  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter unsalted
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme chopped
  • 2 lb baby potatoes cut in half
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp pepper or to taste


  • In a large 12 inch skillet heat the olive oil and butter until melted over medium heat.
  • When the oil is hot, add the chopped thyme, and stir. This will help infuse the thyme aroma into the oil.
  • Arrange the potatoes in the skillet, with the cut side down and cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes or until the potatoes are brown and crisp.
  • Turn the potatoes over and cover the skillet with a lid. Continue cooking over medium heat for another 8 to 10 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Remove from skillet and serve.


I used a Lodge brand cast iron skillet for this recipe.
