“These are all my favorite things, carmelized onions, potatoes and corn. I rarely use the red onion and use a vidalia instead but the red would also add a nice color. I also most times use basil in place of the rosemary as it is a favorite too! This is lower in fat and a better for you potato pancake! From a fitness website.”
