Ingredients

  • 3 Large Potatoes, Chopped
  • 2/3 Cup Cooking Oil
  • Garlic Salt
  • Garlic Powder
  • Pepper
  • Cheddar Cheese, (Optional)
  • Butter, (Optional)

Instructions

  1. Dice potatoes into 1-inch chunks.
  2. Pour cooking oil evenly over potatoes.
  3. Season with garlic, pepper, and any other seasoning desired. You may also add sliced bell peppers or onions. (If you are adding cheddar cheese, add the cheese in the last 5 minutes of baking to avoid burning it).
  4. Bake for 35 minutes at 450, stirring every 5-7 minutes to prevent the potatoes from sticking to the pan and ensure all of the potatoes are cooked evenly.
  5. Enjoy!
