I wanted to get this Garlic Home Fries recipe out to you, because it’s super delicious, versatile, and easy thanks to some simple ingredients.
These Garlic Home Fries go with so many things, like smoked sausage split and crisped in the oven. Add a pair of fried eggs for an easy weeknight supper. In addition, they’re awesome with my Bacon-Wrapped Chili Chicken (with or without the mushroom sauce). If you bought extra corned beef roasts while they were on sale in March for St. Patrick’s Day, it’s great chopped into these potatoes for a great hash with buttered toast.
Garlic Home Fries in a Skillet or Oven
You can cook these in a frying pan or roast them in the oven. I usually throw them on a foil-lined baking sheet in the oven so I don’t have to pay attention to them as closely as in a skillet. Add to that, the foil makes for super simple clean-up. However, sometimes I’m not so careful with the spatula and scrape a hole in the foil. But at least there isn’t a big mess to deal with. On the other hand, the taste of them fried in a cast iron skillet reminds me of the great old-fashioned diner food from my youth.
Garlic Home Fries
- 3 tbsp light olive oil
- 4 pcs bacon, cut into small pieces
- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 4-6 potatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 3 tbsp Weber Roasted Garlic & Herb Seasoning, to taste
- 2 tbsp paprika
- Cook bacon pieces in oil over medium-high heat until almost done. Add onions and saute for a few minutes.
- Stir in potatoes and seasonings. Reduce heat to medium and fry on one side without disturbing for 10 minutes.
- Scrape potatoes up from the bottom of skillet and flip over. Fry on other side for about 10 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
- Preheat to 425°F. Line a large jellyroll pan with aluminum foil.
- Scatter bacon pieces and cook in oven until 3/4 done, about 15 minutes.
- In a large bowl, toss onions, potatoes, and seasonings with oil. Spread around with bacon on the baking sheet.
- Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully flip over. Continue baking another 15 minutes or so until potatoes are tender and crispy.
One thing further, Idaho potatoes are best for making mashed potatoes and baking, in my opinion. But Yukon Gold are fabulous if you’re not in the mood to peel potatoes. We love the YG in my One Pot Smoked Sausage, Potatoes, & Green Beans. I don’t take the time to peel these Garlic Home Fries so use whatever potatoes you have on hand. They’ll be delicious no matter what!
