  • Servings



  • ½

    of a small onion, chopped or diced

  • 1

    tbsp butter

  • 1 to 2

    tbsp olive oil

  • 3

    potatoes, cut into roughly-½" chunks

  • cup water

  • 2

    tsp chili powder

  • 1

    tsp mustard powder (optional but yummy!)

  • 1

    tsp garlic powder

  • ½

    tsp seasoned salt

  • salt to taste

  • fresh ground black pepper to taste


In a skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter and olive oil and throw in the onions. Sautée for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft and clear. While the onions are cooking, microwave the potatoes on a plate for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Add the potatoes, water and seasoning to the skillet, stirring well to evenly coat the potatoes in spices. Continue to stir the potatoes occasionally as you sautée another several minutes until the potatoes are brown and crispy, adding a little oil along the way if the mix looks too dry.
