The BEST way to make gnocchi! Crispy on the outside, pillowy soft on the inside. 


  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil 
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 lbs. gnocchi (shelf stable or refrigerated)
  • 2 cloves minced garlic (more if you like garlic!)
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt 
  • black pepper to taste


  1. Heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium high heat until butter is foaming. Add gnocchi to pan in a single layer, leaving undisturbed for 3 minutes. Then stir, add garlic to skillet, and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown. 

  2. Add garlic and toss together with gnocchi, cooking for another minute, until fragrant.
  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
