Skillet Home Fries

I made these last night to go with our breakfast for dinner.  There is something so comforting about biscuits, scrambled eggs, bacon and potatoes!  I love that these potatoes are very low maintenance.  The hardest part about this dish is peeling and cutting the potatoes into cubes. 

I know that sometimes I get the impression that a dish this simple probably doesn't have much flavor but these "fries" are wonderful.  I absolutely love the taste of seasoned salt and it gives a little bit of color to a very plain looking skillet of taters.

1 1/2 lbs Russet potatoes (3-4 large potatoes)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 seasoned salt 
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
Peel potatoes.
Scrub and rinse the potatoes then pat dry using a kitchen towel.
Cut potatoes into cubes (trying to keep them all about the same size).
Place a large non-stick skillet over medium heat then add the butter.
When the butter is melted place potatoes in an even layer on the bottom of the skillet.
Cook for 10 minutes (only turn the potatoes twice during this time).
Season the potatoes with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion and paprika.
Stir to coat the potatoes evenly with seasonings.
Cook for an additional 15-20 minutes until tender on the inside and crisp on the outside.
