Quick and Easy Home Fries

Home Fries Crisping in a Skillet
First prepared and recorded April 16, 2012.
1 medium russet potato, scrubbed and dried
1 T oil
1 T butter
paprika
salt and pepper
Prick the skin and microwave for 3 minutes on high power (1250 watts). Let cool, quarter lengthwise, remove skin, and cut into half-inch (12 mm) pieces. In an 8-inch (20 cm) non-stick skillet over medium-high, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the butter. When sizzling stops, add the potatoes and season them well. Fry quickly, undisturbed, for about 5 minutes until nicely crisped on the bottom. Turn over, and continue frying another 2 to 3 minutes. Serves 1 or 2. Can easily be doubled, as in the photo.
