What to do with leftover cooked potatoes? Make Crispy Home Fries! Photo tutorial.

Anytime I cook red potatoes, I like to make extra just so I can turn them into home fries the next day.  Who doesn't love home fries?  Here's how I make them - I cut them in half, then cube them.

I preheat a cast iron skillet and add a little olive oil and butter.

When the pan is nice and hot, I add the potatoes, being careful to get as much cut surface contact with the hot pan.  Don't mess around moving the potatoes - they'll release from the pan naturally when a nice crust forms on that cut surface.

Like this!  Now you can start tossing and stirring the potatoes until they're crispy all over.  A minute or so before serving, add the salt, pepper, granulated onion, granulated garlic, and sliced scallions - stir well until fragrant (30-60 seconds).  Serve immediately.
