  • Total Time: 55 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


  • 2 lbs. russet potatoes (approximately 4 cups diced)
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp. coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Rinse and scrub your potatoes, leaving the skin on. While they dry, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Dice the potatoes into 1 inch cubes and lay them on the baking sheet. In a small saucepan, heat the butter, olive oil, garlic powder, paprika and thyme until everything is in a liquid state and the spices have gotten fragrant, 3-4 minutes.
  4. Pour the butter and olive oil spice mixture over the potatoes and sprinkle on the salt and pepper. Toss everything well, and place in the oven for 20 minutes. Turn all the potatoes over. Put them back into the oven until golden and crispy, about 25-28 minutes more.
