The Best Home Fries Recipe

5 from 1 reviews

Crispy on the outside, and creamy in the middle, these seasoned, herby home fries tick all the right boxes when it comes to making the best home fries with the best possible potatoes for a skillet!




  1. Wash, peel, then cut your potatoes in half the long way, then lay flat and cut in half again into quarters, and then cut each quarter in half. Now, cut into cubes, and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, add butter and melt, then add chopped onions, cooking for about 1 minute, then add garlic, cook for 30 seconds, then add potatoes and cover for about 10 minutes.
  3. Remove cover and add paprika, mix, then add herbs. Cook uncovered for another 10 minutes.  Stir gently to prevent burning.
  4. In the last minute, sprinkle with salt, pepper, lemon zest and parmesan cheese. Squeeze a half of lemon gently (to your taste preference) over potatoes and serve!
