  • 1 1/2 lb potatoes cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 cup diced onion


  • In a large covered skillet, cook the potatoes in the olive oil over medium heat for 10 minutes.
  • Stir the potatoes and turn the heat down to medium-low. Add the seasonings and onion and stir again.
  • Continue to cook over medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes, stirring every two minutes. If the onion bits are turning too brown, turn the heat down a bit. Keep the pan covered.
  • When the potatoes are tender, remove the cover and turn the heat back up to medium. Cook for another minute or two to dry the potatoes out and brown them a bit.
  • Serve warm.
