Step 1: In a large cast iron frying pan or skillet, heat the oil and butter over medium- to high heat. Add the potatoes and cook with a lid on, stirring occasionally until the potatoes are golden brown - about 30 to 45 minutes depending on the type of potatoes used. Take the lid off for the last 10 minutes of cooking. If using fresh garlic, add now and cook for a further 5 minutes, until the garlic is soft.
Step 2: Season with salt, pepper, granulated garlic and paprika or cayenne pepper, and serve on an attractive platter or plate. Sprinkle freshly chopped parsley over the top and serve hot, with bacon, eggs, cold meats, salads, sandwiches etc.
