  • Cook until the onions start to caramelize -turn brown and are translucent (pic 4). Add the potatoes (don’t overload the skillet) and sprinkle Italian seasoning into the pan. Use your own judgment on the amount, start with about 1 teaspoon and go from there (pic 5). Increase heat back to medium and cook until potatoes are browned and tender. Mix the pan 3 or 4 times to cook all evenly. (pic 6) TIP: If you cover the pan for a few minutes, it will help the potatoes become more tender.
