Crispy New Potatoes With Oregano and Garlic
These potatoes have a beautifully tender and creamy interior with a nice, crispy exterior. The tart-mustardy drizzle puts them over the top and cuts the inherent richness. If you can’t find “new” potatoes, baby reds or baby Yukon Golds will do. You’re essentially frying them in a couple inches of oil. First you add smashed garlic cloves to infuse the frying oil with garlicky flavor (and cook up delicious crispy garlic for serving). Then you add the potatoes. You don’t have to worry about the oil spattering all over your kitchen because you’re using a high-sided skillet and hardly any oil. Serve the spuds while they’re hot and your guests will devour them.
