Crispy Leftover Garlic Potatoes

Serves 2 or 3

If you’re not a fan of garlic, leave it out. These potatoes are also delicious on their own.


  • About 8 (12 ounces) boiled unpeeled baby Dutch Yellow or Yukon Gold potatoes, cold
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • Flaky sea salt, such as Maldon, and freshly ground black pepper


Cut the potatoes into halves or wedges. Warm the olive oil and butter over medium-low heat in a skillet wide enough to hold them in one layer without crowding.

Add the potatoes and sauté until golden and starting to crisp, turning frequently, about 6 minutes total. Add the garlic, if using, when the potatoes have cooked for about 4 minutes. This will allow the garlic to cook but not burn. Season with sea salt and pepper.
