These pan-fried crispy roast potatoes, aka gebratene Kartoffeln, are so quick and easy to make.
They'll become one of your favorites to add to your collection of easy lunch recipes as well as for dinner.
If you have new potatoes or ones that have a fairly thin skin, just leave the skins on, wash by scrubbing well, and cut into wedges or chunks.
Thick-skinned potatoes should be peeled first.
Cut a medium-sized potato into 4 to 6 pieces.
Season with salt and pepper (freshly ground, if possible) or use your favorite seasoning salt. Now, just fry!
You can add parsley, chives, and/or oregano, or your favorite herb. Personally, I could just eat a whole plateful of roast potatoes and be satisfied!
Oma's Stovetop Crispy Roast Potatoes
- 1 - 2 raw potatoes per person, cut into wedges or chunks, peeled if necessary
- oil and/or butter to cover bottom of pan
- salt and pepper
- additional seasonings if desired, such as parsley, chives, and/or oregano
- Heat oil and/or butter in fry pan on high heat.

potatoes and continue frying until most are browned. Add more butter or
oil if necessary. Cover frying pan with lid.
- Lower heat to medium and continue to fry, occasionally flipping potatoes over, being careful not to let them burn.
- Depending on the size of the potatoes wedges or chunks, they should be
tender in about 15 minutes. Remove lid for last few minutes to help

Cooking Tips ...
- Use a large frying pan that has a flat bottom and that will hold your
potatoes in no more than two layers.
- Use either just oil (preferably
olive oil) or butter, or a combination of the two.
Among fried potato recipes, this is my favorite if I've forgotten to pre-cook potatoes to make Bratkartoffeln and all I have is raw potatoes.
Most roasted potato recipes are done in the oven, but they take a lot longer to make, delicious ... if one has time.
This stovetop version is a great alternative to the traditional 'Bratkartoffeln' when you don't have leftover cooked potatoes.
To make this dish even faster, slice the raw potatoes instead of using chunks. That's MY quick version when I feel like I need a 'potato fix'!

Thinking of starting your own Handmade Business?
This Oma KNOWS you CAN do it.
How do I know?
Well, if I can do it, anyone can.
I've even figured out how I can help you.
I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.
Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.
PS: Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.
PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales, and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look ... and a whole bunch to gain.
