it to a boil on the stove. Add the cubed potatoes into the boiling water and bring to a simmer. Allow the potatoes to simmer for 5-7 minutes, or until they are a crisp fork tender but not quite cooked through all the way
  3. Drain the potatoes and let them sit 5-10 minutes to dry a bit in the strainer. While the potatoes are sitting, make the garlic butter by adding the butter and garlic into a large oven-safe skillet
  4. Melt the butter and cook until the garlic is soft and fragrant in the melted butter, about 8-10 minutes. Then add the oil into the skillet. Heat the oil about 1 to 2 minutes and mix together with the butter and garlic
  5. Once oil is shimmering and heated, add in the potatoes and gently toss/stir to coat the potatoes with the oil and garlic sauce. Turn the stove to high heat and leave them undisturbed for 3 minutes to begin crisping
  6. Gently toss/stir the potatoes again and leave them alone again to crisp for 3 minutes. Then transfer the skillet into the heated oven and bake for 15 minutes until the potatoes are golden and crispy around the edges
  7. Once done, remove from the oven and toss with the parsley and pepper


  • The potatoes do not need to be peeled
  • To make dairy free, vegan or paleo, use a vegan butter (or ghee if not vegan)
