If you are tired of serving mashed, boiled or baked potatoes, here’s a real treat. These buttery golden potatoes are simmered until tender then pan fried for a buttery interior and a crispy exterior.



1 – 28oz bag Honey Gold Potatoes, you could also use Yukon Gold or Fingerling potatoes

2 Tbsp canola oil

Salt and Pepper to taste



  1. Rinse potatoes in a colander, but do not peel.
  2. Place the potatoes in a large pan and cover with water; add 1 tsp of salt.
  3. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until just tender. Be careful to not overcook the potatoes or they will start falling apart. The small honey gold potatoes will only take about 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Heat the canola oil in a large heavy skillet. Add several potatoes and gently smash with a potato masher or the bottom of a heat-proof glass. You want to keep the potatoes about 1/2-inch thick. Season with salt and pepper and fry until crisp on both sides.
  5. Remove potatoes to a sheet pan and keep warm in a 250° F oven until all of the potatoes have been fried.
