Pan and Fried Potatoes : Creative Mondays Blog Hop…

Hello and welcome to this weeks Creative Mondays blog hop. Hosted by Clairejustineoxox and Judyh-jsThoughts where you can link up all your creative post each week…. what have you all been up to this week?

This week I found these sweet little new potatoes in Tesco this week and wondered are they whites or reds? thought they looked great and at the special offer price of 50p a pack they taste great too…

What you need:

  • 750 g Albert Bartlett Apache potatoes
  • 3 tbsp Virgin Olive Oil
  • Good sprinkle of freshly grounded sea salt
  • Good sprinkle freshly grounded pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Mixed herbs


  1. Wash the potatoes  and chop in half in a pan of cold water until ready to use.
  2. Bring the pan to boiling point and simmer for about 20 minutes until cooked.
  3. Heat a large frying pan with the 3 tbsp of virgin olive oil.
  4. Place the drained potatoes in the pan and sprinkle the salt, pepper and mixed herbs over.
  5. Turn the heat to medium and fry stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes
