Country Fried Potatoes

Some people love sweet, I love bread and potatoes.

Not just for breakfast, Country Fried Potatoes

While most people only make fried potatoes for breakfast, I am out of the house and to work and lack the time.  And yet, when asked to make a side dish for dinner, I reach for potatoes. 

Ingredients:

Potatoes – thinly sliced.

Sliced Onions, Sliced Bell Peppers (Optional)

Salt and Pepper to taste

Heat your frying pan and add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil.  When the oil is just about to smoke, add you potatoes to the pan.  The mistake people make in frying potatoes is they touch them too much.  Place a lid on top of the pan while the first side browns and leave it alone for about 5 minutes. 

Remove the lid, season with salt and pepper and turn these beautiful babies over.  Place the lid back on and leave alone for another 5 minutes.   Salt and pepper and turn over and leave the lid off from now on since the potatoes should be cooked thru, you just want to brown a bit more.

If you want to add onions to the mix, I cook them in a separate pan and add them to the potatoes at this stage.  You can also add sliced bell peppers.  Yummy good.

Your gonna love ’em.
