Pat's American Home Fries

“This is the best way I know to use up leftover baked potatoes from the previous evening's steak-fest. I've pretty much settled in on this recipe and it's served me well for about 30 years. My daughter always loved these for breakfast with some leftover hunks of re-heated grilled sirloin and a couple of over-medium eggs. And, this is a good, easy recipe for NEW CHEFS. Enjoy these for breakfast drenched in white gravy along with scrambled eggs.”

Directions

  1. Leave the peelings on the potatoes and dice into 1/2-inch cubes.
  2. Melt the butter and add the oil in a large no-stick skillet over medium-high heat. When the butter/oil is hot, add in the diced potatoes and chopped onion.
  3. Fry until at least 1/2 of the sides have browned -- stirring and turning should be kept to an absolute minimum.
  4. Transfer the home fries to a serving plate with a couple of paper towels on it to absorb extra oil.
