Herbed Potatoes

This comes together quick because you use canned potatoes!  It does use quite a selection of herbs though, so if this becomes a common side dish you may want to mix all the ingredients up in an old spice jar and sprinkle about 4.5 ts at a time over potatoes.


  • 1 quart of diced or halved potatoes
  • 1tb butter (or so)
  • 1tb olive oil (or so)
  • 1-1/2tsp parsley
  • 1/2 ts basil
  • 1/2 ts thyme
  • 1/2 ts safe
  • 1/2 ts rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 ts garlic powder
  • 1/4 ts paprika
  • 1/4 ts black pepper


  1. Drain and rinse potatoes.  I like to let them sit in a colander for a bit and air dry so they aren’t soggy.
  2. Heat oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add potatoes and cook for 6-8 minutes or until browned.  Add the herbs and cook (stirring occasionally) until well coated and warm throughout.
