When I was a kid, we always had a garden. I used to LOVE the first crop coming in. I knew this meant crispy, crusty, yummy, brown, new potatoes. I always loved this. Something about a new potato being creamy and good.
This was my favorite part of the year because I knew that I worked hard to help. I was little, but my hands were helping hands. My grandfather, bless his soul, he calls me Annie, or Jean Annie…he’d always say “Jean Annie, come help me with these potatoes”…or cucumbers, or whatever they might be working on. He’d get me over there and let me use the hoe. I felt so strong and so special. That’s one thing he always did. I felt like no matter what I was the only one that mattered. Everytime I make this recipe I think of this time of my life.
Here’s all you need….
seasoning (i use salt and pepper, sometimes something like bbq rub…)
Cut up potatoes. Usually I cut into fours. I melt some butter in a frying pan and throw it all in the pan. I cover it with a lid, until the potatoes are soft. Once you get to this point, take the lid off and continue to brown the potatoes. Make sure you turn these while cooking!
