Saute Potatoes Made Easy

Sauted Potatoes
Method: 

Cook potatoes in a pan of boiling water for 4-5 minutes.

Drain the potatoes in a colander; they'll turn out crispier if you let them dry off.

Heat oil or butter in a non-stick pan, add your potatoes.

After a minute, add the 2 cloves of garlic to the pan. Stir and toss well as they cook.

When the potatoes are turning golden brown, add the rosemary and stir through.

When the potatoes are golden brown on all sides they're ready to enjoy!
