Recipe Notes

  • Shape the leftovers into patties and fry them in a little olive oil or butter.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Melt the butter in a cast iron skillet (preferred) or nonstick skillet. Add the sliced potatoes and cook until they begin to lightly brown.
  2. Pour in the half and half. Gently simmer until the potatoes absorb all the liquid, about 12 to 15 minutes. Gently mash the potatoes if you want less chunks. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.

At what point do you mash the potatoes?
Donna John
You don't. They are thinly sliced and when they absorb all the liquid, kind of fall apart when you stir them.
