Disclosure: As a member of the Pompeian Pantry Insiders Blogger Network, I am being compensated to do a series of 6 blog posts this year on Pompeian oils and vinegars.




August is National Olive Oil Month and Pompeian is gearing up to celebrate. 

In honor of National Olive Oil Month, Pompeian is encouraging people to take the Pompeian Pledge and swap butter for olive oil in everyday recipes. I took the pledge.  I hope you will too!


To see the conversion chart for swapping butter for olive oil,  visit Pompeian. 


1,000 people who take the pledge will be randomly selected to win a coupon for a free bottle of Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil, along with a free movie rental!  On Pompeian’s Facebook timeline, they will also be giving away movie prize packs throughout the month of August!

For my August Pompeian post, I’m sharing my yummy O’Brien Potatoes recipe that I swapped butter for olive oil.  This family-friendly recipe is shown with my Make Ahead Bacon-Wrapped Mini Meatloaf.





I start with 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, but I usually add another tablespoon or more if the pan gets too dry.

  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat.

    I’ve been cutting back on potatoes and these look wonderful (and make me miss them even more!) Love that you switched out the butter for olive oil!
