  • 3 large russet potatoes, scrubbed

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 small onion, diced

  • ½ medium red bell pepper, diced

  • ½ medium green bell pepper, diced

  • 1 clove garlic, chopped

  • 3 tablespoons salted butter

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, or to taste

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Pierce potatoes with a fork and place on a baking sheet.

  2. Bake in the preheated oven until tender, about 1 hour. Let cool completely, 15 to 20 minutes. Dice potatoes, leaving the skin on.

  3. Heat a large cast iron frying pan or nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil. When hot, add onion, bell peppers, and garlic. Saute until veggies have softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add potatoes, butter, thyme, Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Top with parsley.

Cook's Note:

You can bake the potatoes the day before you prepare this dish.
