A good starter recipe. Really no need to boil the potatoes first....that's just another pan to wash. I use an electric skillet. Melt a little butter and add a little oil. Throw in the diced potatoes, with the skin on, and as much sweet onion as you like. I use vidalia or mayan. Skip the green pepper. Then just get happy with the spices. We like celery seed, a touch of cumin, a dash of paprika, salt and pepper, garlic powder, whatever we happen to grab. It always comes out deelish. Definitely good for breakfast, lunch or anytime. For dinner we might throw a little gravy and maybe some shredded cheese on them. Always crispy if I leave the lid on. I don't have the problem another reviewer has with them not crisping. Maybe it's the nonstick electric skillet....don't really know.
I found this recipe to be just so-so as written. A few extra spices and it could be wonderful.
Finally the perfect fried potatoes. I have been trying to make fried "taters" and they always either come out too mushy, or not done enough. I was scanning through recipes and came across this one where you boiled the potatoes a little bit first before frying. I tried it and it worked perfectly. Have done it several times and they came out perfect every time!!
I used regular potatoes and fried with a little onion..served with pinto beans and corn bread
Great recipe! I left out the green pepper as I didn't have any on hand. I added a little garlic and used smoked paprika instead of regular to give it a different flavor - excellent!
Great flavor-I modified the recipe by cutting the potatos first and microwaving them for 8 minutes, instead of boiling them; it cut down on time (and the mess!!!)
WOW! Did this recipe get some activity this past week (smile:))! All the publicity promted me to make these for lunch to go with our homemade corndogs. I followed another's advice and used regular baking potatoes, which I peeled, cubed and then cooked in the microwave for apprx 10 min (just to speed up the process so that they would better match the cooking time of the corndogs I was making). Also, I added half of a chopped, red bell pepper. This tastes just like those O'brian potatoes you can purchase in stores and although those are a little more convenient, the taste of these are much better. I sprinkled a little cheese to melt over my serving while my boyfriend and daughter used their extra ketchup from their corn dogs with theirs. A good side to any meal: B/L/D! Thanks Verona!
I scaled this recipe to feed 35 people and it turned out great. Great recipe for a breakfast or brunch.
I had a craving for some home fried potatoes and this recipe hit it on the nose for perfection. First I microwaved some regular potatoes-much easier. Then I peeled(I prefer no skins) and when cooled chopped into little cubes. Next I chopped up 1/2 green pepper, 1/2 red pepper, 1/2 onion into little cubes and sauteed in my electric skillet with some olive oil for 3minutes then added a couple of dabs of butter and sauteed for another 2 minutes. In went the potatoes with black pepper, salt, paprika, garlic powder and whatever spice you like and mix it all up and I added a few more dabs of butter(love butter). I let it cook for 10 minutes or more on each side on med/low setting. Easier for me to break it up in sections with spatula in the skillet to flip it over- so each side is nice and brown. A must try-YUMMY!!!!
