"Yummy fried potatoes with the flavor of Kentucky. Easy to make while camping or at home. Leftovers store great in the fridge for a microwave breakfast on the go. For an East Coast twist, add diced green pepper." — MS. DEE

potatoes, peeled and sliced
Vidalia onion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
I sprinkled the potatoes with a little Johnny's seasoning salt (instead of regular salt) and fresh ground pepper but other than that, I followed the recipe exact. Delicious. I made these to go along chili dogs. My husband said this is exactly how HIS dad made home fries.
Good but not great.
Delicious! These "Kentucky style" home fries were very easy to prepare and very good. I cut the recipe in half and partially microwaved my potaotes to cut down on cooking time. The bacon drippings while I admit aren't the most "healthy" really gave the home fries a nice flavor. All I added a little garlic, a bit of salt and peper with a dash of paprika and they were perfect with eggs, bacon and toast. What more could you want for breakfast?
These are wonderful. I have been making them just this way for years. Sometimes I like to add just a touch of garlic. I also like to cover mine between stirring to help soften up the potatoes.
I cook the potatoes for about 10 minutes first, then add the onions and peppers and cook for another 10 minutes... it keeps the onions from burning.
WOnderful! This is just how I grew up eating my fried potatoes. It doesn't matter whether you slice them, chunk them, quarter them, or shred them, they are awesome. These must be done in a cast iron skillet, it just isn't the same in any other pan. I add lots of black pepper to mine as well. This is my favorite, but really unhealthy, way to eat potatoes. Wrap these in a flour tortilla with scrambled egg and serve with hot sauce, yummy! Great for breakfast or dinner as a side dish. Good Southern cooking.
This has been my favorite Texas food since childhood.
I love to eat the hot potatoes/onions with cold ketchup. There have to be some extra-crispy areas on the taters.
Maybe we should just say it's great home cooking with working class roots?
Very good potatoes. Not something we can get away with eating every day, but a special treat once in a while. I partially pre-cook the potatoes in the microwave (or use leftovers) so they cook up quicker and splatter less in the pan.
