Skillet Home Fries with Herbs de Provence

Author Phoebe Lapine


  • 1 large russet potato about 1 pound, cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 1 large sweet potato about 1 pound, cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika sweet Hungarian
  • ½ teaspoon herbs de Provence
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a large 15-inch cast iron skillet, toss the potato with the remaining ingredients until well combined. Arrange in an even layer, with as little overlap as possible. Bake in the middle of the oven for 20 minutes until the bottom of the potatoes is just starting to brown.
  3. Remove the pan from the oven and using a sturdy flat metal spatula, redistribute the potatoes. If little pieces get stuck on the bottom of the pan, don’t worry. They’ll just become all the more crispy and delicious. Arrange in a even layer, and return to the oven. Bake for another 15 to 20 minutes, until the potatoes are very crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
  4. Serve the potatoes alongside eggs or savory crepes. They taste great with aioli, romesco, or a spicy pesto on the side.
