“I started growing green onions at home, and they grew up to my knees, Everybody should grow these, it's the easiest herb to grow yet.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In pan, add quarter cup of water with butter a melt on medium heat.
  2. Then turn heat high and add garlic onions, fry for 3 minutes.
  3. Now spoon out mashed potatoes and pat down evenly in pan (fry for 5 minutes - don't worry about burning).
  4. After 5 minutes the butter at the bottom should be oily enough. Pull sides of potato towards centre so it looks like a cone with the top chopped off.
  5. Bring pan up and flip potatoes in air (it sounds hard, but it's really easy. The bottom is oily, to move potato from top to bottom about 3 times for momentum, then on the 4th try flip the potato. The won't work if you're using a skillet. Make sure the pan you have is curves on the sides).
  6. Flatten the potato patty again (this should somewhat mix the green onions, and garlic and fry for another 5 minutes on high.
  7. Repeat this step 3 times (this is somewhat entertaining for children to watch, the next best thing is to douce it with cooking wine and light it on fire).
  8. Now garnish with more green onions and service.
