These skillet potatoes remind me of growing up. My grandmother always made what she called lyonnaise potatoes to go with so many different meals. Her version used tons of butter and oil and were just so delicious. My recipe uses quite a bit less butter but I have two super star ingredients here that take these potatoes from good to great!
The recipe I am sharing here is a great base for you to add even more deliciousness to your potatoes! I like to garnish with a little green onion but some crispy bacon would be delicious too! Even better, throw on some cheese and let melt! You can really dress these up to go with dinner, but they are also versatile enough to serve as a breakfast potato!
