  • If you'd like to make this a little more buttery, feel free to stir in a tablespoon of butter at the very end.
  • If you've got a well seasoned cast iron pan your potatoes should not stick. If you find they're sticking, I'd recommend re-seasoning it. And make sure to let them completely crisp up on one side so they naturally release from the pan.
