Preheat oven to 400ºF.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat the EVOO, 2 turns of the pan, and the garlic over medium heat for a minute or so, then discard the garlic. Add the potatoes in a thin layer and season with lots of salt and pepper. Cook until crispy-brown, 8-10 minutes. Flip and cook until the other side is crisp, 6-7 minutes.
