Ingredients

2 lb
yukon gold potatoes (4 medium) scrubbed, partially cooked and sliced thinly or diced into 1/2-inch cubes
1/4 c
olive oil
3 to 4 Tbsp
unsalted butter
1 large
onion, yellow or vidalia
salt and pepper to taste

Step-By-Step

1Melt the butter with the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the potatoes and spread evenly in the pan. Cook undisturbed until the potatoes are golden brown on one side, about 5 minutes.

3Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
