i like to do mine a little differently.

i peel, cut into large chunks and par boil the potatoes.

sweat some onions in butter and maple bacon grease, than add the softened spuds, salt, pepper, and paprika.

let them brown a little, then flip to try to brown the other side.

they should be a mix of soft potatoes with some browned, crispy edges.

that's the basic recipe, but sometimes i'll add some diced bell or hot peppers, lardons of pepperoni, or even butter sauteed mushrooms.

BT, I cut the potato into neat little cubes, toss with some oil and microwave them for a few minutes. Easier and faster than parboiling.

I then proceed as others, saute some onion and garlic and maybe some mushrooms. Add the potatoes and a sprinkle of smoked paprika and brown them.
