Garlic Thyme Fried Potatoes

Garlic Thyme Fried Potatoes

Potatoes – One of the world’s favorite ingredients. There are a lot of different dishes made with this awesome root vegetable and today’s recipe is one easy, one pan, delicious fried potatoes.

Fried here is a loose term.. These are shallow fried on a cast iron pan. But the recipe can be made in an air fryer basket with the oil totally cut or baked in oven.


But Me, here I am going to FRY them for the awesome crispy and yummy potato chunks.

The recipe while being made will make your house smell divine with all the dried Thyme and pepper in it. And yes, DO NOT FORGET FRESHLY CRUSHED GARLIC.

If you have a garlic press, use it to your advantage. While the garlic tastes good in the food, it is not while it is sticking in your hand.
