Z’s Famous Potatoes

Hey Everyone! Hope y’all had a great Christmas with family and friends! I sure did! I wanted to share one of the recipes that I made for our Christmas dinner. It is such a versatile recipe, that can be paired with so many great dishes!

I am “famous” for these potatoes…meaning that everyone my family loves when I make them, and says that they are my “famous potatoes”. Heres the funny part of the story…Ive been making these since I was 7 years old! So, basically, I have been cooking this dish for 25 years!!!

My husband especially loves them, and for us they are a treat (being on the THM lifestyle for 2 years, they are a crossover). They are the perfect side to a “man meal”, I.E. steak or ribs.

I literally wash the potatoes, chop them up and throw everything in a big pan or pot! Yesterday I just used my dutch oven, and they cooked great, but usually I use a big non-stick pan.

They super duper easy. below is the recipe. I hope you enjoy these! Please feel free to let me know how yours turned out!

  • 1 bag of red potatoes
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 4-6 TBS Garlic salt
  • Course ground pepper
  • Parsley (optional)


  1. Wash all potatoes and leave skin on. Put olive oil in pan. Cut potatoes in half, and then slice about 1/4 inch thick. Put all cut up potatoes in pan, and toss until coated in oil. Place on medium heat and cook. Toss intermittently until cooked on all sides, adding 1 TBS of garlic salt and a couple shakes of pepper each time you toss (that allows for all the potatoes to get a lot of flavor!). Cook until soft. If you like your potatoes a little "browner", allow to brown before tossing. Serve hot with fresh parsley (optional).


Makes a large pan/pot for a large family.
