This is quick and easy and makes a great weeknight meal when you may be short on time. I especially like to make this during the summer when the vegetables are so fresh and really add a lot of flavor to the dish. I got this from a locally produced cookbook. I hope you like it as much as my family does!
If possible use a cast-iron skillet for this but any skillet will do, also use only shortening for this. Cooking time is only estimated depending on the size you cut the potatoes, adjust all seasonings to taste. Make certain that you the cooked cubed potatoes are cold before using in this recipe!
An elegant side dish served in the finest New York and Boston Hotels/Restaurants in the 1920s and '30s. It's a bit of work but it's not difficult if you follow the instructions and the result is certainly worth the effort. If ever there was a recipe "from scratch," this is it - thus, it's a great recipe on which one can begin building real cooking skills. The genesis of this dish comes from "Fannie Farmer's Boston Cooking School Cook Book". Definitely not for dieters! It's my favorite side dish with poultry and/or pork.
The Greenbrier is a beautiful resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. This is one way they prepare potatoes. They sometimes add horseradish to taste and half blue cheese or substitute sweet potatoes in the recipe.
