Quick and Easy!
Fried potatoes are what I make when I don't want to spend all morning on breakfast. I pair it with bacon, eggs and easy biscuits and breakfast is done in only 20 minutes.
What makes these fried potatoes so good is the homemade spice I use on them. I got the recipe from the McCormick website and have since tweaked it to make it perfect for me and my family. You'll find my recipe down below.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 25-30 minutes
- 2 large potatoes
- 1 tsp Salt 'n' Spice (look below for recipe)
- 2 Tbsp oil
- 1. Peel potatoes and cut into 1/2 - 1 inch chunks
- 2. Heat oil in frying pan on medium heat
- 3. Add potatoes to oil
- 4. Shake Salt 'n' Spice onto potatoes (adding more or less as desired) and stir to distribute spice
- 5. Fry for about 20 minutes, stirring potatoes every 3 or 4 minutes
- 6. Drain potatoes on a paper towel before serving
Salt & Spice Recipe
Do you remember when McCormick had their Salt 'n' Spice Blend? Well, it was a favorite of mine. When they stopped making it a few years back, they published this recipe so you can make it at home. I use it on everything. This makes 1/3 cup.
- Prep time: 5 min
- Ready in: 5 min
- 1/4 cup sea salt
- 2 Tbsp peppercorn medley (in the grinder)
- 1 Tbsp garlic salt
- 1 Tbsp onion powder
- 1 1/2 tsp celery seed
- When choosing your ingredients, choose what your family likes. We prefer sea salt so that's what we use. But when I make it for my Gran, I use kosher salt because that's what she likes.
- The original recipe calls for garlic pepper seasoning but you can substitute that with any pepper mix. I prefer to get the peppercorn medley and fresh grind them when I mix the spice.
- 1. Mix all ingredients
- Store in tightly covered jar in cool, dry place.

A bit healthier
To make these a bit healthier, boil your potatoes for 8 minutes before you fry them. That way they'll soak up less oil.
