  • I just put olive oil and a bit of butter in a skillet along with chopped garlic and onions and the potatoes and let cook until crispy. The key is to leave the potatoes alone so they cook. I get too impatient and start flipping them all the time and they don't get crispy. You an par boil the potatoes before frying so they cook faster.
